Sharing Wisdom with the Young

Ezbit el Nakhl Village, Egypt

A 15-year-old girl, Rahma, came to me three months ago because she was in love with a boy who had different beliefs. No one knew about her relationship and she was questioning whether it was right to love a boy with different beliefs. She said that both she and the boy were willing to change their beliefs to be with each other. Rahma asked me what she should do.


We discussed the issue and I told her that it was immature to just change your beliefs because you love someone. I explained that she should be fully convinced of what she believes in and not just change her beliefs for the sake of another. She should instead be fully convinced in new beliefs if she is going to change them. In the beginning, she wasn’t convinced of my words, but we talked about it for three months. She then came to me and said that she was starting to take real steps to terminate her relationship with the boy. She changed her telephone number and started to fill her spare time with work and crafts.

We care about health! A dentist treated more than 100 villagers, including ladies, men, and children. The dentist made a difference in all the lives but especially in Om Mohraael’s life. She is a lady who suffered in pain from a molar that needed to be removed. She wasn’t able to go to the dentist due to financial issues, so she took painkillers for a long time without being checked by a dentist. Om Mohraael kept suffering from pain until she heard about this dental doctor of ours. Then, she came to be checked by the dentist, and finally had her molar removed and is no longer in pain.
