Darrell and Buffy Ratcliff Prayer Letter: Great Opportunities to Share ChristPraise the Lord for the opportunity to serve the Lord on the mission field for over 17 years! Thank you for all you do through your love and prayers to help us reach precious souls for the Lord Jesus Christ. We appreciate so very much everything you have done for us and our ministry. We believe that only in Heaven will you be fully rewarded for all you have done to help us reach souls for the Lord. Thank you for making a difference.

Recently, we helped the church, which you helped us to establish in Irapuato years ago, do an evangelistic campaign. Praise the Lord! God blessed, and over 700 people trusted Christ as their Saviour. About 150 followed the Lord in believer’s baptism. Later we did an evangelistic campaign, preaching in many different areas with a church in Monterrey. The Lord blessed with over 3,000 people hearing the Gospel of Christ, and the majority of them trusting Christ as their Saviour. On Sunday, the church had its biggest day ever, with over 1,300 people in attendance! Later I helped a church midweek. It was raining in the morning, and we didn’t have many workers, but we won souls and bought some items for promotion. The weather cleared up in the afternoon. After we invited for about an hour or so, around 500 people came to the evangelistic event and heard and responded to the Gospel. Then I helped another church in Monterrey. They held a Youth Conference, with many great decisions made for the Lord. As part of the conference, we went out and did evangelistic campaigns in many different areas, and over 1,000 people indicated that they were trusting Christ as their Saviour. Praise the Lord! To God be all the glory!

There are other evangelistic campaigns I could talk about; and, of course, there are so many exciting stories about sharing the Gospel with others every day. One day after I finished an evangelistic campaign, I went back to the place where we were staying. My wife and son had not had the opportunity to share Christ with anyone yet that day, so we went out soul winning in the surrounding neighborhood for a little while. My son Michael got to witness to a man and a woman on a street corner; they bowed their heads right there and were sweetly saved. I had the opportunity to win two guys in front of a mechanic shop, and they also trusted Christ as their Saviour. Then in front of a taco stand, my wife got to win an older man with tears in his eyes and two teenagers to the Lord. Then as we were returning to our place, Michael got to lead the security guard to accept Christ as his Saviour. Praise the Lord! The harvest truly is plenteous, but we have to pray and work and reach others for Christ.

Please pray that God would use our website, and the videos, audios, books, and other training material to help God’s people be more effective in sharing Christ with others, as well as some upcoming opportunities on radio and other parts of our ministry for the purpose of the salvation of souls. I would ask that you would also please pray for some upcoming evangelistic campaigns. Pray that God would give us a great harvest of souls for the glory and honor of Christ.

Thank you once again for helping us to make a difference. Please pray for God’s power, provision, and protection for us and our ministry for the furtherance of the Gospel.

Yours for souls,

Darrell Ratcliff
