Dear Merkel church of Christ Brethren, We want to thank you so very much for the donation you recently made to help members of our congregation. We have experienced some hurricanes before, but Harvey brought on unprecedented flooding for this area. A few of our members experienced some flooding issues, with a couple of families getting considerable damage to their homes. We cannot convey enough how privileged we are to be a part of the Lord’s church and with that privilege the benefit of being associated with benevolent and magnanimous brethren like yourselves. Your generosity was, and is, very much appreciated and will go to good use. If there is any way in which we may ever repay the favor, please do not hesitate to ask. Again, thank you from the depths of our hearts. May God bless you in every good and righteous endeavor.

In Christian love and gratitude,

Saul Blair

preacher for the Garth Road church of Christ
