 Dear Friend,

Shalom and warmest greetings to you from our God the Father and the Lord Jesus the Messiah. Thank you very much for your partnership with us. Thank you very much for your support by prayers and financial giving. May your faith never be shaken and may God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, God of Israel bless you abundantly!

Summer is over and we are just ready for the Fall Feasts – Tishrei month Holidays. On September 6 (Elul 29-Tishrei 1), from sunset, we are going to begin celebrating the Feast of Yom Teruah (Feast of Sounding of the Shofar or by Rabbinical tradition Rosh-Ha Shana- Jewish New 5782 Year), and ten days later, we will celebrate Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement), and finish with Sukkoth (Feast of Tabernacles). All these feasts have prophetic meaning regarding Rapture of the church, Tribulation, Repentance and salvation of Israel, and the return of the Messiah. The ancient rabbis held a similar view: “In the month of Nisan (at Passover), our ancestors were redeemed, and in Tishrei (Rosh Ha-Shana), they will be redeemed in the time to come”. Also, they say:” And it is the ram’s horn that the Holy One, blessed be he, is destined to blow when the son of David, our righteous one, will reveal himself, as it said ‘And the Lord God will blow the horn’ “.

 In the month of July, we witnessed by God’s grace to more than 1000 people. In this letter, like always, we are going to share testimonies that happened in the previous months. In Minneapolis MN, immediately when we started preaching, one young woman became angry, opened mouth, and started speaking “Tangs”. I knew that the “Tangs” she was speaking were not from Holy Spirit. The woman was angry, with purple color of her hair. I felt that she is a witch. I opened my heart and started call Blood of Christ! When I called the Blood, this woman closed her mouth and disappeared, and we continued share Good News. People themselves came to us and asked NT’s and other Christian tracts. But Downtown Minneapolis still a dangerous place with gang and drug activities, and almost there is no police. I saw myself how some groups were sale drugs.

In Atlantic City, NJ we also had an outreach. It was before when State of NJ officially removed most of restrictions. Not a lot of people were on sidewalk. We met Turkish, Arabic, Bangladesh, and Pakistani people. All of them were owners of some stores there, and all of them accepted Gospel and some literature on their languages. I met a woman from Norway. She showed me a middle finger, but I wanted talk with her, and we started to have a conversation. She told me that she has Muslim roots but believes that all religions lead to Heaven. I disagreed, because only Christ died for us and rose from the grave. It was hard to speak, but she heard the witness. In Philadelphia, we used a European Deli store to see people and share. We met more than 30 Arabs and most of them accepted Christian literature and Gospel of John in Arabic. I met people from France, Brazil, Poland, Pakistan, India, but most I met Russian speaking Jewish people and Russian Orthodox. Many of them were open to hear Gospel and accepted brochures. An Iranian got Gospel of John in Farci, and a Turkish worker of the store got NT in Turkish. Praise God!

In PHL I met 2 Rabbis. Both were Hassidic Rabbis, but one from Satmar movement (Lithuanian Hassid’s), and the second was Chabadnic. The Satmarian was very glad that I spoke in Hebrew with him until he learned that I believe in Yeshua. He run so fast from me like a person who got a flame. With the Chabad Rabbi we had a conversation. He told me that everyone could believe any “gods” of their religion and its ok. I responded that everyone could believe what they want but only faith to Lord Jesus saves! Shortly somebody came and pick up the Rabbi.   

Bethel Congregation is doing well, even we were harmed very much because of “pandemic”. Thank you for your prayers. My Family also sending you greetings and shalom! Please continue pray for us. Rafael, my youngest son, was diagnosed with a Crohn's disease. He is feeling not good. Please remember him in your prayers.

Thank you so much for your faithfulness, kindness, prayers, and financial support. If Lord leads you start or continue help us financially that many people, Jews, and non-Jews, may receive witnesses and Scriptures about the only The Way to be saved- Lord Jesus Christ, please send your donations to Bethel Messianic Congregation, P.O.

May the Lord-God of Israel richly bless you! Amen!  Happy Lord’s Holidays. Shalom. In Lord Yeshua our Redeemer Bethel and bro. Igor.
