Demonstrating faith by works (you did!)

Beloved Readers,

BIG THANKS to all of you who made a gift to the Decani Monastery Relief Fund over the past month! 

On June 15, I posted an appeal on the Ortho Thought for the Day regarding the growing food shortage crisis in Kosovo.  I asked if we could band together to reach a goal of raising $10,000 by July 15 to help the faithful there.  I am happy to report to you that we came very close--$9,000 was received specifically for this purpose.  Glory to God for the Holy Spirit’s work through you, dear brethren!  Your loving gifts will continue to sustain many in the weeks ahead.    

The fathers of the Decani Monastery, the faithful of Kosovo and all the monastics in the region thank you with very grateful hearts!  They ask God to bless you for the love and generosity you’ve shown.

Prayers offered at the Decani Monastery 

Thank you, dear readers, thank you very much!  May our loving Lord multiply this offering for the greatest good. 

Love in Christ,
Presbytera Candace
Board Member
