We were grateful and blessed this week to receive the following letter from His Grace Metropolitan Bakhomious.
Dear Coptic Orphans Staff,
Peace and grace! We pray that the Lord blesses you.
I am writing to thank you for your love and care for the fatherless children in the diocese. You provide spiritual, church, financial, and social support according to the biblical understanding that aligns with the Church’s methods; and our children who serve in the diocese also serve with you. You also care for developing the mothers and servants, by involving the diocese to monitor your work in all your activities.
We thank you again and pray that the Lord blesses your service, and that we keep our mutual work for the glory of the Lord Jesus, as children of the Coptic Orthodox Church that is the Body of Christ.
May the Lord reward your loving effort and care!
God be with you and bless you!
Metropolitan Bakhomious of Behaira and Associated Region

It is a great blessing to hear these words of support from His Grace Metropolitan Bakhomious.
I hope they are heard across the United States, Canada, Australia and beyond, by the entire Coptic Orphans family and all of our friends, relatives, and fellow Copts.
It is only by God’s grace, and thanks to your love, prayers, and support, that Coptic Orphans is able to work in partnership with His Grace Metropolitan Bakhomious and 54 other bishops in Egypt, serving the children.
