Congratulations, George!

My family and I were so honored to celebrate with George Zakhary today as he became a United States citizen! And what makes this story especially near and dear to my heart is that my mom’s father, who was a high court judge in Cairo, began the Helwan Boys Orphanage where George grew up

The Helwan Boys Orphanage, started by my grandfather, is home to 40 young and teenage boys. Throughout the history of the home several of the boys have become effective church leaders

The local news station ran a great story featuring George that you can view here –
