Faith & Order Commission
World Council of Churches
Cairo, Egypt
June 2008

In June 2008 Sarah Heaner Lancaster travelled to Egypt for the Standing Committee meeting of the Faith & Order Commission of the World Council of Churches.

We stayed at the Coptic Orthodox St. Mark Center. This mosque was right across the street.
Metropolitan Bishoy was our host. Here he receives from Sam Kobia a gift for Pope Shenouda, who was recovering from hip surgery at the time.
Mother Martyria provided us with assistance throughout our stay. Director John Gibaut gives her a gift of thanks.
