Darrell and Buffy Ratcliff Prayer Letter: 2023 Christmas LetterSeason’s greetings from our family to yours! The Bible says, “And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.” The greatest gift that has ever been given was the Lord Jesus Christ, Who was born, died, and rose again. What a privilege we have to declare this message to the world!

Praise the Lord for the great opportunity I had to preach the Gospel in the country of Ecuador. In the city of Santo Domingo with Pastor Fuentes, we preached in public schools, and around 2,200 people heard the Gospel of Christ. Later, with Pastor Gallo in Riobamba, we preached to over 800 people in several evangelistic Bible Clubs and a few schools. I was able to teach and train in the churches and Bible colleges, and many of God’s people were challenged, instructed, and motivated to take the Gospel to the lost. Glory to God, the majority of people to whom we preached received Christ as their Saviour!

We are so excited that we got to have an evangelistic campaign and a Big Day with a church that we helped to establish in Irapuato, Mexico, which is pastored by Pastor Arrache. During the campaign, we preached to around 1,000 people in evangelistic Bible Clubs, and on the Big Day on Sunday, they had around 700 in attendance. The church put up a big tent, set up some inflatable games, and had food for everyone; and the Lord blessed in a powerful way with a great harvest of souls.

We are so proud of our son Michael! Recently, we were on our way to a Sunday evening service at a church. Michael told us that he would really like to witness, if possible. We had a little time before the service, so we stopped in a little park between some apartments, and Michael got to win three teenagers—Ricardo, David, and Clara—to the Lord. Later, as we got closer to the church, we saw a group of adult men on the street. Michael boldly witnessed to them, and all four bowed their heads and asked Christ to save them. Please pray for our son; pray that God would bless him physically, mentally, and spiritually and use him in a great way for the glory and honor of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Please continue to pray that God would bless our family, our ministry, and also our website, PredicaACristo.com (where we have free videos, audios, books in digital form, and other materials), for the furtherance of the Gospel here in Mexico and around the world. Printed copies of my books can be found on Amazon.com.

Thank you so much for all your love, prayers, and support that are helping us to reach precious souls for the Lord. May God richly bless you and use you in a greater way for the Lord Jesus Christ! Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Yours for souls,

Darrell, Buffy, and Michael
