Praise the Lord! He is still in the soul-saving business! Amen! While I was in Monterrey, I was able to help two churches with evangelistic campaigns. In the first church, we did evangelistic Bible Clubs for several days in a row in several different locations. The weather was very hot, but the church had a prayer chain where they were praying around the clock before the upcoming evangelistic event. Praise the Lord! We were able to preach the Gospel to over 3,000 people, with the majority of them trusting Christ as their Saviour. The Lord blessed on Sunday, with over 200 visitors and 20 following the Lord in believer’s baptism.
In another great church around Monterrey, we preached the Gospel in parks, schools, and in a huge evangelistic rally, where we had an attendance of around 1,520 people. On Sunday, we had inflatable games, a mechanical bull, a drawing for different prizes, costumes, etc.; and the church had a huge day, with around 3,000 people in attendance! So in these two churches through evangelistic events, literally thousands of people trusted Christ as their Saviour. To God be all the glory!
Later I was able to help a church that we helped to start in Irapuato to do a soul-winning conference. Around 300 people were saved in personal soul winning. On Saturday, we did many evangelistic Bible Clubs throughout the day, preaching the Gospel to over 1,000 people, with the majority of them trusting Christ as their Saviour. The Lord blessed on Sunday, with many visitors and 54 people following the Lord in believer’s baptism.
Oh, my heart is truly burdened and stirred to reach the masses for Christ. I have been in the process for several years now of preparing a School of Evangelism that I believe can help us to make a greater difference for the Lord Jesus Christ. I have prepared 102 instructive and inspiring lessons that are in video and audio form. This is exciting because people could possibly take the lessons in church, Sunday school classes, Bible colleges or institutes, etc. I am also putting together some helpful manuals and books to help people in evangelism. The great news is that the majority of the work is done, and we just need to finish the work of duplicating, printing, packaging, and distributing this evangelistic material. The production cost for the School of Evangelism is $20.00 each. I am thinking it might be good to order at least 250 to 500 to start out with, which would be $5,000-$10,000 in cost. The Evangelism Manuals will cost about $4-$6 each, and it would be good to order at least 500-2,000. Please pray that we would be able to raise the finances to do this evangelistic training and outreach project. If you would like to invest and help us with this exciting evangelistic project, please send the funds to Grand View Baptist Church, 14855 South Leland Road, Beavercreek, OR 97004. You can also go to their website, www.grandviewcares.com, and donate electronically. Please put on the check or in the memo section or notes, “Missionary Darrell Ratcliff Evangelistic Projects.”
So please pray fervently for God’s power, love, wisdom, guidance, direction, the finances needed, and just the blessings of God for us to accomplish this great task for the Lord. We are so thankful for all your love, prayers, and support that are helping us to reach precious souls for Christ. May God richly bless you!
Yours for souls,
