Reverend and Dear Father Kleczewski and Parishioners and Friends:

We want to acknowledge gratefully our contribution for the relief of the Christian refugees in Iraq.

Your gift of $2,891.00 received in check # 25439, dated 9/4/14 is a precious manifestation of charitable and empathetic concern for our sisters and brothers who have been forced to leave their homes and all their possession, trekking through wilderness under the burning sun into an uncertain future—all because of their allegiance to our Lord Jesus Christ.

It has been deposited to our diocesan account for transmittal overseas.

We have seen the plight of mothers and infants and children, of the elderly, lacking food, water and shelter. These are blessings we take so much for granted.

As we open our hearts to them in their need, we pray that the Lord will sustain them in their trust in him and that they will realize they are not forsaken, nor forgotten.

May we preserve in using the weapon of prayer for their protection and well being, and may the Lord give us his wisdom and strength to know how we may continue to assist them, and then to do it.

The one who said “if you give a cup of cold water to someone because he belongs to Christ, you will surely not lack your reward” (Mt 10:42) will most assuredly bless—as only he can—all who contribute aid to his faithful. May His blessing be yours!

With gratitude for this manifestation of your faith and love, I Am

Sincerely yours in Christ,

Bishop Yousif Habash
