 Dear Friend in the Lord Yeshua the Messiah,

 Warmest greetings to you in Emmanuel’s Precious and Exalted name! (Psalm 57:5 and 11). I pray that you are well and that this letter will be a great blessing to you. I thank God for each friend who is sacrificially giving and remembering this work of the Lord in their prayers. I thank God for your fellowship in the Gospel, and I praise Him for your help in showing the Jews and non-Jews the love of the Messiah. We know our service of love to Him among the Jewish People is pleasing to the Lord. (Mark 14:6c; Genesis 12:3), and we know that our labor is not  in vain in the Lord hope to continue with you and some new brothers and sisters  to partnering and have fellowship together also in this New, 2019 Year.

 We are in the last days before the Lord’s return. We know this from the signs of the times. The Lord Jesus is preparing the Jew for the time when He shall be revealed at His Second Coming to this people and out from the Jews to the Nations. It is the privilege of each believer on the Lord Jesus the Messiah to now have a vital part in supporting the faithful sowing of the Word of God among this people. Israel shall come to know the Lord Yeshua the Messiah through the faithful sowing of His Word. This sowing of the Word of God among the Jews with our prayers is linked to the prophecy: “But ye shall be named the priests of the Lord: men shall call you ministers of our God” (Isaiah 61:6a). Israel shall minister the Messiah to the Nations, showing Christ and his glory to the Gentiles. (Isaiah 59:20-60:3; 66:19).


 I want to thank you for all encouragements from you and for standing with me to bring the Gospel to the lost sheep of the house of Israel and for everyone. In the last month, December, we were blessed to witness to more than 200 people. Most of them we met in Philadelphia, PA. God willing, I am going to write more about the trip in my next prayer letter. 

In Minneapolis MN, where there is a very strong homosexual community, we had an opportunity spread the Word of God. I usually visit this place few times in a year for a one day outreach. God blessed us and many people in Downtown heard about God’s love, grace and mercy. When we started to preach about gay sin, aggression by them increased tremendously. We distributed Holy Scriptures and other Christian literature in different languages. Two men from India accepted NT’s, and a Muslim a Gospel of John in Arabic.


In Riverside, CA with my Romanian brother N., we went to a small downtown area. Our goal was to share Wonderful News and distribute Bibles. There, in a very small place, we met people from Iraq, India, and Spanish speaking Americans. It was blessed to share with them about Lord Jesus and give Scriptures. We also met two Satanist, and they also heard the Name of Lord of Lords and King of Kings. My friend N. mostly was witnessing to homeless people. I remember, when a homeless person met us, he said that he knows us. When I asked how he knows, the man responded that we are people from heaven! May Lord bless all of us always be a good example to others.

   We continue work in Cleveland streets, our home base. It’s always very hard to witness to Jewish people, especially in Cleveland Ohio. Just recently, I was blessed to witness to more than 10 Jewish people publicly. I met them in a building apartments, when I visited one of our Congregation member. They were playing cards and some other games. I started speak and share Gospel. In the beginning they were shocked, and complaining, but eventually almost all of them opened their hearts to accept Bibles. Praise God! Russian speaking Jewish people, who did not heard about Jesus as a Jewish Messiah, Lord and Savior, are opened more to hear and read Word of God!  Please continue pray for us and the ministry. It’s still a lot of work which should be done in Cleveland among Russian speaking people.

 Please pray for Bethel Messianic Ministry and my family, especially for my son Daniel, who is suffering a lot.
