Tragedy in NJ - Coptic Family slaughtered
« on: January 15, 2005, 02:29:31 AM »
A Coptic American Family was slaughtered in their home in Jew Jersey. Pray for the departed souls that the Lord may accept them in his Kingdom, for their family who will have unanswered questions about this tragedy so that the Lord may strengthen their faith and give them peace, and for everyone who knew the family.

The link for the news report on the tragedy is below:

In that day there will be an altar to the LORD in the heart of Egypt, and a monument to the LORD at its border. (Isaiah 19:19)

Lord, have mercy.
