Support a Child Grow Both Spiritually and Academically
Coptic Cross Ministries strongly believes that each child deserves to grow spiritually and academically, and that this is as important as growing physically. Reading the Bible helps children know who God is. They discover facts about God’s character and His deep love for them and the world. Their knowledge of God helps them to trust Him and build a relationship with Him. Trusting God is the way for children to live the life of obedience to Him.
In almost every house the organization enters to aid, Coptic Cross meets with precious children of all ages. School aged children are then provided a Bible and school supplies as many of the times they have neither.
Education is the first step to overcoming poverty. Having enough school supplies improves grades, creativity, attitudes towards learning, behavior, peer relationships and self-image. A single pack of pencils and paper could be the gateway to academic success allowing a student to make it all the way to college.
Thank God, with donor support, the organization has purchased and distributed Bibles and school supplies to 280 children of all ages so far. Coptic Cross gives a special Bible for each age group and about 8 different kinds of school supplies.
$25 enables Coptic Cross to purchase a Bible and one year’s worth of school supplies for one child.
$100 enables us to purchase Bibles and one year’s worth of school supplies for a family of 4.
When visiting poor Coptic families in Egypt, the organization’s volunteers take with them four different age-appropriate Bibles and eight different kinds of school supplies. Coptic Cross Ministries gives each child a Bible that is appropriate to his/her age. Children also receive a sufficient quantity of school supplies, such as coloring tools, crayons, pens, pencils, sharpeners, erasers, rollers, and different size notebooks.
Coptic Cross considers this ministry to be one of the most important ministries the organization has because children are naturally bright and inquisitive. Children by nature ask questions all the time. For instance, they ask, “who is God? How does He exist? Does God really love us? Why did God create the world and us? Why is there evil in the world? What happens to us when one dies?” This is just a few of many questions!
Equipping children and youth with the Bible helps them grow in the love and knowledge of Christ and allows them to find answers to questions they may have.
Thank God, with donor support, so far, Coptic Cross has made it possible for 280 children of all ages to receive Bibles and school supplies to grow both spiritually and academically.
