    You still aren’t understanding me.

    The 20 years in Haran prior to crossing the Euphrates cannot be said to be “in Misrayim” or “in Egypt and Canaan.” However, Exodus 12 requires at minimum the start and end point of the 430 must be in Canaan or Egypt. Your starting point in Haran results in a starting point that is not in either, but is counted “to the very same day” by Moses, for the 430 years in Misrayim.
