Support Richard Hill
Shalom from the land of Japan! As you can see from the first picture, we were greatly blessed of the Lord in the beautiful nation of Japan. We fell in love with the people, the culture, and the land as we spent two weeks teaching about the Jewish Roots of the Pre-Trib Rapture to over 1,100 Japanese believers! Thirteen people received Jesus as their Lord and Savior. Rich took this selfie and asked everyone from Kanazawa to wave so that you get to see the joy in their hearts. Everyone was very excited to receive the teaching! Pastor Kenichi Nakagawa (harvesttime.tv) has invited us back this year to teach on the Jewish Roots of the Second Coming! We are so thrilled and blessed to be able to go back to Japan again in October. Please pray for the Lord’s blessings on this next tour and for the sanctification of those 13 new believers. (To see more pictures from the Japan tour go to @bethyeshualv on Facebook.).
The second picture shows Rich baptizing Thomas, a student at UNLV. John, a CJFM volunteer for two years, and Rich helped Thomas confirm his salvation with the Lord last semester. Soon after, he wanted to be baptized, so we baptized him at the pool in his apartment complex! It was the middle of winter, and the water was freezing cold! But, praise the Lord, we suffered through it for His glory. Since then, he has been on fire for the Lord. Thomas came with us to a mall outreach to reach Jewish people, and he was so excited to evangelize. God has blessed him with a very outgoing personality, where he has no fear of walking up to strangers and talking with them. And most people are willing to talk with him as well. He saw a policeman in one of the stores, walked right up and started talking with him. After sharing the Gospel, Thomas prayed with the police officer about a need as well! The third picture was taken on our outreach in the mall. This young Israeli Jewish lady was so happy to receive an “I Love Israel” T-shirt, she wanted us to take a picture! She heard the Gospel message too, and is considering Jesus as the Jewish Messiah! Please pray for her salvation and for Thomas’ sanctification and protection.
Oanh and the Simcha Dancers
The Simcha (Joy) Dancers is the name of our dance team at Beth Yeshua. The group of ladies has been growing, and their ministry is growing too! The Lord has opened the doors to three convalescent homes where they go and dance for the residents. Oanh shares the Gospel with the whole group before they worship and dance, and then she and the ladies attend to the residents individually. Oanh has recently led three ladies to the Lord and shared the Gospel with many others. Please pray for these three ladies and their sanctification process.
Dinner and A Movie
Every month at Beth Yeshua, we have a Dinner and A Movie night. We bring an organized blessing (potluck) and have a Christian family movie night. And we always begin the night with a communion service. Well, this last movie night, a congregant brought three young girls who were family friends. Not knowing whether they were believers or not, Rich sat down and had a conversation with them. After finding out they were attendees at a church but had not become born again, Rich then led all three of them to the Lord! They were so joyful about their salvation and taking their first communion that they told their unbelieving parents when they got home! It was reported back to us that the parents were shocked their children received Jesus but were happy to see them so joyful in their decision! Praise the Lord for His blessings! Please pray for these children’s newfound faith in Jesus and that their parents will come to salvation too.
UNLV Campus Outreach
The new semester at UNLV has begun, and the Lord has blessed our group with two salvations already. Ligia and Rich paired up and led “Kevin” to the Lord. He was “ripe” for the picking. It has been weeks since he received Jesus, and Kevin told Rich that he is very happy with his decision for Jesus and senses a change in his heart! Beth, a longtime volunteer, led a young man to the Lord for her very first time! Beth was so excited that she finally led someone to the Lord! Please pray for these two young men and their sanctification process and that we can stay in contact with both.
The fourth picture is of our Chanukah party, where everyone brings their own chanukiah (9-branched menorah). We light the candles and celebrate the great miracle God provided the Jewish people back in 165 BC! It’s a joyous time of family and friends coming together to worship the Lord and eat some great foods like potato “latkes” (pancakes).
Since our last issue of Rich’s Reporter, 21 people received Jesus as their Lord and Savior through our ministry. In almost 20 years of ministry in Las Vegas as CJFM missionaries, we have led a total of 1,268 souls (including 67 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.
