Where in Africa is the Indian Church involved in?
Vain existence can never exist, for "unless the LORD builds the house, the builders labor in vain." (Psalm 127)

If the faith is unchanged and rock solid, then the gates of Hades never prevailed in the end.

Mina,

Primarily South Africa and some small congregations I think in Kenya.  It is all for our people in the diaspora, no mission work yet(though I hope we do something soon).

Your Coptic bishop in South Africa has been a great pillar of support for our communiy, His Grace was instrumental in encouraging our people to start a parish and has visited often. There were some pictures on the Coptic South Africa diocesan site.

Yes, I heard that HG Bishop Antonios Markos prayed the first liturgy in the new Indian Orthodox church in South Africa.

Congratulations on your new bishop.  Axios!

God bless.
