A New Shop in Egypt’s Market
Gamal was working in Libya to help take care of his family. He was on his way home to Egypt in August 2014 when his bus was stopped by Islamic extremists. He and three other Christians were forced out of the bus. At gunpoint, the militants forced the driver to drive away. That was the last Gamal’s wife ever heard from her husband or the other two men. There has been no word of their death and no demand for a ransom. With your help, ICC helped Gamal’s wife, Manal, purchase clothing that she and her father can sell from a stand at the daily markets.
“I thank ICC so much for calling us, always asking about us, encouraging us, visiting us and making this project for us,” Manal said. “This project has helped us to overcome our bad circumstances. It has helped us to make income to meet the physical needs for me and my children. May God bless you. Thank you so much, ICC.”
Her greater request is something that all Christians can do: “I ask ICC to continue praying for the return of my husband.”
