Friends: I am determined to help our Catholic Christian friends in Jerusalem. There are several families Janet and I know personally and they need help.

The Roman Catholic family at the right is Jeries Majlaton, his wife and three great kids–one of the families we help. Janet and I are long-term friends. Jeries works for the Franciscans inside the Holy Sepulchre and his kids attend the local Catholic school.  There are others too that are currently unemployed and we will distribute the money as needed.

When our groups are in Israel we take up collections for these multiple families but since we are not able to go now for months, we want to continue to collect and donate the assistance. PLEASE HELP!

Already some people have sent me checks to pass the cash on to the Christian families. If you can help send me a check made out to “Steve Ray” 3588 Plymouth Road, #277, Ann Arbor MI 48105-2603.  I will deposit the check in my account and send them the money by Western Union.

Or you can send it as a donation to my payal account and I will make sure they get EVERY penny that you send (except PayPal's 1-2%). Hopefully we can help our brothers and sisters in Christ already suffering, but now more so because of the virus, being unemployed and the lack of pilgrims.

I want to send you a $25 donation for the families in Jerusalem through my account, but I can't figure out how to do that. Can you send me a link, or instructions?

Steve and Janet. Thanks for all you do. Check from me and Viviane is on the way.,

STEVE RAY HERE: Thanks so much. It is going to three people at this time. Jeries and his family, Abdel and his wife and two daughters who work for the Patriarch of Jerusalem and a small gift to Fr. Sinisa who is a humble and hardworking priest at the Holy Sepulchre.

Hi Steve — I just finished reading your excellent book “The Faith for Beginners”. I’m very impressed with your research and documentation. I didn’t buy it because I saw myself as a “Beginner,” but rather because I wanted to have a better grasp of the creeds. I learned so much, not only about the creeds but also about the churches development. Just wanted to get a word of appreciation out to you. — Rick Evans
