Harpur Memorial Nursing School Graduates Its First Class!

This Saturday, the 29th of June 2019, we were so proud to celebrate the graduation of 10 new nurses from our Nursing School in Menouf! This is the first class to graduate from the Harpur Memorial Nursing School. We are so proud of the hard work these nurses have put in over the last 2 years, and it was a joy to celebrate them. All 10 nurses will now begin working full time in Harpur Hospital, Menouf. And because of their hard work, they now have a stable job and a bright future!

So many people are a part of this amazing programme, and we want to thank them for their hard work and dedication to the Nursing School. We were especially excited to have Mrs. Becki Thompson, the founder of the nursing school, with us for the graduation. Nurse Rachel and Nurse Lindsay have spent many hours mentoring and instructing our students, and we are very thankful to them. We also want to thank Phibi Isaac (Translator and Administrative Assistant), Dr. Samir Rizkalla (the Director of Harpur Hospital), and Bishop Mouneer. Without their guidance and support of all of these people, this programme would not be what it is today.

The beautiful graduation ceremony honoured our graduates, but most importantly gave honour and thanks to God for His provision and support of our students and staff. We heard a reading from Matthew 25:35-40, and were blessed with a few speeches which focussed on servant leadership and glorifying God through our service and vocations.  The graduates each received a Harpur Memorial Nursing School Pin, a tradition in nursing schools throughout the world, to signify their achievement which they will wear proudly as graduates and ambassadors of the program. We are so proud we are of our class valedictorian, Heba Mouneer, and our student-elected speaker, Martha Adel! But we are proud of all 10 of our graduates, and we know God will use them to bless many people in the years to come.

Please pray for these 10 women as they begin their service as nurses. Pray also for the  Harpur Memorial Nursing School staff as they continue to build this wonderful programme. 


Rev. David Ebenezer Ordained in St. Mark’s Church, Menouf

Ordination of Rev. David Ebenezer

St. Mark’s Church, Menouf

4:00 PM, 9 December 2018

On the 9th of December, it was our joy to ordain Rev David Ebenezer to the Sacred Order of Priesthood within the Worldwide Anglican Communion. Rev Ebenezer, his wife Elizabeth, and their two children moved to Menouf 4 months ago, and have been faithfully serving the congregation there ever since. We were so excited to see Rev. David be officially confirmed in this role.

Rev. David brings such depth and experience to this role, having pastored and studied in multiple countries and in many positions. He also has specific education for serving the healthcare community in a pastoral way—what a wonderful fit to serve our community in Menouf, which is largely made up of those serving in Harpur Memorial Hospital! Rev. David is compassionate, knowledgeable, and passionate, and we know he will make a wonderful impact as he serves the Lord in Menouf.

Please prayer for Rev. David (known to many as “Eby”) and his family. Pray that the Lord would bless them in their ministry, strengthen them in their relationship with the Lord, and use them to build up of the Church of Christ through their service.

Rishop Mouneer, Bishop Samy, Canon Hany, and Rev Kerry pray for Rev David
