Dear Friend in the Messiah,


Shalom and warmest greetings to you. Thank you very much for your faithful support by your prayers and financial giving. It is a privilege for me to write you a letter about the work of the Beth-El. Thank you to be a co-laborers and partners together. 

One unknown author said, “For the days are dark and the work is great, and the time is slipping away, so whatever we think of doing for God we had better do it today.” I believe that Jesus is coming very soon. Maybe for us it is the last opportunity to share the good news to the people around. I believe, the best blessing that we can give to the people is to let them know about Jesus as a Redeemer and only the way to be saved because without Jesus, there is no salvation.

In the last month of April, God blessed us to witness to more than few of thousands of people in a few states. 

In Seattle WA, a group from 2 churches and myself decided to share the Gospel in Pike Market. The area is known as very aggressive against preaching Christ, and very liberal where transgenders, lgbt, and antifa gather all time. Also, there lot of people and tourist who do shopping. We had posters and Bibles. I couldn’t use a mic because of policy and needed to speak very loudly to remind people the way of salvation in Christ. People were angry. One person spit on our brother but missed. Others said bad words and some were threatening us and showed middle finger. We prayed for them and offered everyone the Word of God. I saw that somebody who was on a bicycle started following me. Where I was going, he was going to. I had an opportunity to start talking to the person. It was transgender, but like real woman. He told me that he especially following me because he wants to know about what I am screaming so loud. I responded that it’s about Lord Jesus and started share good news. After that I offered him NT and added that in the book, he’ll find much more about what I was screaming, and the person accepted. Only God know, maybe this transgender going to repent?

I really wish salvation for this deceived people. We figured out that many transgenders and gay were present. I met another group of 4, but conversation didn’t go well. Another transgender first accepted NT, but asked me what I think about lgbt? I answered that it’s sin, but we all born in sin, and Christ gives Hope to be forgiven. We need to repent and admit our sin, and the blood of Jesus will wash any sin. We need to change our style of life! When he heard it, he became so angry, returned NT, and said that nobody needs of Jesus. We continued walk and share, pray, and offer Bibles. We stopped in different stores, where people were standing in lines and proclaimed glory of Christ and declared that kingdom of heaven is at hand. We were successful to distribute probably a couple of hundred tracks and dozen or more NT’s. Praise God!

After finished, we walked up to 1 Ave., and continued preaching Christ crucified. I could use a microphone there and there was a lot of people. We spent probably another half hour, and we prayed for people, Seattle and America. Thank you to being with us by your prayers and support.
