Expansion into Cuba

Dear Supporters,

Global Action is now in Cuba! We stepped out in faith when God provided a wide open door that we couldn’t ignore. We weren’t sure if we could do it, and it is a stretch for us, but we believe with all our hearts that God will bless this step of faith.

A pastor who provides leadership for several hundred churches in Cuba told us, in words that sounded like the Macedonian call — “Come over and help us.” As you know, there has been a lot of political and social change in Cuba over the past 50 years—and our experienced board is certainly aware of some of the challenges of serving in a place like Cuba.

But, to use the apostle Paul, a door has now opened to us. As U.S. relations with Cuba have improved slightly, we want to take advantage of this opportunity. We have a unique window to step in and provide the resources and training that Cuban believers are so hungry to receive. And we are heading to Cuba to train leaders who will change their country! Can you believe it?

Pray for us. And perhaps you may consider helping us with a gift that will help us provide resources for these pastors and be sure that they receive solid, foundational instruction and mentoring. Our classes are filling up in a hurry. We already have more than 200 pastors enrolled in the first year, with hundreds more eager to join as well! Wow!

None of this happens without you. Thank you, thank you, thank you for all you do. We will keep you updated on what is happening in Cuba. Can’t wait for you to hear some of the God stories!

For the Gospel,
