Community Overview

The island of mystery, romance, revolution, and adventure lies only 90 miles from Florida. But this largest of the Caribbean islands remains as distant from the United States economically as it is politically. However, the hard-working people of this Third World country are warm and friendly, welcoming to visitors from the United States. Many have families who have escaped the poverty and repression to find better lives in the USA. And God is definitely working throughout the island!

It is our privilege to join the local churches who practice community evangelism and the establishment of new churches by loving and helping neighbors, and sharing the Gospel of hope, purpose, and truth with them. We learn so much from them, and share great joy in the experience!

Mission Trip Details

Ministry

If you are hungry for relational ministry, this mission might well be the means to satisfy that craving. Every day, we work alongside local pastors and church members, walking the streets of their mission communities, visiting the sick and elderly, sharing prayer and love with everyone. We visit churches to worship and pray with them, to hear their stories, and to share ours. Perhaps our greatest contribution to the Kingdom work in Cuba is our ministry of love and encouragement to the people of the local churches, and to their leaders.

  • “Porch Evangelism”:From an impromptu invitation as we wander through a neighborhood, to a planned visit with our local missionary, an opportunity to crawl up into that welcome, porch shade is a double delight. We escape the heat of the Cuban sun and we meet and get to know interesting people who share their stories and lives with us. Of course, we are welcome to share ours in return. God uses these porch times to touch lives, including ours.
  • Baptisms: We are often invited to the baptisms of the people in the churches we partner with, usually in a river or in the sea.
  • Sports Outreach:We participate in sports events with the community, sharing Jesus relationally and encouraging other believers.
  • Local Church Ministries: We will often get invited to the dedications of local churches or to attend other churches/church events where we can pray, share testimonies, and encourage other believers.

Lodging

Your hostel is an oasis that makes it much easier to endure the sometimes hot and dusty days. A typical room has two, comfortable beds; a nice bathroom and shower; and air conditioning.

Travel & Transportation

Fly into Havana, or one of the other international airports, and we’ll pick you up at the airport. You’ll arrange your travel with your Missions Advisor about two months before your trip. All local transportation will be provided.

Health and Safety

The safety of our participants is a top priority for us. We have both an internal Risk Management team and external Risk Management consultants. We use a multi-pronged approach to risk management – including monitoring information from reporting agencies and relying on the knowledge of our ministry partners. In addition to our own protocols (e.g., students must be with an adult at all times), our ministry hosts and partners will provide trip specific safety guidelines for the particular trip location. Our Project Leaders are trained in risk management and have access to both on-field and home-office support.

Cuba’s government is definitely a Communist dictatorship, but there has for some time been a relaxation in tension between the government and followers of Jesus. Churches are still watched, but it must have become obvious many years ago that Christians are only interested in changing hearts, reconciling them to God, restoring hope, purpose, and life in a Kingdom that is not of this world. Christians in Cuba are simply not political. They are absolutely no threat to their government. In spite of the serious poverty, crime is relatively scarce in Cuba. But you will not be positioned to be threatened by anyone. There is little danger of any kind here. Medical facilities and pharmacies are readily available. While hospital medical equipment is admittedly outdated, it still functions, and Cuban doctors are known worldwide for their excellent care and considerable medical skills.

Meals

You will eat freshly cooked food, prepared by cooks from our host partner churches. We will drink only purified water, drinks made with purified water, or imported sodas like Coke. If you have special food needs, it will be necessary to bring with you the foods you can consume. Cuban selection is delicious, but limited to mostly rice, plantains & bananas, beans, yucca, chicken, pork, mangos, guayaba fruit, and wheat breads.

Registration and Payment

$500 Deposit: This deposit is required to reserve your trip. At this point, you will lock in your trip and we will keep in touch with you going forward about preparation. This deposit is applied to the total cost of your trip.
