We are Egyptain Coptic Orthodox Christians seeking to build our own church in Fayetteville, North Carolina. For years, we have been renting different churches to hold a Saturday church service every couple weeks, since the closest Arabic Coptic Orthodox church is in Raleigh, North Carolina. Our church family believes it is time to settle down in our own church, if God is willing, or as we say "inshallah" in Arabic. Over the years, our church has grown as new Egyptians arrive to America to escape religious prosecution, to freely practice the religion of Christianity. With the generosity of our Lord through our church members, we have been blessed to purchase a property for our future church and we are in the process of renovating it. With renovation comes great expenses, so we are seeking the help of our fellow community to donate to our church. We have come a long ways with the property, which was in questionable condition at the time of purchase. The property was left in a hoarding home condition when we purchased it, with graffiti and broken glass on the floor, along with the clutter and trash of the previous tenants. We have been able to clear out the trash and replace the windows, but there is still a lot to be done. After Hurricane Matthew hit Fayetteville, the trees on the property have begun to lean on the house, so we are seeking money to help with the expenses to remove these crucial trees, as well as assistance to complete our temporary church, a trailer bulding, in which we need to connect electricity and plumbing. Thank you for your generosity.

God Bless you
