Darrell Ratcliff Prayer Letter:  Evangelizing With Young Bible Institute StudentsThank you so much for praying for this ministry. Many of you know that one of the desires of my heart is to take a group of young people from good Bible institutes down here in Mexico to travel with me to help churches in evangelistic campaigns from time to time. This summer God blessed and gave me the privilege of taking some students from Mexico City with me for about 20 days. Every few days we were in a different church, so we were in around 4 churches in that time. Every day we were doing something to reach others for Christ. We went out soul winning, and the majority of the days, we did several Bible Clubs, as well as have special services with the churches. The churches were so excited about what God did.

One of the things that we did was go to nearby cities or towns that the churches had not gotten the opportunity to evangelize. So we went there to give the Gospel to the people, and the results were incredible. The pastors were also encouraged, seeing the openness of the people in the surrounding cities and towns to the Gospel, and they would like to go and start missions or plant churches in these areas. Oh, the harvest truly is plenteous, but the laborers are few! Sometimes, because school was in session, we would go outside of schools when the students were leaving and gather them together, and a few times we were actually permitted to go inside the schools and preach the Gospel. We had games of competition, shows, songs, toys, candy, etc.; but first and foremost, we needed the power of God to make a difference. My friends, God gave us His power, love, and wisdom; and, praise the Lord, literally thousands of people trusted Christ as their Saviour during this time. To God be all the glory! Thank you for helping to make this possible.

Thank you for your prayers. We are seeing people commit their lives to do the work of an evangelist, and others are surrendering their lives to actually be evangelists. We know the Bible teaches that evangelists also are given “For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ.” (Ephesians 4:12) Please continue to pray with us for 100-300 fiery evangelists to be raised up to preach Christ to the multitudes, help build and start churches, raise up more full-time servants, and train churches to be more effective soul winners for the glory of Christ.

Could you please also pray for the following:

• For God’s power, protection, and provision for our family and ministry
• That more churches would get involved in helping us to reach the people of Mexico
• That God would use us in a greater way to see souls saved and lives changed

May God richly bless you for laboring with us through your love and prayers to reap a harvest of souls here in the country of Mexico.

Yours for souls,

Darrell Ratcliff
