On his recent trip, Paul was able to visit dozens of pastors and leaders in the Eastern Districts of Cuba. We were able to pray and encourage so many pastors. The pandemic has been a severe trial for the Cuban people. The church is growing as it reaches out with the truth of God’s Word. One pastor told me that seventy percent of his congregation are new believers who came to Christ during the last two years. I shared a message of hope with the Cubans to prepare for a time of great spiritual blessing.

Paul, along with team leader Jerry Driggers, visited a number of projects both large and small that have been paralyzed for lack of funds or shortages of materials. Items are beginning to appear little by little. Cement and steel are especially expensive. We are getting ready to start up construction again in several places. With the notice that Cuba will no longer require proof of vaccination or negative covid test to enter the country, teams are now scheduling to go back. This fall several teams are already committed to going and helping build while ministering and encouraging the churches.
