Families of the Beheaded Christians

$41,576 of $120,000 goal

Raised by 296 people in 36 months
On 2/15/2015; 21 Christian Egyptians were beheaded by ISIS.  The men traveled to Libya for hopes to have jobs to provide for themselves and their families back in Egypt. They were kidnapped in Libya and later murdered for their faith.

The nation of Egypt is mourning their loss. Please help raise money for their family members. 100% of the funds raised (less the fees GoFundMe charges) will be donated to the direct families that lost their loved ones to help them with their lives' expenses especially after the loss of the men that helped provide for their homes.

Specific ministries and individuals in Egypt have been directly contacted and it's confirmed that they are directly connected to those families and we will assure that 100% of  those funds will be provided to those families that lost their loved ones.

**For those who want to donate directly to a non-profit, you can do so by sending a check to a trusted Christian ministry that agreed to handle the checks and make sure they are directly handed to those families. 
Make checks payable to: "Roads of Success" and
Mail to: "Johnny Youssef, 4627 Rosewood Ave, Los Angeles LA 90004"**

**For all those who are skeptical, I understand. I am 100% confident of the church/ministries that the money will be handed to for disbursement. I will personally make sure 100% of it will go to those families that are directly related to the victims. I plan to follow up with all donors with an update once the money is sent; and if there is a proof I can provide at the time, I will. If the families feel safe and comfortable to take and share photos with those who will provide them the finances,  we will. If I have to, I will personally fly out there myself.**

Our thoughts and prayers are with the families and the mourning church in Egypt.

Dear Donors!

WE did it!!! We just came back from Egypt after successfully meeting with the families of the beheaded Christians, praying and encouraging them, and handing them the money! Thank you so much for your partnership. What was done was way beyond what I expected! I will be posting a blog post with photos and more details on my website tomorrow at johnnyyou.com and I will send you a link to it once it's up.

On behalf of the families, Thank you! They wanted me to let you know how grateful they are for your offering and for knowing that there are people out there that cared enough to do what you did! I wish each of you were there to see the look on their faces when they were ministered to and handed the money.

Blessings,
Johnny

Dear supporters,

GoFundMe informed me that the only way to end the campaign is to delete it all together and that the funds can be withdrawn while the campaign is still active. So, I am keeping the campaign active for communications sake and because I have had couple of people still wanting to donate. But, I did want to update you that the current amount is getting transferred and it will soon arrive in Egypt through a non-profit. We will send you updates with photos in October. If I have to end the campaign for any reason, all updates will go through Johnnyyou.com. If you still want to give more, it's not too late as the campaign will remain active.

Dear Friends!

This marks the LAST week for final donations before we end the campaign! If you or someone you know are interested in giving before it ends, please do so by Wednesday 9/16 11:59pm.

Me and couple of other friends have volunteered to fly out in October to personally give the money and minister to the families of the victims! Words can't describe how this money will change lives!

We will also be visiting an orphanage and a one of the poorest areas in Egypt to serve.

We will post updates and photos when it is safe and possible. If you want detailed updates with extended selections of photos and videos of the trip, please subscribe to johnnyyou.com where I will be posting everything on it.

Thank you so much for making this possible!

I love this way of "contributing to the needs of the Saints". Showing the world that the love we have for one another is more powerful than their Satanic hatred for Jesus.

I think what you're doing is incredible. God has truly blessed you with a beautiful heart. God bless you always. You may be one person, but with God at your side, you could change the world one person at a time. In your case, 21 families at a time. :)

God Bless you. The Lord Jesus will reward them greatly in heaven according to His word and our Lord Jesus is faithful and true to His promises. They will have crowns and treasures in heaven. May the Lord bless you and keep you. In Jesus name. Amen.
