Congratulations. As mabsoota said I was received into the Coptic Church the same day as you. Glory to God forever.

It would be great if you could tell us a bit about your journey (only if you feel comfortable), especially from the children's perspective :)

yes, please do, i'll get a cup of tea and sit down and listen!
and if anyone else wants to tell theirs, that's great too.

one day my wise (but not Christian) boss said 'i think you should visit the coptic church, you will like it'.
3 years later, i was a member  :)
