With travel ban to Cuba being lifted we have a unique opportunity for eight people to meet many, many needs among that population during a 10 day trip. There are many home churches springing up. While the Cuban government has a general ban on constructing church buildings they do permit churches in homes, but these homes are in need of repair/modification to be useful. Additionally, most everything is rationed, just plain hard to get, or too expensive to even consider for the locals. That's where a mission team can fill the gap by providing the labor and funds for the projects while praying for and encouraging our Cuban brothers and sisters to persevere and reach out to their communities.
The particular purpose of this trip with Don and Janie Nellis of United Indian Missions (UIM) and local leaders Gary and Debbie Cheris will be determined as we draw nearer to the departure date since some current needs will be met while new ones will become apparent during that time. Past projects have included carpentry, electrical, plumbing, painting, plastering, laying cement block, and laying concrete. If you can do or help with these kinds of things then this trip is for you. The majority of these projects consist of remodeling homes into house churches while the rest of them consist of those that benefit the community. We depend on the Lord for His safety and strength.
We'll meet in the family room after second service.
