  • May/June Update from the Diocese of Egypt with North Africa and the Horn of Africa

    5 August 2014

    My dear friends, The Middle East is groaning. You hear about what is happening in Iraq and the many Christians who are being forced to leave their homes and also those who were killed by ISIS (Daash). Over 1,500 have been killed in Gaza and 8,000 were injured in the recent days because of the fighting between Israel and Hamas. Syria is suffering... more»

    20 November 2013

    The clergy in Gambella, Ethiopia, are bringing the light of Christ to the people around them, yet the context in which they are serving is overwhelming due to poverty, natural disasters, and tribal conflict.

  • Churches attacked in Egypt

    15 August 2013

    As I write these words, our St. Saviour's Anglican Church in Suez is under heavy attack from those who support former President Mursi. They are throwing stones and Molotov cocktails at the church and have destroyed the car of Rev. Ehab Ayoub, the priest-in-charge of St. Saviour's Church. I am also aware that there are attacks on other Orthodox churches in Menyia and Suhag in Upper Egypt (see photo), as well as a Catholic church in Suez. Some police stations are also under attack in different parts of Egypt. Please pray and ask others to pray for this inflammable situation in Egypt. more»

    29 November 2012

    "Egypt is like a patient recovering from a surgery. The body is still struggling to survive. We will have to wait and see what happens. Right now there is no clear vision or road map for the future. The Muslim Brotherhood spoke about a big project called “Revival” but no one knows this project, what are the implications, the goals, the aims, etc… It is very cloudy at the moment. But, however, we should say, that we have hope because we are in the hands of the Lord and He is in charge and He is in control." link»

    24 May 2011

    We've all seen the reports on TV and in the papers telling us that things in Egypt have been changing quickly over the last couple of months.

  • Report from Egypt

    10 February 2011

    It was a really hard start to the year, with 23 people killed by a bomb as they left their church in Alexandria a few minutes into the New Year. For me, it felt like the day of 9/11, a feeling of shock and disbelief that this could happen. As a foreigner, I'm one step removed, but the feeling at work was so sad. My workmates are generally laughing and walk into each other's offices telling jokes and laughing but everyone was so sad and subdued. This was followed by days of protests by Christians, who feel ignored by the government, and not protected enough. more»

  • Anglican Taonga

    8 February 2011

    "In the midst of the turmoil which Egypt is going through, we have felt that the Lord is very near to us. We have experienced his peace, and we were assured of his protection. In most of our churches and homes, there have been prayer meetings for the situation and for our beloved country Egypt. All our churches are safe, although they have not been guarded by the security since Friday when all the security were withdrawn. This assured us that the one who protects the churches is the Lord of the Church." link»
