Missionary Trip from the Coptic Orthodox Diocese of Los Angeles and from Tronto,Canda.

On December 21, 2014, we welcomed our missionary brothers and sisters from accompanied by Fr. Mauritius Mikhail and Fr. Abraam Ayoub. And on December 22, 2014, we also welcomed our brothers and sisters from Toronto, Canada accompanied by Fr. Kyrillos Fakhouri. We greeted them and celebrated the graduation of 15 Bolivian youths; 12 graduating from high school and 3 graduating from college. Both missionary groups stayed with us for one week and blessed us with their services in the Cathedral of Santa Cruz and the nearby villages. They joined us in celebrating the feast of the nativity by preparing and presenting skits, games, and gifts for the children of the churches of St. George in Santa Cruz, St. Verena in Santa Rosa, St. Philopateer and Saint Mihrail in Montero, Archangel Michael in Paquio, and St. Mary and St. Joseph in Valle Sanchez. The missionaries also shared the love of Christ through visitations for members of the congregation, feeding the homeless, and spending time with the orphans. In addition, we were graced with their presence for the baptism of 50 persons from Santa Rosa at the Cathedral in Santa Cruz. Their trip concluded with a group outing to Mariposario and a goodbye party at the Cathedral. We felt the love as one body of Christ with their presence among us and pray that God continues to bless them.
