Dear Friend in the Lord,
 Warmest greetings to you in that Worthy Name of the One who is Exalted!

 Thank you for your gracious giving and prayers for this ministry to our Lord Jesus, as we present the Word of Life to the Jewish and non-Jewish People for their salvation in Him, and the worship of the Lamb. Your fellowship in the Gospel is greatly appreciated. May you know His richest blessing and joy as you honor Him.
Let me remind you about the promise He gives to Israel in Isaiah 30:18 concerning her future salvation: “And therefore will the Lord wait, in order that He may be gracious to you, and therefore He be exalted, so that He may have mercy upon you. Blessed are all they that wait for him”. Israel will know Him and His mercy as a result of our witnesses to these people with our prayers.
Apostle Paul wrote in Romans 10:1. “Brethren, my heart’s desire and prayed to God for Israel is that they might be saved”.  The Apostle Paul writes to every saved Gentile, “For as ye in times past have not believed God, yet have now obtained mercy through their(the Jews) unbelief: even so have these now not believed, that through your mercy they (the Jews) also may obtain mercy.” Paul reminds every believer whom the Lord Jesus has saved from among the Gentiles why he or she is saved, when he writes, “That the Gentiles might glorify God for His mercy. (Romans 15:9a). The same word “mercy” is used by Paul in Romans 15:9 and 11:30 -31. He is showing us in these verses how every saved Gentile is to glorify God in His Will for the mercy he or she has received.
 In the month of June, with God’s help we witnessed to more than 500 people. In Rochester NY, after my service in a church, which was located by a farm, I saw in a field there lot of pasturing sheep. I took my phone to make a video of the lamb as my youngest son Rafael loves the animals very much. Very shortly I saw a teenager walking from the farm toward me. I thought maybe I am not allowed to make videos. When the young man came to me he said that his father saw me and invited to come to the farm and have more videos. I heard an eastern accent which the boy was talking with me. I asked him from which country did they come. He responded that they are Muslims from Iraqi. Also I learned that this farm has lamb for sale and now more than 5 families are there to buy it. In this trip I had a rental car. Usually I carry Bibles in different languages for distribution in my own car. I said to the Lord in my prayer:” Lord, I am so sorry that I don’t have Bibles with me as I have a rental car”. But the Lord encouraged me to open the door of the car. When I opened I saw a box with 8 Arabic Gospel of John and other literature. Lord reminded me that before I started the trip to NY I stopped in our church building to pick up some literature include in Arabic language. I just forgot it, but Lord knew that I would need them. Next couple minutes I met all families there, and all of them were Muslims. I started witness about Lord Jesus and way of Salvation.  All 8 copies of Arabic Gospel of John and other literature was distributed among them. I also met the owner of the farm and he also accepted Gospel, even I had a little hard conversation with him as he believes in many ways of salvation. I was strong by grace of the Lord to witness that we have only one and the way to be saved, and it is only through Lord Jesus the Messiah.   He invited me to enter a special place where they slaughter lambs. I entered, and saw a lamb which was tight and be prepared to be killed. The owner was looking and choosing a knife. I left, and was thinking about our Lord Jesus who is the true Lamb of God, who was crucified for us that we may have an eternal life. I also prayed in my heart for salvation of this Muslims I wonderfully met.
In an airport I met an orthodox Jew. I stopped and started to talk with him. Most times orthodox Jews become very angry at me when I try tell them that Yeshua is the promised Messiah of Israel. This time it was different. The young Jew was open to listen. I saw his eyes and even with some tears. He was open to hear the Wonderful News. Praise God for this. But other old orthodox Jew told me after I witnessed to him that it’s a sin to hear about Yeshua and asked me to leave him.
 At a parking lot in Cleveland area I met a Muslim woman from Libya. I witnessed to her and asked if she has Bible. She said: “No”. I got her mailing address and already sent to her Arabic whole Bible.
In a post office I saw 2 Muslim ladies with balloons signed “Happy Birthday”. I asked Lord to give me a wisdom to find right words to witness. I came to them and said that because some of them have birthday, I also have a gift even for both of them. I got their permission to give them gifts. It was Bibles, and they kindly accepted. Praise God!
