- This blog was created by 2 American missionaries living in Zambia: Fr Abraham & Dalia Fam.
- The reason this blog was created to encourage all Coptic Orthodox Christian believers to fulfill the great commission of “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations” Matthew 28:19
- Of course any believer can gain from these experiences.
- This blog is based on the mission experiences we gained while serving in Africa for the last 13 years.
- Mission has really been a focus for us early on, even while living in America.
- We are learning everyday how to grow the mission of Christ. We are by no means experts but felt compelled by God to share what we have learned so far.
- We pray we can start to incorporate more mission & evangelism in all our churches and our own personal life.
- We believe that every Christian is a missionary and every Church is a mission church.
- Mission won’t happen by chance but needs to be an intentional part of our church life and our own daily life.
- We believe that all Coptic Orthodox Christians and churches should “Go”.
- Not to stay still and be satisfied with only keeping existing members but reaching to all the communities and all nations as Christ said in the great commission.
- We have a motto: “Mission Everywhere to Everyone”
- So we hope you enjoy this blog and the resources we have on this site to help you in your journey to“Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. Mark 16:15
