A year has passed but you are still in our hearts and thoughts!
Last Thursday, the 2nd of March, was the Memorial Day for the life of Bishop Ghais Abd Al Malik. He was such a faithful person till the end of his service.
He used to open his preaching in any occasion by; “May these words of my mouth and this meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.” (Psalms 19: 14), asking the Lord to pour of His Spirit as he spoke.
He was born in 1930, was ordained as a deacon in 1961 in the Episcopal/ Anglican Church in Egypt. After he finished his studies, he was ordained as a priest in 1962. He started his ministry as a priest by helping Archdeacon Adeeb Shamas in “Jesus Light of the World Episcopal/Anglican Church” in Old Cairo.He became the main priest to this church after the retirement Archdeacon Adeeb Shamas. He was the first elected bishop in 1984 and served in this position till 2000 then he retired.
We thank our Lord Jesus Christ for all the years that He demonstrated His love through his faithful servant, Bishop Ghais Abd Al Malik. Bishop Ghais was a true blessing and a real model for leadership.
