Cuba has been hearing the gospel from the island of Bonaire for over 50 years, and one of our earliest listeners, Alberto Gonzalez, serves as our ministry leader in Cuba today. Since 2009, when Alberto began producing radio programs, TWR Canada has been the primary sponsor of this ministry in Cuba. Alberto and his team write and produce radio programs which have one purpose in mind: to speak spiritual encouragement into the heart of the Cuban people in spite of their difficult situation. This has opened the door for the team to have personal interaction with many of our listeners. Alberto and his team respond to all communications from listeners, and, where possible, connect them with a local church.
Alberto and his team are also travel across the country, presenting Biblical counselling training sessions, based on Hope for the Heart’s counselling material. They have several of these meetings scheduled throughout 2018.
As well, TWR Women of Hope's prayer calendar is distributed in Spanish across Cuba each month, allowing individuals and prayer groups to join others around the world in prayer.
“After receiving a letter from a listener in that city, telling me he knew three other listeners in his neighbourhood, I [Alberto] answered him, and agreed on a date for a visit. When we got to his house, we found out that he had gathered 15 people together. I was able to preach, and five of them accepted the Lord. I put the group in contact with the closest evangelical pastor. We gave them books and some New Testaments.”
- Pray for the directors of the three 15-minute programs on worship and music, counselling and expositive teaching.
- Pray for the upcoming counselling training meetings across the country.
- Pray for the capability to respond to the increase in responses from listeners, due to the Bonaire transmitter power upgrade.
Your gift to the Cuba Ministry will equip the Cuba Ministry team to continue their work in Cuba, reaching and encouraging Cubans across the country.
