Ministry & Outreach News From
Ruth, Our Sister Missionary In Russia
15th, Praise and Prayer: Our
vision is to see Russian Jews gathered into Messianic congregations being a
light to the nations.
I continue to stand amazed at how God answered our prayers for English
camp. First of all a correction from my previous note. There were
not 9 men and one woman but rather 9 women and one man. Some of the
women are non-believers from my English club that I have been praying for for
a long time. It was wonderful to see them build relationships with some
other believers-both Americans and Russians. My goal for the week was
that relationships would be built with the Russians who attended the camp.
That goal was definitely met. I believe that all of us who live
here in Moscow will keep in touch with some of the Russians that we met at
camp. God blessed me with such a wonderful team of volunteers from the
US who were willing to be flexible in the ever changing circumstances. I
am so grateful for each of them and for each of the Americans who live here
in Moscow who also gave up their time and money to minister with me. I
am attaching a picture of our whole group in our t-shirts that were provided
by Steve. Thanks Steve. And thank you Lord for doing above and
beyond what we could have asked or imagined.
The three volunteers from Minnesota left on Monday morning. I am
assuming that they arrived home safely as I haven’ heard from them. Please
pray for them as they recover the week and begin to share with others what
God did here last week. Mary Louise returns to the US on the 18th.
Please pray for her time visiting friends here and for safety as she travels
back to the US.
After the team left I have had a few days to organize and catch up
before I head out again. I leave this evening (Aug. 15th)
for Budapest. Praise God for a few days of down time before my next
My dad has been undergoing a series of tests over the past month and
they have finally diagnosed his illness. He has lung cancer which has
spread to other organs. The doctor said that chemo or radiation can
slow down the cancer but not heal it. Needless to say this is not the
news that we were hoping to hear. My brother and sister-in-law live
near my dad and are taking good care of him. At this point my dad
doesn’t feel sick-just short of breath and some pain in his hip where one
of the tumors is. He will probably go through radiation for the tumor
on his lung. I would like to be with my family during this time but am
not able to because of my travel schedule. I hope to be able to go back
to the US for a visit in the Fall sometime. Please pray for comfort and
peace for all of us during this time. Pray that God will give the
doctors wisdom about treatment options and that my dad will be able to make
informed and wise decisions about how to proceed with treatment. If you
would like to send him a card or give him a call I’m sure that he would be
very appreciative of that. Drop me a line and I’ll be glad to give
you his address and telephone number. I praise God that He is not
limited by space and time and that He is present with me and with my family
This evening (Aug. 15th) I leave for Budapest Hungry to
renew my visa and then travel on to Western Hungry for a conference. Please
pray for safety as I travel and some time to be renewed myself. I
don’t anticipate any problems with renewing my visa but it is not something
to take for granted so please pray that I will be able to get it renewed
without any problem. The conference that I will be attending is for
people from all over the world who are involved in Jewish ministry. Please
pray that it will be a great time of learning and networking.
I am continuing to make plans for the volunteer team that is coming in
September. Please pray that I will be able to get some things in place
today before I leave and be able to continue with the plans after I return in
On August 26th we are going to have a get together for
those who attended camp and for everyone else who attends the English club.
This time we will meet in a park and have a picnic. Please pray
for a good turn out and a good time of building relationships.
you so much for holding the ropes this week. I’m tired but so blessed
to see all that God did. May God richly bless you this week.

EVENINGS IN SANDY SPRINGS-Please pray for our Tuesday Night
Discipleship Fellowships from 7pm to 10pm. Please pray God would bring
PEOPLE He wants us to minister to and protect us from distracting PEOPLE.
Please join us if you can! My Jewish roommate MICHAEL now claims to
believe in Jesus! DR. EMIL SANDERS (Jewish Dentist) shared his
testimony with Jewish non-believers TODD, JUNE and LISA S. there! My
neighbor STAN (Jewish non-believer) asked why there were so many cars that
AFTERNOONS IN DUNWOODY-LEE and I continue to meet for
lunch/outreach at Perimeter Mall on Thursdays when I‘m in town. SNIR
(Israeli non-believer) asked me for another Bible because he gave the one I
gave him to another ISRAELI! Jewish non-believers LISA, CRAIG and
SANDY (from my Hebrew Class who I once ended up on a flight to Europe with)
were all challenged by my “Jesus Loves You” t-shirt!
IN MARIETTA-I have been partnering with BETH CHAIM, a new
Messianic Congregation in Marietta. Several of the PEOPLE from our
MINISTRY have been visiting there, we have been equipping believers with
“Jesus Loves You” t-shirts and clothing/books were collected for my
recent trip to ISRAEL.
NIGHT IN TOCO HILLS-I wore my “Jesus Loves You” t-shirt to
the Kosher Pizza Palace in the Orthodox neighborhood late Saturday night,
and some 30 Jewish PEOPLE were challenged. Afterwards, I shopped at
the Kroger and several Jewish PEOPLE were challenged by my t-shirt and
several believers asked me for a t-shirt. HONEY (Jewish believer new
to Atlanta working at Kroger) was looking for me because our mutual friend
ABRAHAM SANDLER (Jewish Missionary) in Pittsburgh told her I would be
LOVES YOU T-SHIRT PARTNERSHIPS-We sent a box of Spanish
“Jesus Loves You” t-shirts to my friends JONATHAN and CINDY (Jewish
Missionaries) who will be ministering in Peru. Please pray for
Jonathan, Cindy and their TEAM as they reach out to the locals as well as
any ISRAELIS who may happen their way. JIMMY (from Beth Chaim) took
several “Jesus Loves You” t-shirts to give away on his MISSION TRIP to
Kenya. Several years ago while in JERUSALEM, SOMEONE erroneously told
me it was illegal to evangelize in ISRAEL??? I was absolutely
devastated, but minutes later this bigger then life Texan Woman named JERRIE
came walking up the street wearing a “Jesus Loves Me” pin and giving out
Gospel materials! I mailed a “Jesus Loves You” t-shirt to Jerrie
in Texas, and her FRIEND in Pennsylvania asked for some. Then
CATHERINE, a friend of the woman in Pennsylvania, who lives in Maryland
asked for many for a Women’s conference where CELENA saw them and wanted
some for a missions trip to the Dominican Republic. After the mission
trip, I received a request to send 150 “Jesus te ama” t-shirts to an
orphanage in the Dominican Republic and almost cried as I mailed out the
box! My new roommate HAMILTON works at the Sandy Springs Mission and
took several “Jesus te ama” t-shirts to minister with. We supplied
EDDIE and LURA with dozens of “Jesus Loves You” t-shirts to minister
with in ISRAEL as well as produce several of their Chess Club t-shirts for
their MINISTRY. My FRIEND in Moscow, Russia organized an English CAMP
for the many Jewish people she ministers to, and our MINISTRY is blessed to
have supplied the t-shirts for the camp!
