With the grace of God and the prayers of His Grace Bishop Youssef, fifty Coptic Orthodox believers from Saint Verena Coptic Orthodox Church in Santa Rosa, Bolivia were baptized On December 28th, 2014. His Grace Bishop Youssef was accompanied by Fr. Kyrollos from Toronto, Canada, Fr. Mauritious and Fr. Abraam from the dioceses of Los Angeles, United States, and the fathers of Bolivia. The heavens rejoiced with the expansion of the Body of Christ as the baptism took place in the morning of the divine liturgy in Santa Cruz, Bolivia. May the Lord continue to bless the service for the glory of His Holy name. The word of the Lord shall grow, multiply, be mighty, and be confirmed in the Holy Church of God Amen.
