Why you should serve

The need in Cuba

Location: Havana, Cuba

Cuba has only recently been open for travel from the United States. Since 1959, Cuba has been under communism and has disallowed Christian churches to build new church buildings. Cuban Christians have undergone persecution. Today, most Cubans have an indifference toward Christianity; they look down upon Christians as unintelligent. Christian Cubans long for friendship and relationship, to share their story and to hear yours.

We are partnering with local ministries to encourage churches & families and to support people with disabilities, orphanages, and agriculture work.

Ways to serve:

Missionaries often don’t have the budget for repairs or updates, so we ask our teams to contribute to the ongoing upkeep of the mission site, and help with bigger projects as needed.

Join us as we share the love of Christ with children and youth through things like food distribution, skits, music, crafts*, etc. * Teams are responsible for bringing necessary craft supplies and should budget appropriately.

As in many countries around the globe, people with special needs are often forgotten by society. We want to see God’s name glorified among them. We encourage teams to come prepared with songs, skits, crafts, games, and stories and to interact with these precious children of the King.

A knowledge of the English language opens up opportunities that native Cubans may not have otherwise had. We believe that learning English will help equip them for success in the future.

We know that many children living in orphanages around the world are economic orphans rather than orphans in the traditional sense of having lost both parents. Our child sponsorship program is proof that we aim to keep families together by alleviating some of the financial burden that many families around the world face. While all of this is true, it is also true that there are children living in orphanages or group homes who deserve to be held, played with, and offered the hope that comes from knowing that there is a Heavenly Father who loves them unconditionally, if we cannot bring about the change that would reunite them with their families

Christians in Cuba are often isolated because of their faith. It is our desire to come alongside them, listen to their stories, and pray with them as a way to encourage them to continue to stand firm.
