 Dear Friend in Lord Yeshua!

 Shalom and warmest greetings to you. Thank you very much for your prayers and faithful support of this work to reach to the Jew first (Romans 1:16) and in the same, equal way all lost people for The Messiah. Because everyone needs Lord Jesus who is only the way to be saved, both for the Jews and none Jews.

We read in Deuteronomy 6:10, 12: “So it shall be, when the Lord your God brings you into the land of which He swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give you large and beautiful cities which you did not build.”; “then beware, lest you forget the Lord who brought you out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage.” It seems to me, that the Lord wanted to teach Israelites many things from the His Word. One of them is to have a thankful heart. It happens very often, that in our everyday life we do not count our blessings but have bitterness inside from different problems. I am praying for you and for me that we will not miss thankfulness to the Lord for everything He is doing in our lives. In the time of Thanksgiving, I am grateful, that I have you as my faithful partner and supporter. 

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:6-7). The thankful heart is so dear to God that He fulfills this promise of inexplicable peace in a matter of seconds, minutes, or hours – and continues for days, weeks, months and years. When teaching Beth-El Congregation that the living God actually, really, truly, honestly, in face works in our own lives to make His principles and promises to happen, I have often turned to this Bible passage and encouraged them to pray this way, with Thanksgiving, especially for our Lord and Savior Jesus and hope of Salvation in Him. I absolutely know that He will reveal His mercy to us through this.

In the month of October, we witnessed to more than 1000 people. In this letter I will write testimonies from October and as well from previous months. The ministry was able to share Gospel in California, Pennsylvania, NY, Oregon, and Ohio.

In Detroit MI, with brothers from a local Church, we went to downtown. We met not a lot of people, but some were very interested to hear and accepted Evangelical literature. Also, we had a little confrontation with a group of “Black Israelites”, who were “preaching” there. 

In Greenville SC, we went to a main area of Falls Park to witness. Thousands of people were at that area. Today many people moving to SC because of the situation, and SC is considering as a conservative State. But even there, during our preaching, we had an opposition from LGBT people, and some others who did not like that we spoke about Lord Jesus and repentance. I saw many “middle fingers” towards me. But one person repented and accepted Lord Jesus, and some others asked to pray for them.

 In Atlanta GA, at Alpharetta area we met a Persian man who accepted Persian NT. An Arabic man and woman with a daughter also accepted Arabic NT, but couple people from India rejected.

 In Ocean City NJ, also with a group from a local Slavic Church, we went to a main sidewalk of ocean area. Thousands of people were there. It was our second outreach there in the last 6 months. Probably more than 35 NTs were distributed and lot of brochures. Many businesses were open, and we had an opportunity witness and give NT to Arabic, Turkish, and Bangladesh people. Sure, we had many people who complained and were angry on us. Many police officers were present there so everything went peaceful. I had very good personal conversations with people as well.

Thank you for your partnership with Beth El Russian Messianic Ministry and Congregation. Thank you very much for your generous giving to support the work of God. Thank you for your prayers for my family. Please pray for me and my health. The ministry is a very stressful, but very blessed. We also need more prayer support as well with financial help to cover our expenses. We need your encouragements. Without God’s grace and your help, we couldn’t do this ministry. Thank you!  If God leads you to start or continue to help us financially, please send your donations to the Beth-El Messianic Congregation, P.O. Box 360165, Cleveland, OH, 44136. All donations are tax deductible. May the God of Israel richly bless you and thank you for being our Partners.

Happy Thanksgiving! Shalom.The Lord is returning—Maran Ata! In The Messiah-Lord Jesus , Bethel Congregation and bro. Igor
