Our Chosen People Ministries congregation in Irvine, California, has experienced considerable growth. Staff member and congregational leader Larry Feldman reports that all of Shuvah Yisrael’s virtual services and Bible studies have been better attended than their in-person services. Their Saturday morning service is viewed by approximately 600–700 people, which means that 1,000–1,500 people are listening. Their annual Passover Seder showed a similar increase. It appears more people are hearing the gospel now than ever before!
FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE
Russia staff members Vera and Kirill quickly mobilized assistance for at-risk people in Moscow, Birobidzhan and Sevastopol. They were met with tears of gratitude when they visited Sergey* and Inna,* who both have cancer and were in dire need of medication. They also spent time with Masha,* a Jewish woman with disabilities who lives alone. Masha had never experienced benevolence before. In Birobidzhan, they were able to minister to ten Jewish families and eight Jewish people with disabilities and a family with five children in Sevastopol.
