In 2000 a Cuban Christian named Benito was visiting his aunt in Manitou Springs. He walked all the way to First Pres to be able to worship with brothers and sisters in Christ. A fellow worshipper greeted Benito and invited him to Becomers Sunday School. Through Benito, we met First Reformed Presbyterian Church of Havana, now our partner in Cuba.
This church-to-church partnership provides us with important perspective about God’s Church in a country that has oppressed all religion. We gain insight and perspective about what it means to live out a life of faith in a place that is difficult. God has used our partnership to help develop a prison chaplains program in Cuba, as well as a ministry to the elderly. Our yearly trips have allowed significant relationships to develop, which provide mutual encouragement and respect.
