Darrell and Buffy Ratcliff Prayer Letter: New Year's LetterThank 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 so excited that we got to hold evangelistic campaigns with several churches in southeastern Mexico. In the Puebla area, we had around 815 people indicate that they were trusting Christ as their Saviour. Then later, around Villahermosa, Tabasco, about 1,385 people received God’s gift of salvation. One Sunday, with one of the churches, we had around 873 in attendance, with 23 following the Lord in believer’s baptism. Then in the states of Quintana Roo and Yucatan, we had 684 people accept the gift of salvation. We finished up in Campeche, with 84 precious souls being saved. Praise the Lord for a great harvest of souls!

My family and I always try to do something every day to give out the Gospel. One day after I preached at an Evangelistic Club, my wife and son wanted to witness to some people. My son witnessed to two adult men, an adult lady, a teenage boy, a teenage girl, and a young boy, who all trusted Christ as their Saviour. Later my wife got to win a mother and daughter, Lorena and Viviana, to the Lord. The interesting thing was that the ladies’ motorcycle had just broken down, and they were standing by the side of the road, waiting for someone to pick them up. We saw them and stopped the vehicle, and they received the greatest help of all, receiving the Lord Jesus Christ as their Saviour.

The Lord has given us so many amazing opportunities to train others to share the Gospel of Christ. I would like to remind you that we have a bilingual website (English and Spanish) called PredicaACristo.com that we are hoping and praying will help spread the Gospel, not only in Mexico but also in other countries as well. Please pray that more pastors, churches, and Christians around the world will use the free material (books, video and audio sermons, printed sermon outlines, and other practical helps) from our website to possibly double or triple their soul-winning efforts, results, and effectiveness in sharing Christ.

We are having a great start to this year. Please pray fervently for many upcoming evangelistic campaigns and meetings that we will have in 2024; pray that we will see a great harvest of souls for the glory and honor of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Please pray for the following:

• For God’s power, protection, and provision for our family and ministry
• That more churches would get involved in helping us to reach souls for Christ
• That God would raise up more fiery evangelists to preach Christ to the multitudes, help build and start churches, raise up more full-time servants, and train churches to be more effective soul winners for the glory of Christ

Praise the Lord for the thousands of people who heard the Gospel and were saved because of the faithfulness of your love, prayers, and support this past year. Thank you so much for helping us to reach others for the Lord.

Yours for souls,

Darrell Ratcliff
