Pastors Rezk & Naamah of Praise Chapel Al Qusiyah hosted a Church Camp Meeting for their people. It was a time of Fellowship, Food and Fun centered around Worship, Prayer and the Word of God. Over 100 of their Congregation were able to attend. These included adults, children and teens.
This village is all Coptic Orthodox. Evangelistic work is new here; the local shepherd didn’t expect people to come. He said, “Can they bring 30 princes?”
Everyone was surprised by the turnout.
My message was about freedom from slavery and transit as God’s people from the land of Egypt. The Holy Spirit told me, Despite the departure and crossing of the people from the land of Egypt, there were people who were still slaves within themselves, bound from the inside, not without.
I said, There are women who have a form of freedom on the outside, but on the inside, you’re tied to internal slavery from the past. It may be sexual slavery or rape, but you are still tied to it.
This kind of truth and preaching is very difficult to say in villages, but the Holy Spirit was leading me and attending the souls of the people. Then a surprise happened; 4 women stood up in tears seeking the Lord and freedom from sin.

14 Women came to CHRIST this night, and the alters were filled. The meeting was a Spiritual Triumph.
New Shoes, New Life!
At the conclusion all the women and their kids were given new shoes.
EGYPT IS RIPE FOR HARVEST! THERE’S A TRUE HUNGER FOR GOD AND SPIRITUAL REALITY.

The Church we used for our Women’s Revival in the Village of Azpet Hane has been closed for the last four months because of its own internal struggles and a tragedy which occurred among it’s families. Our meeting here was a Revival in the truest sense. It literally brought healing to the congregation who were divided.
60 Women gathered for the service, Pastor/Evangelist Habib delivered a very strong message that touched all present, the alter was filled with women crying out to God. 13 Women received Jesus as their Savior.
The final result of our meeting here is that more Village Women were touched, (something unique that’s happening throughout Egypt that’s not happened before), and the doors of this Village Church are now open again.
Pastor Habib traveled to Alkom Alhmer, about 150 kilometers from Al Minya.
There he met with 90 women who gathered at the church where the meeting was held and the Spirit of God moved powerfully among them.
Habib described the service there as, “A very enthusiastic day,” of worship, prayer and the preaching of the Word.
17 women accepted Christ as their Savior.
Among those who attended where two women who were recently widowed. Both women lost their husbands the same week. Both were powerfully touched and ministered too by the Holy Spirit.
At the conclusion of the service all who came were given new shoes for they and their children. This gift of shoes is far more meaningful than you may imagine. These people are among the poorest and this provision is a great blessing for them. It’s far more than just a freebie, it’s an act of kindness and care that brightens their reality.
Once again, THANK YOU ALL who’ve made this revival possible. It’s happening because you helped to make it happen.
Our third Women’s Revival meeting took place in Okela, a Village in Upper Egypt about 150 kilometers from Al Minya.
Pastors Habib and Heyam ministered to 150 women who gathered at the Church there. 30 Women received Christ as their Savior. Many needs were met as Habib and Heyam prayed for them individually. It was a true revival service, with worship, prayer, salvation, with great joy in the house.
At the conclusion of the service the women were supplied with new shoes; a great blessing for they and their children.
Thank You! All you who helped to make this happen. You have no idea of the impact these endeavors are making in these small communities throughout Egypt.
The occasion was the celebration of the anniversary of the Kurdish Mahabad Republic, established in Northeastern Iran after the collapse of the Iranian Central Government at the beginning of the Cold War. It was short lived, lasting from January through December 1946. It was the first attempt at Kurdish Nationalism and the establishment of Kurdistan.
The Mahabad Republic was dissolved and its leadership executed when the Iran Central Government reformed and reasserted itself. It was the end of the attempted Republic but not the Kurdish dream for Kurdistan.
Pastors Layth and Ilham Ibrahim were invited to the ceremony organized by the Foundation of Kurdistan Flag Protection. The Celebration was attended by the Governor of Duhok Governorate and a number of prominent members of the Kurdistan Regional Government, the KDP, and the Kurdistan Woman’s Union.
The Ibrahim’s received two plaques in appreciation for their efforts and those of Praise Chapel for services and humanitarian efforts rendered over the years in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq.
One Award is from the Governor’s Office, presented by the Governor himself.
The other is from the Foundation Of Kurdistan Flag Protection, it reads;
A Discretionary gift for the Honorable Pastor Layth W. Ibrahim. In appreciation for your help and Continuous work in all areas: Especially your love for the Homeland and Humanity. We desire people like you, to be always prominent and high, like the Flag of Kurdistan.
