Mikhail Vayshengolts reports from Tel Aviv,

“The small church I attend asked me to speak at our evangelistic Christmas service for Russian-speakers. My topic was ‘Christmas is a Jewish holiday.’ At the end of the service three people prayed the Sinner’s Prayer.

“The first was Maya, who, a few days earlier, had been to our home to celebrate Hanukkah. She enjoyed the atmosphere, which seemed so different from anything she’d experienced before. At the Christmas service she understood that knowing Jesus and what He did for us is the source of the peace and joy that she needed.

“Vilena has been reading the Bible for a long time, taking notes and searching for the truth. She was ready to receive it.

“The first two women who repented are Jewish. The third woman, Svetlana, is not. Svetlana used to attend a Russian Orthodox church on occasion and even participated in some Christian activities that were meant to be evangelistic. Yet after the service she asked me to explain why Jesus was crucified. After our conversation it seemed that she finally understood her need for the Savior.”

Please pray for these new believers to grow in grace and in the understanding of their new life in Yeshua (Jesus).
