On my way to Poland, I had a very moving experience at Newark Airport. A young man came to me and asked me for a few minutes of conversation. His name is Romany, and he is a Coptic Catholic from Egypt. Romany, with his wife and children, needed to flee from Egypt due to the persecution of Christians which is taking place there now. The powers of the world are busy with other conflicts connected with money, oil, and the distribution of power; they do not pay much attention to the tragedy affecting the Christians in Egypt. They are falsely accused, chastised, fired from their jobs, forced to become Muslims, and even killed. This is their daily experience. Romany asks for blessings and prayers for his family, for his difficult life situation, and a for a better job so he would be able to support his family. In Egypt, he had a very good job, and he is highly educated. He speaks English. He has been welcomed by the United States and takes whatever job may be available that he would be able to take care of his loved ones.
Imagine people facing death for their faith every day and still getting tattoo crosses on their wrists! I have seen great and beautiful faith in this young man. Please, pray for him and all the Christians who are persecuted in Egypt.
When I wanted to know more about the situation of the Christians in Egypt I found the site:
This site truly helped me to understand Romany’s situation.
