We have, once again through your generosity, passed a major milestone at Nasarean. To date, we have now distributed more than $530,000 to help our persecuted brethren! This astounding figure is due to all those who have donated, both large and small amounts, and, in a special way, to all those who so generously donate on a regular basis. Thank you so much - and may God bless you! This very week, we sent our largest donation so far to Iraq, to help 7 family businesses. We will have more news and pictures soon, but the businesses include a female-run family restaurant, two farms, a repair shop, and a street vendor business. More than 40 people will have a future and we continue to help Christians stay in their own countries with dignity and hope. In two weeks Fr. Ben will be in Lebanon to look at some of the businesses there, and to see what we can do in the future. Thank you for your support and your prayers!
