  • New Gift Policy

    Date posted: February 1, 2016

    We have the best sponsors! In fact, you’re so great, that we have run into a problem in the US. Until now, we have invited you to send physical packages to your children. People traveling to Egypt carried all gifts. The volume of gifts, however, has grown so large that it takes months for us […]

  • QandA: Why is Christmas celebrated January 7th?

    Date posted: December 10, 2015

    January 7th is considered “Orthodox Christmas” and is celebrated around the world in strong orthodox settings (ie. Russian, Ukrainian, and Serbian orthodox churches). Egypt has a strong orthodox church, too, known as the Coptic Church.   The Coptic Church is the largest percentage of Christians in Egypt, so all Egyptian Christians follow the holidays according […]

    Guest Blogger: Christy I have been anticipating writing this post for a while. Eager to tell about my recent trip to Egypt (we weren’t allowed to say anything ahead of time for safety reasons), feelings of excitement and hesitation have been churning beneath the surface.  I’ve been hesitant to write because I’m still wondering how I can possibly give such a […]

  • Defeating the Giant

    Date posted: November 4, 2014

    For generations, communities and families and individuals have been told it isn’t possible.  They’ve been told they aren’t good enough. They aren’t capable enough.  They aren’t worthy of the resources required.  Education won’t change their circumstances.  Their futures won’t change.  They can’t be changed. As this message has been passed down through generations, the belief in its words […]

  • The Quarry

    As you make your way from the desert road to the city of Minya, you can’t help but pay attention to the clouds of white.  At times it can look like a snowstorm has come through.  Other times, it can look like something you’d imagine in outer space.  The stark white stone, trucks piled high with […]

  • Worth 1,000 Words…Sometimes

    Date posted: July 22, 2014

    “A picture is worth a thousands words” It is common that as situations are described or plans are laid out, we desperately want to see a picture to get a better understanding.  We don’t write multi-page reports to describe how our children have grown.  We send photos.  We don’t pass around journals to describe our recent trip. […]

  • Fatherless, Widowed, and Lonely

    Date posted: July 9, 2014

    “Sing to God, sing praise to his name; extol him who rides on the clouds — his name is the Lord — and rejoice before him. A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in his holy dwelling.   God sets the lonely in families, he leads forth the prisoners with singing…”  […]

    Guest Blogger: Chris Brad, the 50 year old leader of our group looked me in the eye and sternly said, “If I tell you to get on the bus, get on the bus.” Ten minutes later his voice rose above the noise as he said, “Get all the Americans inside right now.” And the somewhat […]
