Isis and Osiris
It has been known that Osiris was an Egyptian pharaoh who reigned over Egypt in the very early beginnings. Osiris married his sister Isis and they ruled together. Osiris Helped people learn ow to grow crops along the Nile river. They became really loved and popular.
Seth on the other hand was Isis and Osiris' brother and he was really cruel and jelous of Osiris. Seth married his sister Nephthys. But with the light came darkness. Seth was smart and hade a plan to kill Osiris. Seth had with him his evil companion. They came up with a plan and they prepared him a coffin. Isis was full of wisdom and magic and kept one eye closed one her love.
Osiris had a banquet and he invited 72 conspiritors, with the finest banquet to ever be held In all of Egypt. When Osiris was very happy and joyful, Seth Brought the coffin and asked Osiris to try it. Osiris went inside the coffin to try it. Seth and his evil partners closed the lid of the coffin and nailed nailed it with nobody around.
He went to the Nile with his wicked and evil partners and threw him in. The coffin smashed on a tree on land, and the tree became beautiful as the body of Osiris touched it. Later the tree grew so much that all the coffin was embedded in the tree.
In another place, it was ruled by King Malcander and Queen Artarte. This place was Byblos. One day they noticed the tree and ordered it cut down and made in to a fine royal pillar. When Isis heard about her love she was extremely shocked and sad. She decided she would set off and find him and Seth took the throne. She traveled a lot until she made it to that city.
There, she met some maidens and taught them how to braid there hair. When they were serving the Queen Astarte and the Queen saw them she was very impressed that she called for Isis. Not knowing that the woman Artarte had called forth was the Divine Goddess Isis She asked for the caring of her son Dictys. Isis consened but after a while she caught sight of the pillar.
In time Isis noticed that the great pillar held the body of her beloved love. She had also become fond with the son of Artarte, Dictys. so one night she wanted to make him immortal. With her spell she transformed into a swallow and sung her magic words. The Queen Artarte was spying on her and in fear interupted the spell in fear at the sight of her son in flames. The spell was broken. When the Queen noticed that she begged the Goddess for forgivness and asked if there is anything she could do. Isis asked for the pillar and her request as granted. Osiris rejoined Isis at home and she was forced to hide him
Unfortunately Seth got really mad when he discovered the body and in rage cut it up in 14 pieces and threw it down the Nile. Once more Isis set of in search of her love along with her sister Nephtys and her nephew Anubis. Whenever they found a piece of the body, the place became holy ground. Once Isis gathered all the pieces she magically re-made Osiris.
Even though he was dead, she was also able to convince a child with him: The sky God Horus. When young Horus grew Osiris visited him from the spirit world and taught him how to fight in preparation in defeating seth and retaking the rightful throne. Isis and Osiris were united, Seth was defeated than banned and Horus remained the King of Egypt.

These include really ancient biblical texts from our fathers of the church. After 1500 years in a community these irreplacble treasures are in real danger.

Deir Anba Pishoy
This beautiful monastery has five
churches. The main church after saint
Pishoy. The monastery was built to take
care of monks against attacks from the
barbarians. This place has a well known
as the Well of Martyrs. Copitc tradition

Elders of Shiheet. and threw their bodies
inside before the christian buried them in the monastery of saint Macarius.

St. Mena the Martyr
After the Pentecost,the disciples went and preached to the people about Jesus Christ.
Not all the people accepted there teaching and there was lots of people that did not believe Jesus died on the cross and rose from the dead and ascended to heaven.They were angry until the point they killed the believers.The people that stands up for there faith and get killed they are called martyrs.
Ophomia wanted a baby very badly. She made a promise that she will give the baby to the lord and not only to her self. When she was leaving the icon of St.Mary she herd from the icon Amen. After a long time they got a baby, they called him Mina(they took the a in Amen and put it at the back and it spelled Mena). Mena when he grew up, he liked hymns, praises and really liked to read the bible. Mena would always have respect for the church and he learned the teaching of Jesus christ in the church.
When Mena grew up a bit more he joined the army. Jesus blessed him and he won every war he did. He defended his country. Mena never made fun of some body or laghed at him.Mena would tell teachings about Jesus. Mena loved Jesus so much that he lefted the army gave everything he owned to the poor and went to the desert and read the bible day and night. One day when he was praying
He saw three crowns in the sky and an angle said if you go and talk about Jesus you will get these three crowns so he went to the city immediately. Mena said he is a christian and he got thrown in fire and got killed and he was call Saint Mena because he was a martyr.
Coral Reefs In Hurghada
A polyp coral reef is a small hard or soft coral. Hard coral is a large group and it's a skeleton of limeston. The algae are able to consume the carbon acid, which is produced as a wast product by the coral. If it were not consumed then the acid would destroy the limestone structure of the reef. The algae are small plants and like most plants. Soft coral is soft and bendable it is like a tree and the wood grows inside of it. A good way to imagine a coral reef is to think of it as a city or community, with the buildings made of coral,in this sense, a coral reef is like a metropolis under the sea.There the water is 20 C.The red sea is amazing it will blow your mind. I love it.
