Mark 13:10 “And the gospel must first be preached to all nations” NKJV
Dear. Ministry Partners,
We would like to thank you for all your support that you have given to us through your prayers, as well as, your financial gifts. This ministry would not be possible without your support and we are very appreciative for each one of you. Our last newsletter’s purpose was to introduce ourselves and our partnership with FIRE International as missionaries to Cuba. I would like to use this newsletter to let you know of some important projects and ministry visions which you can partner with. God is doing a lot of amazing things in our lives and through the ministry. The month of January was an incredible time as we were a part of a district coperate fasting and prayer for 21 days. During the last fourteen nights, several hundred people came together to pray at different churches around the Denver area. The last couple of nights of the 21 days a dear friend of mine, Pastor Keith Collins, came and spoke on revival. Many people were touched. It is evident that God is moving and wants to do something very special in this region. Also, I was given the honor to preach at our church a few weeks ago. God spoke very clearly to us that God was honoring our church’s prayers to see revival in our church.
We have an exciting opportunity to be going on our first trip to Cuba in April with our family. This is a very important trip as we will be meeting with local leaders and pastors to create a plan so that we can have the greatest impact in Cuba to further the Gospel of Jesus Christ. God has given us the great blessing of working alongside many leaders that will open the doors to over 1.300 churches. We will be discussing several projects that the Lord has laid on our hearts, as well as, forming pastor training conferences where well over a thousand pastors will attend. We will have several ministry opportunities while on the trip as well. This trip will be the ground work of many future trips to Cuba. We are asking for your support as we need to raise $2,500.00 in a very short time to be able to go. The money will pay for our flights, transportation, and our stay while in Cuba. We are in need of much prayer as ministry in Cuba has much opposition. Please pray that God would give us favor and protection while we are in Cuba.
As mentioned before, Cuba is experiencing a revival in many areas throughout the island. Pastors are well trained in scriptures but what hinders many churches and pastors from continuing in ministry is finances and ongoing support. The average person in Cuba makes around $20.00 a month to support their family. Many pastors in Cuba because of local laws cannot work and must be supported fully by the church. With very low wages many Pastors are not able to get the support needed to even afford enough food to feed their families. Many pastors receive only $10 a month at times. For the gospel to continue to be spread, we need to help support these pastors allowing them to support their family and churches. The vision God has given us is to raise support for 100 pastors who are in need the most. We would like to give each of these pastors $50.00 a month for one year to support the furthering of the gospel. This will allow them to not be concerned about their family’s needs and allow them to focus on the work of the Lord. To make this project work, we will need to raise $60,000. We are asking you as our partners to help support this vision that God has given us to take care of these 100 pastors for a year. With a nation of only 6% Christians, one way we can have more of an impact is by supporting local pastors through giving them the tools and resources they need. 100 pastors having the support they need will make a tremendous impact on the communities these pastors work in.
How to partner with us
If you are able, please pray about sponsoring a pastor and his family by giving a monthly donation. All monthly and one-time gifts are very appreciated. We cannot do this without your prayers and support. We will be sending out video testimonies from the Pastors and families you are helping to support soon.
You can also help us by spreading the word of the ministry that God has laid on our hearts. If you know of anyone who would like to subscribe to our newsletters, please have them request a newsletter to be sent by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org
We would love the opportunity to be able to speak at your church and share what God is doing in Cuba and through the ministry. Please remember to send us your prayer requests as we would like to lift you up in prayer.
