We are not in a lockdown in Cuba, but churches were told to close again. We go visit families in their homes and have a short service with only their families. We sing, pray, give thanks; and then I or the Cuban pastor preach a little. We make these visits every other day to different families. On Sundays, we do it twice a day—one visit in the morning and another one in the evening.
The great blessing of this is that unsaved family members, who never went to church, having no place to go and nothing to do, they join our services. Some have gotten saved. Amen! “And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house. And they spake unto him the word of the Lord, and to all that were in his house.” (Acts 16:31-32) Christians are rejoicing and giving thanks for the salvation of loved ones and for the interest they now have for the things of God! We continue to pray that the ones who are not saved yet will soon get saved.
Cubans complain that the government has no plan to end the virus! The Health Department is just beginning to vaccinate Cubans with a Cuban vaccine, created by Cuban scientists. The problem is that they are moving very slowly. They don’t anticipate finishing until late in the year, and there are only 10.5 million people in Cuba. I see there is hope!
There is hope when we trust and have faith in God! I know Christians in five Cuban cities. We stay in touch by phone calls or texts. I thank God that all of them are in good health; none have gotten sick with the virus. However, they do have a lot of needs. Most Christians in Cuba have shown great faith in these difficult times!
Until we get back to some normalcy (churches allowed to congregate at 100%), we can’t make any plans for new ministries or church events, such as conferences, camps, special days, etc. However, I have a plan—the plan of salvation—and the plan is to share it with as many people as possible and bring hope to the people of Cuba.
Please pray for:
1. My and my wife’s health.
2. Our finances.
3. Holy Spirit’s guidance.
