COLLEYVILLE, TX. September 14, 2005 -- The Coptic Orthodox Diocese of the Southern United States would like to thank everyone for their love, generosity, help, concern, and most importantly, prayers for our fellow brethren in New Orleans.

We are thankful to God that 4 of the 5 families have been accounted for. We are fervently praying for the remaining 1 family.

Several attempts have been made to check on the condition of the Church but unfortunately, no one has been able to get through since that district is still flooded and closed.

We ask for your continual prayers during this time of need.

“Oh, how great is Your goodness,
Which You have laid up for those who fear You,
Which You have prepared for those who trust in You
In the presence of the sons of men!” (Ps 31:19)
