On Sunday 8 September, Bishop Mouneer installed Rev. Dr. Jos Strengholt as Area Dean for East Cairo. Rev. Jos and his wife Adrienne have lived in Egypt for many years, and serve at St Michael and All Angels Heliopolis. During the same service, Rev. Adel Shokralla was licensed to work as a priest at St Michael’s and there were also some confirmations of new members of the church.
Bishop Mouneer shared about the example of Joshua and Caleb in Numbers 13, who didn’t listen to fear but trusted in the Lord. In Egypt, and in the Middle East at this time there is a spirit of fear. However, the Church is called to trust in God and place ourselves in His hands.
