Ricardo Leyva Prayer Letter: God SHALL Give the IncreaseAugust

The month of August was one of those months where you know you did a lot, but it showed so little! You witnessed to many people, but only two of them got saved! You invited many people to church, but only one actually showed up! You made many visits to good prospects, but none were really that interested! You prayed every day, but it seems like the prayers did not make it too far! You spent money on projects to advance the Gospel, but you didn’t see any results!

But I know that I planted the seed in someone, and God shall give the increase. “I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase.” (I Corinthians 3:6) Somewhere, someone was encouraged to go forward, to do right, to be saved, to pray, to change, to love, to forgive. “And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.” (Galatians 6:9)


And we made it to September. Amen! I was able to get the medicines I told you about in my last letter. With your help, I bought over $300 worth of generic medicines in Mexico, but then the next great challenge was to get them to Cuba. After doing much searching for many days, I was able to find a cargo/packaging company that ships to Cuba. I paid $80 to ship the medications to Cuba.

The blessing was worth it! I shared the medicines with many needy Christians and also with some very needy unsaved people. Every box of medicine had a Gospel tract attached to it. Amen. And by the way, two people who had time to talk got saved!

I realize that I can’t help everybody, but I also know that I can make a difference in someone’s life. “And of some have compassion, making a difference.” (Jude 22)

I am looking forward to writing to you again in two months and sharing with you how God has used us for His honor and glory!

Until Then, Please Continue to Pray for:

1. God’s power for soul winning.
2. Our family to stay in good health.
3. Our finances.

In His service,

Ricardo Leyva
