Another year … and Cuba is still in the news.
The recent passing of their iconic revolutionary leader caps off an anxious year for most Cubans as their future continues to look uncertain. Cubans are some of the most resilient people I’ve ever met and yet, even this year has been too much for them.
A new exodus continues as thousands of Cubans decide their future depends on getting off the island to start over in America. The trip is harrowing, long, and expensive. Even if they choose to avoid rafting across the Florida Straits and fly instead to Ecuador, Bolivia or even Russia, they still have to trek across continents to reach a U.S. border and claim their part in the U.S. Cuban Adjustment Act of 1966.
Now more than ever, Cubans could use some hope and good news.
Thankfully God is not limited by politics or ideologies. The churches in Cuba are full of joy and hope, working together in a wonderful expression of unity to bring more Bibles to Cuba. There is an extreme shortage of Bibles on the island and Christian communities from around the world are responding to the need. So far this year we’ve assisted in the delivery of 40,000 Bibles for Cuba. And another 100,000 are on the way, hopefully before the end of the year.
Days like these are an opportunity for God’s message of hope. It’s a great time to support and encourage our Christian family of the Buenas Nuevas churches as they carry the only truly good news the world has ever heard …
I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. Luke 2:11
Thank you for generously supporting this expression of God’s hope and encouragement to our family and friends in Cuba and Mexico.
