The church added: The initiative’s youth went to Zawyat Sultan village, east of the Nile, in the Minya Center, to implement an entertainment day that brought together the children of the Church’s Nursery and the Qur’an Memorization Center in the village, with the participation of the Agyal Foundation for development and the Sports development Center in New Minya, as the supervisors of the children exchanged their daily problems and anecdotes and how to deal with them. The two are of the similarity of children in almost all their characteristics at that age and that the existence of any difference between them is nothing but individual differences between children and some of them and has nothing to do with religion.
And the Church continued: In coordination with the Berjaya Youth Center in Minya, the youth implemented a sports day, which targeted the participation of middle school students, as they practiced together various group games, and at the end of the day, each group contributed what they learned from the activities.
