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 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.
Thank you very much for your respond of our needs in
finances to support the Ministry. May Lord richly bless you.
As I mentioned, because of the quarantine all my meetings
were cancelled, and our support dramatically dropped down.
We still in the ministry, and mainly do the work in
Cleveland area now. Please continue to pray for us in our
In this letter we will continue share testimonies from
In PA, King of Prussia Mall, we met 8 Israelites. Most of
them, after sharing Gospel, accepted NT’s in
Hebrew. It was very pleased to see that Jewish people from
Israel more and more open to hear Good News about Yeshua The Messiah
of Israel, and our Lord and Savior. In the same Mall we also
met two Russian speaking Muslims. One was from Kazakhstan,
and other from Azerbaijan. Both of them were open to have a
conversation, and accepted NT’s. Another Muslim person from
India rejected to have NT, but took an App card with free
Bible download. In Philadelphia, at Russian Food Market
“Bell’s” we met people from Portugal, Greece, Iraq, Morocco,
Turkey, China, Pakistan, India, and many Russian speaking
Jews. We witnessed and distributed Christian literature in
their native languages of this people. We also notified
again, that Russian speaking people were open more than
before to hear Gospel about Lord Yeshua.
In State of Tennessee, in Chattanooga, God blessed us with
one day of Evangelism. With my friend from a local Church we
went to Walnut Bridge area. Even in this conservative city,
we met lot of unbelievers. We always rejoice when we remind
them about God’s love and way of salvation, offer Bibles and
pray for them.
My Uber driver also was Jewish person. I was glad that God
touched his heart during our trip, and he accepted NT. We
also use “Window Ministry” while we are on the quarantine.
When we need pick up food, or mail in Post Office, or buy in
Grocery Stores, we share Gospel with people we met. I always
carry with me literature in different languages and NT’s.
In Cleveland I
met few Muslims. One accepted NT in Arabic and another only
brochures in Arabic. We also use more teachings on Youtube
to reach Russian speaking people. In April on Muslim and one
non-Muslim persons accepted Lord Jesus Christ through
YouTube opportunity, and another told me that after watching
our channel he was touched to start read Bible. Praise and
Glory only to God! This is a great privilege to all of us to
be a part of God’s great work on Earth to proclaim Glory of
our Lord Jesus the Messiah, and His love to all people.
Thank you for your faithfulness and partnership. Thank you
for your prayers. Please continue to pray for my family and
my health. Please pray for our Congregation that we’ll be
able to grow spiritually in the Lord. Please pray to God
that we’ll have enough to continue and operate as a
ministry. We need solid financial support.
