Support Richard Hill
Shalom from Las Vegas and L’Shana Tovah (Happy New Year)! On the Jewish calendar it is the new year 5779. The Hill family is praising the Lord for a great last year too! Rebekah finished the archery tournament year in fourth place for her age bracket. She is currently trying to get on the USA Olympic Team for next year, so please pray for her! We also want to start this new year out right by thanking you all for your wonderful partnership with us and our ministry. We are praising the Lord for your prayer and financial support. Please keep up the great work in the Lord!
David, a Holocaust Survivor
You may remember “David” from our last Rich’s Reporter. He is the elderly Holocaust survivor Rich visited a few times last spring. Rich stopped in to share this summer and lo and behold, David had his son and daughter-in-law visiting from Canada. The Lord had certainly set up a great opportunity to share with David’s family and they listened to the Good News. Please pray for David and his family’s salvation.
Rich received a call from a supporter to see if he could visit an elderly Jewish lady “Rachel” who lives in a convalescent home. Rich’s initial visit was somewhat difficult because Rachel was not having a good day physically. However, the Good News was shared in a Jewish way with her. Please pray for more visits and for Rachel to see the light of Yeshua.
San Jose Vacation
Even when we are on vacation, we are working for the Lord! The Hill family went to San Jose this summer for a week off, but Rich was able to teach in a church about “Israel in Prophecy.” Oanh and Rich also shared the Good News with those family members that have yet to receive Jesus. Rich had a great conversation with a nephew who is Buddhist in name only. “Billy” was interested in the Gospel but has a Buddhist parent who would be very upset if he converted. Please pray for the Lord to work on Billy and his family’s hearts for salvation.
As you can see from the pictures, our mall ministry team is very blessed! We walk the malls wearing our evangelistic T-shirts, and the Jewish Israelis love it! This summer we gave away a bunch of “I Love Israel” T-shirts to the Israelis. In both pictures you see their happy faces in receiving the gifts! They are so happy that they also want pictures with us and ask if they can have extra T-shirts for their friends. We are thrilled to oblige because this is a great opening to share the Good News message of our Jewish Messiah! Once they have a free gift, they are happy to listen about Yeshua (Jesus). We always leave a Jewish tract or Hebrew New Testament so they can read all about Jesus in Hebrew. Please pray these Jewish Israelis into the Kingdom!
For the past two summers, Rich has been invited to Camp Shoshanah by Dr. Arnold Fruchtenbaum. Last year, Rich taught from his book, Freedom in Messiah, A Messianic Jewish commentary on the book of Galatians. Everyone seemed to enjoy the teaching greatly and some even bought books! This summer, Rich was asked to teach on “Messianic Jewish Theology.” Some of the topics were: the Mosaic Law and Torah Observance, Circumcision, Bar/Bat Mitzvah, and Kosher Foods. It was a lot of fun teaching the biblical and rabbinical viewpoints of these and other topics. Rich received a lot of nice feedback. Besides the great teaching at the Camp, there is great food and fellowship as well. It is a wonderful time of Messianic Jewish teaching and fellowship. And Rich met some wonderful new friends, too!
When the end of summer comes, it’s time to get ready for school. For us, that means it’s time to get the UNLV Outreach team ready for witnessing. We’ve started the ministry and have already noticed how spiritually cold the campus students are. We’ve had some great conversations so far, but we need your prayers for help. Please pray for the Lord to open up Jewish and Gentile hearts for the Gospel and for a great revival among the Jewish people of UNLV (and Las Vegas).
Israel in Prophecy, A Chronology
The title of Rich’s latest book is Israel in Prophecy, A Chronology. We are at the production stage and getting ready for printing. If everything goes well, it should be available at Christian bookstores in October. You will be able to order it from Amazon as well. Look for updates at our website: www.bethyeshualv.org. When you go to the website, you can click on our facebook or youtube channel and view Rich’s newest videos. He is teaching summary sermons of the book—there are about 30 short videos. We are very excited about this new adventure. So please tell a friend about the internet sites and the book! Please pray for the Lord’s blessing on this book and videos around the world.
Since the previous issue of Rich’s Reporter, 8 people received Jesus as their Lord and Savior through our ministry. In 18 years of ministry in Las Vegas as CJFM missionaries, we have led a total of 1,193 souls (including 65 Jewish people) to the Lord. We praise the Lord for using us to His glory!
Please pray for . . .
- More churches and individuals to partner with us;
- God to continue to open more doors for our outreaches: Beth Yeshua, UNLV, the malls, speaking in churches, referrals, and the dance team in convalescent homes; and,
- God to open the door for our own place to worship in Summerlin, Nevada.
Thanks from the Hills
You are greatly appreciated! Without your prayers and financial support, we would be unable to continue as missionaries to the 80,000 Jewish people living in Las Vegas. We praise God for you and thank you for your love and commitment.
If our ministry has blessed you, then please consider joining us as consistent financial partners. We need your help! Thank you, and may the Lord continue to bless you with His promise: “I will bless those who bless you” (Genesis 12:3).
