Dear Friend!

Shalom and Warmest greetings to you in The Name of our Lord and Redeemer Jesus-The Messiah! I hope this letter will find you well. Thank you very much for all your help by supporting our Russian Messianic missionary ministries. Your faithful prayers and faithful financial support are much appreciated. May all blessings from the Lord-God of Israel YESHUA will be upon you. Amen!

Psalm 122:6 says: “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee.” 
I love this Psalm very much. This Psalm shows God’s Love to His land and His people-Israel. The Psalm reminds to the Church and believers to remember Israel. Also it is a prophetic, and encourages us to see the future of Israel. Let’s pray together and ask the Lord to help us stay faithful and proclaim His Glory on the Earth.

In the previous months we were blessed by the Lord witnessing to more than to 1000 people in Seattle, Sacramento, Portland and Cleveland.

In Spokane WA, with our sister church, we continued reach people. Recently, we had outreaches in Nursing Homes. We invited professional musicians who are Christians, and they brought beautiful performances. We used this opportunities to share Gospel and distribute Bibles to elder people who needed to be to encourage. We also prayed for some people and had discussions.

In Sacramento CA, not far from their White House, we had an outreach. We also used paint pictures on Biblical scenes, to share and explain Gospel. People stopped and it was a great time to remind them about Lord Jesus and offer Bibles. Few people asked us to pray for them.

In Seattle WA, we went, as always, to a main Downtown area- Westlake Center. When I started preach publicly, an African American man stopped, and asked me to prove that God is real. I answered:” It’s my life and how I was changed”. He said: “It’s proven and enough”. After that he asked pray for him, and accepted NT. While I was preaching, a man who was there, told me:” You better go to a Catholic church and preach to a Catholic priest, because a lot of them are pedophile”. I answered:” We are all are sinners and all need to repent and hear about the way we could be forgiven and saved in Lord Jesus”. The man said that he is a good man and don’t need to repent. But I mentioned to him that everyone needs to repent, pedophile and not pedophile. Overall, the outreach went well, even a lot of people were angry to hear about Truth…

Another testimony I have about a Lyft driver. At night I needed a ride to Hopkins Airport. I saw only one car at my APP around 4 AM. A driver accepted my request, but after 2 minutes cancelled. I thought that maybe there was a mistake, so I requested for the second time. The call was accepted, but after 2 minutes again was cancelled. I understood, that the driver did not want to drive from downtown and get me, because he would not make any profit. But I decided to request Lyft for the third time. Two minutes passed, five, and ten… I saw that the driver was coming… I met the driver. His Name was M. and he was Muslim. I had 15 minutes to talk and asked him, why he cancelled my requests twice, but accepted for the third time. He said, that he cancelled twice because he would not have a profit , but when I requested for the third time, he said himself that if somebody asking help for three times, he can’t to reject it, because  something important is going on. I said:” Yes M. You are right. I have very important Good News for you”. He said: “About what?”  I continued, and said: “About Lord Jesus”. After that the man accepted NT in Arabic.

Thank you for your faithfulness and partnership with us, thank you for your sacrificial giving. Please pray for our missionary ministry and Congregation. Please pray for all the people we met.
