(Worthy News) - The Egyptian Army has finally begun to rebuild the country's churches as per a promise made by President Abdul Fattah al-Sisi almost three years ago.

According to Barnabas Aid, al-Sisis said that it has taken too long to repair and renovate the churches that were damaged during riots by members of the Muslim Brotherhood after Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi was removed from office in 2013.

"This year everything will be fixed," al-Sisis said at St. Marks Church in Cairo last month. "Please accept our apologies for what happened. God willing, by next year there won't be a single church or house that is not restored ....."

In the worst day of violence against the Egyptian church since the 14th century, dozens of Christian institutions, homes, businesses and churches were damaged during Muslim riots on Aug. 14, 2013.
