 Dear Friend in the Messiah,
 Shalom and warmest greetings to you. Thank you very much for your faithful support by your prayers and financial giving. It is a privilege for me to write you a letter about the work of the Beth-El. Thank you to be a co-laborers and partners together.
 One unknown author said, “For the days are dark and the work is great, and the time is slipping away, so whatever we think of doing for God we had better do it today.” I believe that Jesus is coming very soon. Maybe for us it is the last opportunity to share the good news to the people around. I believe, the best blessing that we can give to the people is to let them know about
Jesus as a Redeemer and only the way to be saved because without Jesus, there is no salvation.
In the month of July God blessed us to witness to more than 1000 people in Ohio,
Minnesota and Pennsylvania. In this letter I will share about previous outreaches.
 In Portland, OR within a couple of hours we shared Gospel in Downtown- Pioneer Square area. In the beginning we met 2 Arab Muslims. They were interested to hear about Jesus as a Savior and Lord. When I offered to them Holy Scriptures only one person accepted. After that I chose to do air preaching by standing across a big train station and spread the Word. Portland is very aggressive and ungodly city, but this time there were not any accidents. Just a couple persons were very angry at me. There was a feminist lesbian group of women with t-shirts sign: “Trust in the woman”. I tried to witness to one lady from the group, but she did not want to listen. At the end I said to her that we need trust in the God only.
In Minneapolis, MN we witnessed to a very large group of people who participated on “Golden ladies” and gay parade festivals. There were hundreds. We did not expect that on that day the gay event was scheduled. God tremendously blessed us. Gay people tried to physically abuse us, poured water on us, provoked by taking off some clothe to become naked, screaming, and saying bad words. But our message was that God loves them as souls, and commands to repent. Some people stopped and asked questions about a way of the Salvation. We have a professional 30 minutes video of this evangelism. Visit our YouTube and watch. We also had an opportunity to witness to hundreds of people who attended a Broadway show “Wicked”.  
In Sacramento CA, within 2 days, we were witnessing to people in Old Sacramento Music festival. We met lot of people. Some were open, some were even angry and aggressive.
One person after witness told me that he can’t come to the Lord because he is cheating his wife. I told him that God has enough grace and mercy to help him, but he needs to repent. Another 2 young men, who were under drugs, stopped, and accepted Holy Scriptures. Hope that they’ll read the Word. A young lady also got NT. Lot of people were complaining on me. I remember that when I publicly started to preach across a restaurant, some people came to me. They told me that I am saying in my message that Jesus is only the way to be saved. They mentioned that some Muslims, Buddhist and other people are hearing me and it’s offending them. I replied that’s I am proclaiming the only the way to be saved in Christ Jesus so people could know this. And I am praying that they could start to think, because God loves them and wants that they hear this Wonderful News.
On Independence Day, my wife Tatiana, my son Daniel and I went to an outlet stores park area in Aurora OH. We met several Muslim families who accepted Gospel of John in Arabic and other literature. A Chinese lady got NT. A woman from England received NT as well. We witnessed to couple families from India. An Armenian family who spoke Russian, after I tried to share Gospel with them, told me that they don’t need it, because they already are Christians. They also told me that Armenians were first Christians on the Earth. When I disagreed with them and said that the first Christians were Jews, they did not want to continue talk with me.
Thank you for your faithfulness and partnership. Thank you for your prayers for my family. Please continue pray for my son Daniel. There is not changes in his mental illness condition yet.
Pray for Israel and for the peace of Yerushalaim (Psalm 122:6). Recently we remembered 9 Av which is the most tragic date in history of Jewish people.
