Latest news from Cuba

Some of you know that I have had the opportunity to legally travel into Cuba a couple of times which has given me a beginner's insight into what life is like for Cuban believers-- there's been amazing church growth over the past 10 years.  My friend, David Hunt of Envoy Ministries, just returned from Cuba where he talked with church leaders following Fidel Castro's decision to step down as President.  I recorded a two-part conversation with David about what he learned and you can listen to it at it's right on the front page.

When we were in Cuba last summer, one of the needs we saw was for pastors to have access to computers-- something they cannot even think of affording.  So, recently, a friend donated a laptop and it was taken to Cuba by Darryl Wright of WorldServe Ministries.  Afterwards, here's the email I got from Darryl:

"I was able to get your computer into Barocoa at the far end of Cuba.  The pastor (name omitted) is District Overseer for the Barocoa area of Cuba (where Columbus landed).  I thought he was going to cry when he received the computer.  He was so overjoyed.  They are a poor family and he doesn't have much so this will be a huge help to their ministry."

We plan to do more of this, so it anyone has a laptop in fair to good condition, let me know and we'll do our best to get it into the hands of a Cuban pastor.  They are an incredible breed who need our support.  You can learn more about the needs in Cuba (including Bibles) at
