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
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 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.
As Covid19 is continuing, 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, Illinois, Washington, Oregon and Ohio. In King
of Prussia Mall, PA within last 4 months, we witnessed
twice. The first person, whom I met at the entrance, was
Israelite. He was listening my testimony for more than 15
minutes, but unfortunately, didn’t take NT. I met seven
total Israelites. Three of them accepted NT’s, but all of
them were listened Good News. I met an Azerbaijani Muslim
man, whom I witnessed a year ago at the same place. We had a
good conversation again. I asked him if he is reading NT I
gave last time. “Unfortunately, I lost when I was moving to
another apartment”: he said. I offered him another copy, but
this time he declined to accept. A Turkish man, whom I met,
accepted NT in Turkish, even he mentioned that he is an
Islamic man. A person from India, a Muslim, did not want to
take Gospel, but young lady from China, who accepted Gospel
of John in Mandarin and whole NT in English. I was
continuing walking and saw two Islamic women. They were from
“Palestine”. I witnessed to them and they accepted Gospel of
John in Arabic and other Christian literature. Two African
American women, who told me that they are Muslims, did not
want to hear about Jesus. Anyway, I reminded them that Lord
Jesus loves them as well and wished them Salvation. Also, I
met several young Americans and shared Gospel to them.
In several Airports, I met different groups from Israel and
Jewish people. An Orthodox Jewish family was very
disappointed when learned that I believe in Yeshua. Another
Jewish man, whom I started to talk, also did not want to
speak with me when I said that Yeshua is the promised
Messiah. Another Jewish couple accepted NT for themselves,
and a Hebrew copy of NT for their Orthodox family in Israel.
Group of 35-40 Orthodox Jewish people, who were flying from
Cleveland to NY, also received the Testimony. I was speaking
loudly and most of them were hearing about Lord. Some of
them were angry, but everything went well. Praise God.
In Midway, Chicago while I was waiting my friend, I decided
to sit and rest. Shortly after, a young man sat next to me,
who was speaking in Russian by phone. He was unbeliever as
he used “bad” words. I was praying and asking Lord to help
me to witness. After few minutes the Russian men left. I am
continuing praying and said that maybe its God’s will and
somebody else will sometime witness to him. But after 10
minutes the same man returned and sat to the same place next
to me. I understood that its Lord’s sign to share Gospel,
and I started. God blessed, this man took some Christian
literature, and we had a good conversation.
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.
If God leads you to start or continue to help us
financially, please send your donations to the Beth-El
