Personal Note

Shalom, Happy Chanukah and Merry Messiahmas from Las Vegas! The Hills are praising the Lord for all that He is doing in our lives. We also want to thank you, our supporters, for your prayers and financial partnership! We are blessed! Our daughter, Rebekah, was invited to a 30-day trial at the Olympic Training Center (OTC) to make the USA archery team. She is doing great, but please continue to pray for God’s blessing upon this situation.

High Holy Day Services

At Beth Yeshua, every Fall we celebrate the High Holy days—Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. Rosh Hashanah is the New Year and Yom Kippur is the Day of Atonement. These are very important feasts for the Jewish people because they examine their spirituality and relationship with God. It is a great time for not-yet-saved Jewish people to attend our services to hear the good news message of Jesus! After the High Holy days comes Sukkot (the feast of Tabernacles). During this feast, we build our sukkah (temporary shelter) to commemorate the wonderful theme that “God is with us” and He tabernacles among us. The picture shows our beautifully decorated sukkah. 

Valentine 

Oanh and Stephanie, our eldest daughter, recently had the ride of a lifetime. Brandon, who is Stephanie’s boyfriend (courting her for marriage), shared that his grandfather Valentine recently had a heart attack. Valentine was not saved and he was not responding to
any of the family members who visited him in the Californian hospital. Brandon was the only member of the family who had a strong connection with Valentine, but Brandon was unable to drive to California to minister to his grandfather. In steps the Lord! He put a great burden on Oanh’s heart to drive Brandon and Stephanie to California. This 5-hour-long drive occurred just in the nick of time, as the family was contemplating to stop life support for Valentine the next day. Oanh coached Brandon on how to share the Good News with someone who was unable to talk for communication. One needs to ask yes and no questions and have the person respond by squeezing their hand. After Brandon shared the Good News about Jesus, Valentine squeezed his hand to receive the Lord and be saved! Brandon then led Valentine in the salvation prayer. Praise the Lord! Brandon also confirmed his salvation over the next few days. Unfortunately, Valentine only lasted a week in his newfound faith, but he did graduate to Heaven! The funeral service was held and Brandon shared this blessed story at the eulogy. The ride of a lifetime can come from the Lord if we just listen and obey (Romans 8:28).

UNLV Campus Outreach

Rhonda led a young student to the Lord. “Laura” received the Lord with great joy and is being discipled by a new volunteer on our team, Carina. Rich met Carina at Camp Shoshana last summer and invited her to witness with us on campus. Ligia also led a homeless man who was visiting UNLV to the Lord. Every morning on campus we pray for the Lord to bring us people who are ready to listen to the Gospel and receive Jesus. This day, God brought this man to Ligia and he was just ready for the plucking! He saw our group sharing about Jesus and he came up to her wanting Jesus in his life! Please pray for these two people’s sanctification process.

Gary

Rich received a call about “Gary” in the hospital. He is at the final stages of Parkinson’s disease and was unsaved. The family thought he was dying and could not bear the thought Gary would spend eternity in hell. Rich went to visit and found Gary could not speak. So he had to use the yes/no question method and squeeze the hand for answers. God had been strongly working on Gary because he was very eager to get saved! Rich led him through the sinner’s prayer and now Gary is going through rehab. Please pray for Gary’s new spiritual and physical life.

Verse by Verse Conference 

Rich was invited to teach at the Verse by Verse Conference in San Antonio, Texas. The theme was the “Jewish Roots of our Faith.” Rich taught on the Ezekiel War and The Feasts of Israel. What a great blessing to see so many believers desirous to know their Jewish roots! If you want to view those teachings, check out the videos on our website: www.bethyeshualv.org. 

Israel in Prophecy, A Chronology 

Rich’s latest book, Israel in Prophecy, A Chronology, is finally available for purchase at xulonpress.com. Just click on the “bookstore” tab. You can also order it online at Amazon or Barnes & Noble. If you’d like to bless the ministry even more, then please purchase from Xulon Press. There is no middleman with Xulon so extra funds will go to the ministry. Rich also has extra videos of his teaching from the book at bethyeshualv.org. When you go to the website, you can click on our Facebook or YouTube channel and view these videos. We are very excited about this new adventure. So please tell a friend about the internet sites and the book. 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 and videos around the world.

Salvation Update

Since the previous issue of Rich’s Reporter, 12 people received Jesus as their Lord and Savior through our ministry. In 18½ years of ministry in Las Vegas as CJFM missionaries, we have led a total of 1,205 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 Hill’s

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” (Gen. 12:3).

As the Lord leads, please use the enclosed envelope and send all future financial gifts preferenced for Richard and Oanh Hill to:
