"For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also for the Greek" Romans 1:16

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

Shalom and warmest greetings to you in the Name of our Lord and Savior YESHUA the Messiah. Thank you very much for all your support by prayers and faithful financial help. I pray that God will bless all of us to continue partnership together. Thank you very much for being co-laborers with Lord’s ministry. May the God richly and abundantly bless you as He promised in Genesis 12:3 and in the Psalms 122:6.

On March 23, from sunset, we are going to start to celebrate a great holiday – Purim, (Fast of Esther will be on March 22). I want to speak about this holiday in a short way of how it connects with the Messiah, with Israel, and all of us. The Purim did not command from the Lord to celebrate as other necessary Feasts (Lev.23). Purim is a more national holiday. Book of Esther talks about this and constantly of how this holiday was important for the Messiah’s coming, because on this time, G-D saved Jewish people from total destruction. Purim received its name from the Persian word Purr (the lot) whom Amman threw away to find a date for the destruction of Israel. If not for The Lord, Israel would not live. But “He who keeps Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep” (Psalms 121:4). The Lord himself has the swearing of Amalek, his descendants, and all the anti-Semites. “Because the Lord hath sworn that the Lord will have war with Amalek from generation to generation” (Exodus 17:16). When Amman lifted his hand to Israel, he lifted it against the God of Israel. We understand who used Amman. The Devil wanted to use him to destroy God’s people so that the Messiah would never come and God’s plan for salvation would not happen. The Lord on his almighty used a Jewish Girl to destroy Amman. Her name was Ester (Hadassah). Ester risked her life to enter before the king and save her people. “My maidens and I will fast likewise; and so will I go in unto the king which is not according to the law: and if I perish, I perish!” (Esther 4:16b) Here we see the high spirit and her love to her people. Powerful Amman was slain by the girl, because who raises his hand to Israel that it concerns the pupil of the eye of the G-d himself. For thus says the Lord of hosts: “After the glory hath he sent me unto the nations which spoiled you: for he that toucheth you toucheth the apple of his eye” (Zechariah 2:8). It is also a warning for all people who hate Jews. This is the short story of the Purim. It’s coming time when antichrist's going to try exterminating all of Israel as a nation when God will judge his own people -Israel and will bring them by his mercy to repent and salvation in Yeshua our Savior! Pray for this glorious day on the Earth! 

In the last month, God blessed us by His grace to witness to more than 1000 people. In Seattle, WA, we were witnessing at Pier 54 area, very close to Ferry Wheel. It was chili, but a lot of people were present. Almost immediately, when I started to preach, a person who was there from a “taxi” service increased the volume of his radio music. I was calm and continued to preach. Some people were angry, screamed, and showed different signs by their fingers to me. They also encouraged the person to make the sound of the metal music that was playing louder, but he already did it to the maximum. Shortly, somebody ordered the taxi and he left. We had maybe 20 minutes “quiet” time to share gospel. He later returned and the same thing happened again. But God Blessed us to distribute 5 NT’s, and many evangelical brochures. I remember 2 people who told us that they don’t have bikes but wish to have and read. We gave Word of God to them.

In Spokane WA, with friends from local churches, we went to downtown area. We distributed more than 309 materials and 12 NT’s. Also, one family from Afghanistan accepted Persian NT.

We were preaching across a store. When a manager heard and saw, he decided to hang a big lgbt flag to a window. When he did it, shortly, the flag fell. We continued to preach. The manager hung it again. After 1 minute, it fell again. It happened one more time the same. After that they didn’t hang. Only, after I finished, I saw that they hang again. I left but hope that the flag fell again!

Also, we had an accident with pro-Palestinian American anti-christian woman.

I can’t go to details but at the end she showed middle finger and left. Very sad.  

 Thank you very much for your faithfulness and partnership, prayers and support.

May Lord- God of Israel, richly bless you and yours.

Shalom in Yeshua our Redeemer and Savior, bro. Igor

Happy Purim!
