Darrell Ratcliff Prayer Letter:  Preaching in Southeast MexicoMy wife and I want to say thank you so much for all your love, prayers, support, cards, e-mails, gifts, and other acts of kindness this past year. Only Heaven will truly reward you for all you have done to help us reach precious souls with the Gospel. We are truly blessed and so grateful for all your generosity.

In December and January, we were able to travel in Southeast Mexico to help many churches in evangelistic campaigns, as well as teach in two Bible colleges, emphasizing the importance of doing the work of an evangelist to make full proof of our ministry, as the Bible teaches. The churches and colleges were so thrilled not only to be instructed in evangelism but also to make application of what they had learned and reach many souls for Christ. This is what the Lord Jesus Christ did—He taught His disciples about the ministry, but then the Lord Jesus basically said, “Now let’s go and reach other people.” They had instruction but also application on how to do the ministry of evangelism.

On the way to Southeast Mexico, we stopped in Puebla and held evangelistic rallies. We had over 450 people in attendance, with around 338 people trusting Christ as their Saviour. To God be all the glory! Later in Oaxaca, we held evangelistic campaigns with 2 churches and had over 700 people indicate that they were trusting in Christ! The churches were so excited and said that they were going to make application of what they had learned to reach more people for the Lord.

In Villahermosa, we had a very exciting evangelistic campaign and preached the Gospel in 4 different areas to well over 1,400 people; and, praise the Lord, around 1,140 people trusted Christ as their Saviour! Truly the harvest is plenteous, as the Lord Jesus Christ said. Later in Merida, we helped several churches have Evangelistic Clubs in neutral areas like parks, on open fields, under large trees, on soccer fields and basketball courts, etc.; and around 1,310 people trusted Christ as their Saviour. Praise the Lord! God is still in the soul-saving business! Amen!

There is so much more we could share, but we just wanted to let you know how much we love you all and appreciate all you do for us. Please pray that God would use us in a greater way to see more souls saved for the glory and honor of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Yours for souls,

Darrell Ratcliff
