People in Cuba live with the expectation that with the changes that are taking place in this island, things will be better. During many years, this country could not experience many things that happened in other places of the world. However, not any more. The present Cuban generation are witnessing things that their parents just five or seven ago would never imagine. Many people in this island somehow perceive winds of freedom. Unfortunately, the immoral values that prevail in the world are also present in Cuba. However, God is working among the true believers in Cuba. There is a tremendous desire among the Christian churches in this place to spread the Gospel, as the new changes provides the opportunity. Even ministries from abroad are finding easier opportunities to come and serve the Cuban church in order to reach more people with the Gospel. We are thankful to the Lord, because in spite of knowing that there are no Christian radio stations in Cuba, for almost 40 years, our programs have affected thousands of lives.
Twelve years ago, we decided to seek for a missionary that would represented our ministry in Cuba. It sounded somewhat impossible to have somebody representing Spanish World Ministries in this island.
However, we knew it was not an option to keep having the Gospel proclaimed every Saturday without having someone locally doing the following process. God answered are our prayers, and Anibal and Mayelin became our missionaries in Cuba. During all these years, they have been investing many hours traveling all over the island to visit personally to those that have wrote a letter to the address given at the end of our programs. There have been times that to find a single address; our missionaries have invested two to three hours only to find out that the person who wrote the letter passed away. That was the case as they visited few weeks ago to Alberto. Seems like Alberto hear the message of the Gospel and was interested in learning more about God. Therefore, as we received his letter we sent the address to Mayelin. As Mayelin got Alberto’s house, she could perceived the sadness in Alberto’s wife as she said that her husband had die few months ago. Anibal and Mayelin took the opportunity to share the Gospel to the widow and to other relatives that were in the house. Our hope is that Alberto was able to resolve his eternal destiny as he heard the Gospel through our programs.
There are time that the radio listeners contact us with desire to resolve issues in their lives. That was the case with Monica. Anibal and Mayelin visited her, and during their conversation, she shared that she came to know the Lord several years ago. Unfortunately, she did not do anything to grow in her spiritual life, therefore the joy of accepting Christ faded away. Some years later she started to listen to our programs every Saturday. Through the Bible teachings, she knew that she had already trusted the Lord, but at the same time, she realized how far she was in her relationship with her savior. It under that situation that she sent a letter asking us to pray for her. When Anibal and Mayelin visited her, she said that she was very happy to know that not only as a ministry, we prayed for her, but that also somebody took the time to visit her. She shared that through the Bible teachings she realized that she needed to fix her spiritual situation. Currently she is already attending a small church near her house. However, she continues listening to our programs every Saturday. She was very thankful with Anibal and Mayelin for the visit, and for the material that she received during this visit.
