Lessons of Love and Forgiveness

Ezbit el Nakhl Village, Egypt


Children of Ezbit el Nakhl​​


Mohraiel is eight years old and Mariana is six years old. They are both from Ezbit el Nakhl and regularly come with their mother to the center for education lessons. While we were teaching lessons on timeliness, patience, follow-through and good decision-making, the girls’ mother made a comment. The mother said that two years ago her daughters were making wrong decisions and hitting each other over silly games. The mother said that since they have been attending the lessons, they are now living a good life and have learned how to love each other.


Women of Ezbit el Nakhl


We presented lessons on forgiveness and, while I was talking, I looked at the mom of Karam and saw her crying. After I finished the lesson, I sat with her as she told me how she is sad and broken over her sister-in-law. The sister-in-law hits and dishonors her in the street. The mom has had such anger towards her sister-in-law but said that from now on, she is going to love and forgive her. She told me that she feels peaceful and joyful because she has chosen forgiveness.
