Ricardo Leyva Prayer Letter: These Were More NobleJuly was my wife´s birthday. She is doing fine health wise (keeping her diabetes under control). She stays busy teaching Sunday school to the primaries, singing in the church choir, going soul winning, and cleaning up my mess at home (sorry, I am working on that). Our daughter Elizabeth is now 14 years old, and she will be 15 this coming November 11. We will be having a party for her. She is doing well in school and plays the transverse flute in church. Moises, our son, is 21 years old now. He is a sophomore in Bible college. He is doing fine and serves in the Bus Ministry.


The Lord led me to the town of Viñales (on the western side of Cuba). Among the many people I met was an older lady who was very proud of being Catholic all her life. “And profited in the Jews’ religion above many my equals in mine own nation, being more exceedingly zealous of the traditions of my fathers.” (Galatians 1:14) We sat down in a rocking chair, and I led her in an earnest discussion and a happy conversation about the salvation of her soul. Afterwards I asked her, “Do you want to receive the gift of salvation, the Lord Jesus?” She answered, “Of course, I want to get saved!” And she received the gift of salvation! Amen.


The Lord led me to Pinar del Rio, an hour away from Viñales, where I passed out a couple hundred Gospel tracts on the streets. I met a middle-aged lady, who was also proud to be Catholic all her life. Our discussion was not as earnest, because she was more noble. “These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.” (Acts 17:11) Needless to say, when I asked her if she would receive the gift of salvation, the Lord Jesus, she immediately said, “I surely will!” And right then and there, she did! She got saved! Amen.

Please pray for:

1. God’s power for preaching, teaching, and soul winning.
2. Our family.
3. Our finances.

In His service,

Ricardo Leyva
