Dear Friend in the Lord Yeshua the Messiah,

 Warmest greetings to you in Emmanuel’s Precious and Exalted name! (Psalm 57:5 and 11). I pray that you are well and that this letter will be a great blessing to you. I thank God for each friend who is sacrificially giving and remembering this work of the Lord in their prayers. I thank God for your fellowship in the Gospel, and I praise Him for your help in showing the Jews and non-Jews the love of the Messiah. We know our service of love to Him among the Jewish People is pleasing to the Lord. (Mark 14:6c; Genesis 12:3), and we know that our labor is not in vain in the Lord hope to continue with you and some new brothers and sisters to partnering and have fellowship together also in this New, 2024 Year.

 We are in the last days before the Lord’s return. We know this from the signs of the times. The Lord Jesus is preparing the Jew for the time when He shall be revealed at His Second Coming to this people and out from the Jews to the Nations. It is the privilege of each believer on the Lord Jesus the Messiah to now have a vital part in supporting the faithful sowing of the Word of God among this people. Israel shall come to know the Lord Jesus the Messiah through the faithful sowing of His Word. This sowing of the Word of God among the Jews with our prayers is linked to the prophecy: “But ye shall be named the priests of the Lord: men shall call you ministers of our God” (Isaiah 61:6a). Israel shall minister the Messiah to the Nations, showing Christ and his glory to the Gentiles. (Isaiah 59:20-60:3; 66:19).

In the month of December, we witnessed by God’s grace to more than 1000 people. In Chicago, we had an outreach in two areas. First, we went to Millenium Park area. It was cold, but many people were present. People were preparing for the holidays. As always, we started from a restaurant area. While people were standing in a line, we were preaching and offering Scripture. Chicago is a very big and liberal city with many tourists. Unfortunately, not a lot of souls responded. After that, we went to the park. Most of the park was under construction, but we spent some time to remind people about what Jesus did for us on the cross. Next, we went to an ice-skating place. There were hundreds of people. We decided to go around the arena, preach the gospel and proclaiming Glory of the Messiah! Some literatures were distributed. Next step was Michigan Ave. We saw a lot of police, and on horses. We preached publicly. After a while, one police officer on a horse called me and asked a question: “Why did God create a man?” I responded that for God’s glory, but sin separated us, but Lord Jesus restores. We had a good conversation. 

Next part was in a Jewish area, in the North of Chicago. We were standing close to a Russian store, met people, witnessed and offered them Bibles. It was a good response by Russian Speaking Jewish people. 

In Philadelphia, we used a “Christmas Village” event for an outreach. Thousands of people were in downtown of Philadelphia. God blessed us to be very successful, especially when 3 teenagers stopped on the end of our outreach and started asking questions. One of them was Jewish. In Philadelphia, we distributed up to 500 materials, maybe even more.

In Portland, which is the toughest city for an evangelism, because we are physically abused there, within 1,5-hour Almighty God helped us to share gospel at Pioneer Square.  I was surprised that in this cold weather there were a lot of people in a center. Most people were waiting their trains. We used this opportunity to share Love of God to them, by standing across the train station. No accidents happened at this time. Praise God!

Also continue share good news by using drive through and any opportunity we may have in stores, malls, post offices and other.

We continue to reach Russian speaking Jewish people in Cleveland. Hope that you’ll be with us in 2024 as well.  Please pray for this part of the ministry.  If God leads you to start or continue to send your donations to help the ministry, please send it to:  Bethel Messianic Congregation, P.O.Box 360165, Cleveland Ohio 44136. Our donations need to be increased. We need your prayer and financial support. Please pray about it and help us for Lord’s Jesus’ sake. 

If you requested a Tax receipt for 2023, you’ll find it with this letter in this envelope or by email we sent to you.

May God of Abraham, Isaac and Israel richly bless you. Shalom and Thank you for your partnership with us! Happy New, 2024Year.

In The Messiah, Bethel ministries and bro.Igor.
