Dear Friend in
the Lord Yeshua the Messiah,
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.
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.
