Darrell and Buffy Ratcliff Prayer Letter: Christmas Prayer Letter 2021Merry Christmas from our family to yours! The greatest Gift that has ever been given was the Lord Jesus Christ. What a privilege we have to declare this message to the world!

Praise the Lord that we have been able to share the Gospel of Christ every day in some way. We have given out thousands of Gospel tracts. One Saturday night, I was speaking with a young man in front of a house. All of the sudden, a lady came by and said, “We worship the Santa Muerte (“the death saint”)!” I kept concentrating on sharing the Gospel, because it is the power of God unto salvation, and the young man accepted Christ as his Saviour. Later, my son Michael witnessed to a teenage girl and a younger girl by a store; both of them bowed their heads to receive Christ and were sweetly saved. Then my wife witnessed to four teenagers. They stopped in the middle of the street to listen, and all four received Christ. Let me mention that we were in a rough area, and some people said to us, “Be careful! This is a very dangerous place!” That night we noticed some young people drinking, getting high, etc. I witnessed to four rough-looking guys, but they were open to the Gospel and prayed to receive Christ as their Saviour. Later, I won a dad and three young people in front of another little store. Later, Michael witnessed to two adult ladies and two teenage girls, who all trusted Christ. Then, as we were finishing up, I won a group of three adults and four kids on a street corner. We were also able to give out over 120 Gospel tracts.

There are so many more exciting soul-winning stories I could share about giving out the Gospel every day, but let me quickly give you one more: On a Tuesday night, my wife won three teenage girls to Christ—Sorjuana, Lupita, and Nancy. My son Michael won five kids sitting on a sidewalk to the Lord. On one street, it seemed like we were magnets just drawing people from all around. I witnessed to a huge group, and sixteen precious souls trusted Christ as their Saviour. Later, I was able to share Christ with sixteen others in different situations, and they trusted in Christ as well. We were also able to give out over 60 Gospel tracts that night. Praise the Lord! A total of 40 people got saved that evening! Wow! When we give the Gospel out every day, it is so amazing to see what God can do to reach precious souls.

The Lord has given us so many exciting opportunities to train others to share the Gospel of Christ. Praise the Lord! We have a bilingual website (English and Spanish) called PredicaACristo.com that we are hoping and praying will help spread the Gospel, not only in Mexico, but also in other countries as well. Please pray that more pastors, churches, and Christians will use the free material (books, video and audio sermons, printed sermon outlines, and other practical helps) from my website to possibly double or triple their soul-winning efforts, results, and effectiveness in sharing Christ. My books can also be obtained at economical prices on Amazon, Apple Books, Barnes and Noble, Google Play Books, Kobo, etc. Please pray that God would use these helpful resources for the furtherance of the Gospel.

We ask that you would please pray fervently for my mom Diana, who is battling cancer. Thank you so much for all your love, prayers, and support that are helping us to reach precious souls for the Lord Jesus Christ. May God richly bless you and use you in a greater way for the glory of Christ! Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Yours for souls,

Darrell, Buffy, and Michael
