Darrell Ratcliff Prayer Letter:  Thank You for All Your KindnessesMy wife and I want to say thank you so much for all your love, prayers, support, cards, emails, 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 my last prayer letter, I mentioned that I am in the process of preparing a school of evangelism that I believe can help us to impact this world for the Lord Jesus Christ. I am preparing over 100 instructive and inspiring lessons that could be in video and audio form. This is exciting because people could possibly take the lessons by internet or use this material in Sunday school classes, Bible colleges, Bible institutes, etc. I would also like to put together some helpful manuals and books to help people in evangelism. So, once again, I would ask that you would fervently pray for power, love, wisdom, guidance, direction, the finances needed, and just the blessings of God for us to accomplish this great task for the Lord.

I also mentioned if you could pray for us as we are in the process of getting our permanent visas to be in Mexico. Because of this, we are selling a vehicle we have and may buy another one, as well as taking care of many other situations. So we are still working on all this, and I would greatly appreciate it if you could continue to pray.

I wanted to say thank you so much for all your prayers for our son Michael, who is seven years of age now. Of course, many of you know he was diagnosed with autism. We are taking a natural approach to his treatment, with many vitamins, herbs, and supplements. Our little Michael still has difficulties in adjusting to different situations in life and expresses outbursts of frustration. I have mentioned all this to ask that you would please lift Michael up to the Lord through your continual prayers, and also fasting, for his overall health—physical, mental, and spiritual. Praise the Lord that we have a God Who hears and answers the prayers of His people, and that nothing is impossible with our God!

The Lord is so good. In December I led an evangelistic campaign in Ciudad Victoria, and we preached the Gospel to over 2,695 precious souls. Praise the Lord! Around 1,396 people trusted Christ as their Saviour. Later, preaching the Gospel in Monterrey, we had over 1,000 people trust Christ as their Saviour in a one-day meeting. Oh, praise the Lord! God is still in the soul-saving business, Amen!

My friends, please pray that God would use us in a greater way to see souls saved for the glory and honor of the Lord Jesus Christ. Thank you so much for all your love, prayers, and support that are helping us to reach precious souls for Christ.

Yours for souls,

Darrell Ratcliff
