“Now is the time to help the church in Cuba!”
What can bring representatives of 20 church of Christ ministries and congregations together in one place to spend a Saturday? Answer: The unified interest in sharing Jesus with our Cuban neighbors to the south of us.
We were given a detailed history of the church in Cuba by Ammiel Perez who
continues to serve as an elder and one of the preachers of the 10 de Octubre
Church of Christ in Havana. His central message to us was: “Now is the time to
help the church in Cuba”.
Gregory Huffine, lists the present and future needs for Cuba.
We were encouraged to hear that in the last 10 years the church has grown from
500 members to 3500 members nationwide. There are now 70 trained preachers and
120 congregations. The unified efforts of brethren in Cuba, the USA, Jamaica,
and Honduras are bearing great fruit for the Lord.
Remember to pray for the listeners of our radio program, La Voz Alegre (The
Happy Voice) and Herald of Truth’s program, Lea la Biblia, every Sunday and
Saturday night on Trans World Radio. In Cuba the response is continuing to be
85 to 100 people who are seeking to know more about Christ each month. Praise
God! Also, continue to pray for those preparing radio messages heard in Cuba
and the rest of Latin America each week.
When you receive this article we will be participating in the Preacher’s
Conference in Matanzas, Cuba. This will be a time of encouragement and
spiritual enrichment for the Cuban evangelists and elders.
Your ongoing support makes this and so much more possible. Thanks for
partnering with us!

World Christian Broadcasting was given the opportunity to present three
messages at the Pepperdine Lectureship. Ammiel Perez was invited by WCB and
presented the history of the church and highlighted current needs in Cuba.
He shared details about pivotal points in history that have led to the church
now being recognized by the Cuban government. He was open about how we can
help in encouraging the church in Cuba. Ammiel did a great job representing
the Cuban people and their needs.
Pepperdine University has a long-standing tradition of recognizing great
servants of the Lord. Jerry Rushford, director of the Pepperdine Lectureship,
presented Ammiel Perez with the “Distinguished Christian Service Award”.

Only servants, through whom you came to believe- as the Lord assigned to each
his task. I planted, Apollos watered it, but God made it grow.
