Welcome to Ted Ricci Ministries
From My Heart:
Darlene & I have chosen this as our focus for this new year. We pray you’ll join us as we desire “To give our Lord Jesus glory in all that we say & do in this New Year of 2022. Amen. “Give unto the Lord the glory due unto his name; worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness.” Psalm 29:2
Prayer Letter & Ministry Report for August-December 2021
Here we are with 2021 behind us and this world is still plagued with COVID 19. Again we wonder if life will ever get back to NORMAL again, hopefully in 2022. Darlene & I are still road warriors for Jesus on the deputation trail, I’m preaching His precious Word, witnessing, leading people to the Lord, ministering to broken hearts, encourging pastors & churches. Darlene & I are praying for more churches this new year to partner with us in our ministry. I’m blessed to now have Darlene serving with me in my travels when she can.
During these past several months I was able to preach in 13 churches. I’m thankful we picked up 2 more supporting churches, Timber Hill Baptist Church in Hamilton, Ohio & Buckingham Baptist Church in Ft. Myers, Florida. When we are not on the road I”m honored to teach a Sunday School class at my home church, Bible Baptist in Bradenton & also preach when Pastor Yannizzi needs me to. Some exciting news is that on Wednesday nights I’m facilitating our Grief Share Recovery ministry at BBC. Darlene is a great help and blessing as she encourages & comforts the women who are grieving the loss of a loved one. She has been such a blessing in our ministry, praying & ministering to women. Both of us had our battle with Covid, Darlene in early December & me starting Thanksgiving night. I wasn’t too bad but my precious wife had a hard time for 2 weeks. We praise the Lord for helping us & blessing us through that time. But you know this COVID 19 is not going to stop me from obeying Mark 16:15, the Great Commision, Amen. Jesus said: “Go ye…” And so we go just like He commanded us to.
When I first started out on deputation on September 25, 2019 I was a widow (single) & still broken but blessed. I thought raising my support wouldn’t be too hard as I set a monthly goal of only $1,500. But now that I am married & Darlene enjoys traveling & serving with me, my monthly support goal has increased to $2,900. I’m seeking direction & wisdom from the Lord as I wait to see in the next several months if we”ll have some new churches get behind us & our ministry. I’m also praying for those churches who showed an interest in supporting us, especially before this crazy man made pandemic !! My December monthly support came in at $650. My average monthly support for 2021 was $1,295.00, which included a few large donations from private donors. I really thought being on deputation as an Evangelist/Missionary sharing our ROMA outreach wouldn’t be so hard & discouraging at times, but like we always say: GOD is good ALL the time.
I’ll close this prayer letter with Jeremiah 23:3,4 “Am I a God at hand, saith the Lord, and not a God afar off? Can any hide himself in secret places that I shall not see him? saith the Lord. Do not I fill heaven and earth? saith the Lord.”
Thank you for being a blessing to our ministry.
Your Missionary/Evangelist Ted Ricci Colossians 3:17
