 Personal Note

Shalom from Las Vegas! The Hills are praising the Lord that our daughter Rebekah was asked to train with the USA Archery Team!!! We are so excited for her, but it is a bitter-sweet moment. She has to live at the Olympic Training Center in San Diego. She is our first child to move away from home, and we are saddened about that.  Thank you all so much for your prayers, and please continue to pray for her health, great shooting, and the Lord’s blessings.

Kelli

At Beth Yeshua, during every service we have children’s ministry. It’s called “Shabbat School.”  Oanh takes the children to a classroom to teach them the Bible. Sometimes our children bring their unsaved friends. “Kelli,” a friend of one of our members, did not know a lot about Jesus. Kelli is a 9-year-old growing up in a liberal world that barely ever goes to church. Well, the Lord had a different plan for Kelli that night! Oanh shared the Gospel message with her and she joyfully received Jesus. Oanh is careful to present the full Gospel with all of these children. She explains what sin is, the consequences of it, why Jesus died for our sins, and the need to repent. What a blessing for Kelli to be ready to receive Jesus! Please pray for Kelli’s protection and sanctification process.

Mall Outreaches 

Rich led his team of volunteers on two excursions to the malls. One was during Chanukah and all the Israeli Jewish people were so happy to see us! We gave out “I Love Israel” T-shirts as gifts and these Jewish people were so excited! They were also willing to talk about Yeshua the Messiah and we were able to share the Good News message with many Israeli Jewish people. Please pray for their salvation!

The Sisterhood 

At Beth Yeshua, our ladies get together in a group called the “Sisterhood” to take care of the needs of the congregation and the community. During a planning meeting at a restaurant, Oanh requested the pianist to play some Jewish songs. While he was playing, another table of ladies was clapping and singing along with our group! So Oanh decided this was a God-appointed opportunity. She visited their table, introduced herself, and it turns out all five ladies were Jewish. Oanh was able to share the Good News message of Jesus with the whole table and leave some tracts as well. You just never know when the Lord will open up an opportunity!!!

The Pictures 

The first picture shows Oanh teaching our congregants at Beth Yeshua how to light and pray over the Chanukah candles. The other picture is of our Beth Yeshua dance team, “Simcha Dancers.”  They just finished dancing to our last song of the service, “Shabbat Shalom.” 

David

Over the years, Rich has volunteered as a coach for flag football and basketball. Last basketball season David’s son was on our son Isaak’s team. Rich shared the Gospel with David and he was not interested. He would not even meet with Rich outside of basketball to talk about Jesus. But the Lord has His ways! Recently, David ended up in the hospital and Rich visited him. David and his wife were grateful for the visit and he actually listened to Rich talk about Yeshua. David had a quick brush with death and now he’s desiring to attend our services. He even asked about the cost of membership to Beth Yeshua! This is typical of Judaism because they do charge membership fees. I told him we have no membership fees! It’s all free and coming to Yeshua is free, too!

Michael, My Holocaust Survivor Friend

Every time Rich teaches in a church close to Bullhead City, Arizona, he visits Michael. Rich was introduced to Michael by our chaplain friend in the area. Michael is a Holocaust survivor. He is 92 years old and in decent physical health. His whole family died in the Holocaust except him and his brother. Michael had yet to meet Oanh,  so this was a special time for us. He was a businessman and a world traveler who was greatly interested in Oanh’s Vietnamese background. He was intrigued to know about her growing up in Vietnam prior to her family’s escape from the War. There was a connection between them, and we hope it will further the Gospel message into Michael’s heart. He still does not seem able to talk about Jesus as yet. He listens to our presentation, but does not comment on it. Please pray for Michael and his heart being open to Yeshua!

Israel in Prophecy, A Chronology

You can purchase the ebook on Apple books, Amazon, or Barnes & Noble. Please tell a friend and spread the news! Also, let your pastor know! Rich is available to come to your church and teach. Please pray for the Lord’s blessing on this book around the world.

Salvation Update

Since our last issue of Rich’s Reporter, 2 people received Jesus as their Lord and Savior through our ministry. In 18 and 1/2 years of ministry in Las Vegas as CJFM missionaries, we have led a total of 1,207 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).
