—Association ’s philosophy.

Dear Friend:

As we approach the holiday season,we are reminded of the many blessings God has bountifully

bestowed upon us.He has surrounded us with loving families,blessed churches,and great

friends.More importantly,during this Christmas season,we thank Him for the priceless gift of

His Son.

As we count our blessings,now is also the time to extend these same blessings to our brothers

and sisters in need.During the year 2001,God has used the Egyptians Relief Association (ERA)

to support hundreds of needy families in Egypt,transforming both their physical and spiritual

lives.We truly thank you for your love and generous contributions to make this possible.

According to our representatives in Egypt,your contributions complement their spiritual

message,thereby strengthening our brothers ’and sisters ’faith while providing them with the

means to achieve independence and security for the future.

Today,we ask for your same support to enable the Association to fund more projects.Our

ultimate goal is never to turn down a needy family with a promising small-scale project that will

provide for its needs.Working together under God ’s mighty hand we can make a difference and

empower even more of Egypt ’s poor Copts.

Please take a moment to mail your tax-deductible contributions today in the enclosed self-

addressed envelope.Please indicate your e-mail address on the envelope or on your check to

enhance our ability to reach you in the future .Thank you for your generous support.

TODAY

NEEDY CHRISTIANS IN EGYPT ARE KNOCKING ON YOUR DOOR

PLEASE DO NOT SAY NO !!!!!

Sincerely Yours,

Nadia Tadros
