I'll Die in Faith: A Coptic Orphan's Poem

Children are perhaps the hardest hit by the ongoing violence and attacks against Egyptian Christians and their churches.

Many are traumatized, and some are expressing their sentiments and emotions by drawing or writing poems.

We wanted to share this picture we received. It was drawn by an Egyptian child during the height of the violence last week.

Also, take a look at this poem written by a Coptic orphan with images added by The Coptic Orphans organization. Coptic Orphans helps this child, other orphans, and widows who are typically treated as outcasts in Egyptian society.

I was privileged last year to accompany Coptic Orphans to witness some of their work in Luxor and did a report for CBN News. If you missed my report, watch it here: Egyptian widows & orphans story.

And watch this video from Coptic Orphans. I know it will touch your heart-- and may even lead you to pray and help our Egyptian brothers and sisters in Christ who are suffering for Jesus!
