Cuba Connection Committee
Thanks for new pastor’s home in Cuba!
May 2017 Update
Thanks to your faithful support, extra gifts and God’s continued blessing, here’s what the Cuba Connection Committee has been able to accomplish:
Torriente, Cuba parsonage project: Thanks the generosity of the churches of our Classis, more than $25,000 was raised (over and above our usual modest $5,000 annual budget) to replace a dangerous, dilapidated pastor’s home and diaconal ministry centre feeding dozens of seniors twice a day, five days a week. This project to replace a pastor’s home that was literally falling apart was completed earlier this year, thanks also to the windows and doors that were shipped in the container we sent last year. There is enough funding left over, combined with gifts from churches in the U.S., to replace a second condemned parsonage for another minister in Cuba. That project has already begun.
Pastor Antonio and his wife in front of their new home in Torriente, Cuba, in their new kitchen and with donated bicycles and many other things to make life a little bit easier – thanks to you!
