Darrell Ratcliff Prayer Letter: 2016 Christmas LetterSeason’s greetings from our family to yours! The Bible says, “And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.” The greatest gift that has ever been given was the Lord Jesus Christ, Who was born, died, and rose again so that we could go to Heaven. What a privilege we have to declare this message to the world!

We had the wonderful privilege to proclaim this glorious Gospel message in Matehuala with Evangelist Manolo Robledo, whom I helped train in evangelism, and his father, who is the pastor there. We were able to preach the Gospel to thousands of people in public schools, open-air evangelistic clubs, and a huge rally with a mechanical bull and several inflatables. Well over 3,000 people trusted Christ as their Saviour. To God be all the glory! Truly the Gospel of Christ is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth! Praise the Lord for the great things He has done!

Later one Saturday in Irapuato with the church we helped to start there, we preached the Gospel in several locations in the city; and, praise the Lord, over 600 people trusted Christ as their Saviour!

I also had a wonderful opportunity to teach and preach in a Bible institute in San Luis Potosi that has over 300 students. I emphasized the importance of the evangelist and how we all need to do the work of an evangelist, preaching the glorious Gospel to the lost and dying world. God blessed in a powerful way, with some surrendering to be evangelists and the majority committing their lives to do the work of an evangelist in taking the Gospel to every creature, as the Lord Jesus Christ has commanded us to do. On Saturday we did an evangelistic event and preached the Gospel to hundreds of people; and, praise the Lord, the majority of them trusted Christ as their Saviour!

So please continue to pray for God’s power, protection, and provision for our family and ministry and that God would use us in a greater way to see souls saved and lives changed.

My friends, we are so grateful for all your love, prayers, and support that are helping us to reach precious souls for Christ. May God richly bless you! Have a merry Christmas and a happy New Year!

Sincerely in Christ,

Darrell, Buffy, and Michael
