Reaching the Latin American World

 

Roberto Pino Shares a Listener Update from Cuba

Roberto Pino directs the training of preachers in Cuba, serves as an elder, and is in charge of the follow-up of our radio listeners. 

He writes: “We continue to receive reports of a growing audience in Cuba and are sending each listener the Bible course:

¿Qué Dice La Biblia? (What Does the Bible Say?). 

Then, those who want to continue studying enroll in the lessons from Larry White: Cursos Bíblicos para Obreros Cristiano (Bible Courses for Christian Workers)

In a short time, we now have a whole lot of students studying and have put them in contact with local congregations everywhere.  The truth is that the radio program is a great blessing.”

Plans are being made now for Rex Morgan, Jose Castillo Jr., and others, to travel to Cuba in May to train evangelists that will meet us in Havana. We will conduct a workshop on teaching how to write and produce audio messages to further their effectiveness in their local ministries and with our radio listeners.

Remember Baby Seidy’s story about her blindness from our December report? An update from Health Talents International:

 
Seidy is on our patient list and Dr. Sierra has been in touch with her. Until the US surgeon sees her on March 8 or 9, we won’t know the precise day of her surgery or whether or not it can be done.
Julie Wheetley is leading that team and will be at Clinica Ezell that week and will keep us posted. If I learn anything new,good or bad, we’ll let you know.
Keep praying!

What’s Going On? December 2013

 
Reaching out to the Latin American World
 
A Picture Is Worth … Maybe,A Baby’s Sight?

Sadie was born blind.  Her doctors in Guatemala told her mother, soon after her birth in 2012, that there was nothing they could do to help her to see.

But, that all changed for Sadie and her family on Sunday, November 4, 2013.  The family gathered with the estimated 4,000 for a great worship service in Guatemala City.  The large metal hangar of a building was packed with people from all over Guatemala and from the United States and other countries attending the 50th Pan American Lectureship.

“Can I take your picture?” I asked the friendly looking woman who had a child strung on her back.  Then, Sadie’s grandma smiled and turned around for me take their picture.

Taking photos of people and capturing moments of spiritual fellowship is a part of what I enjoy doing as we travel.

These pictures are used to share the activities God allows Christian Productions to be involved with.  For me, a picture has always been worth a thousand words, until now.  On this day it was worth much more!

The next thing I heard was a gentle voice in my ear saying, “Excuse me, I am the mother of that baby you just took a picture of, and that is my mother holding the baby.”  The young mother then gave me a desperate look and told me that her 17-month-old baby, Sadie, was blind.

“I heard there may be an eye doctor with your group attending the Pan American Lectureship.  Do you think he could help my baby?” she asked.

Yes, Dr. Allen Dutton, a missionary to Brazil and an eye doctor was attending the lectureship.  Right there and then, in the parking lot behind the family’s pick-up truck, he examined Sadie’s eyes as she lay in her grandmother’s arms. He opened one eye then the other.  Each time Sadie cried out when the light hit her eye.  Allen turned around and smiled at the gathering crowd of family, each of which had hopeful tears pouring down their face.  Then he happily told us that Sadie could see light.  Her cataract filled eyes prevented her from seeing and that these should be removed immediately.

Sadie’s mom shook her head and said the doctors had told her that nothing could be done for the baby in Guatemala.  We all circled our arms around each other and prayed for God to open up a way for Sadie to get the help she needed. We got the family’s contact information from Sadie’s uncle, said good-bye, and  walked to the school buses that had brought us to the Sunday service.

Then, God answered our prayer for Sadie’s sight!

As we walked up Rick Harper, from Health Talents International, was getting on the bus too.  When he heard Sadie’s story he smiled and told us that a group of eye surgeons were scheduled to arrive in Guatemala the first week in March!

Follow-up: Health Talents International has contacted Sadie’s family, and baby Sadie is scheduled to be examined, and given whatever help the surgeons can provide. Click on banner below to learn more about:

Let’s smile as we remember to pray for Sadie’s healing, her family’s encouragement, and that God’s name will be glorified through our fellowship.

This experience is a gift we can all cherish during this holiday season. Enjoy!

Celebrating the Lord on Sunday morning, the church in Guatemala City welcomed the participants of the Pan American Lectureship. Around 4,000 gathered for worship, and with great Guatemalan hospitality the all were feed lunch. Thank you to our Guatemalan sisters and brother!
Several came asking for prayer and four requested baptism into Christ.

their love for Christ on the airwaves, Internet, and other media platforms.

     Who are they?

They are the future ministers and leaders for the Church of Christ in Latin America who studying at the Baxter Institute in Honduras.
Sixty-one students attended the 2 day workshop, along with several local preachers.
How do you write for the ear?
How do you share Christ with an audience you can’t see?
How do you present yourself to a radio station to
contract airtime for your Christ-centered program?
These and many other topics kept the discussions lively.
Personal stories were told as the scripts were written and recorded.  Some giggled with nervousness as they began to record while
others cried tears of sorrow as they shared their midnight struggles with a sick child.

that our program La Voz Alegre, The Happy Voice, airs on every Sunday night.
Time for a test drive
How clear is the radio’s reception around the country?
 
Preachers from all over Cuba were given a solar radio to gather “intel” on where the program La Voz Alegre, The Happy Voice, can be heard.  Is the signal clear on the western end of the island or better in the central zones?
Solar radios. Yeah! No more expensive and hard to find
batteries. 
The radio holds a 12 hour charge from the sun.  
 
Everyone wants to give it a try!
 
Future Use: These results will guide our development plans on how to use this evangelism tool to share the message of Christ.
 
Please pray for this effort and the preachers
who carry the Word out to the people of Cuba.

Reaching out to the Latin American World

Were any people saved at the Youth Conference in Cuba?
Yes, Yes, and Yes! There were 25 baptisms and many
rededicated their lives to Christ.
The feeling of renewal and encouragement brought a special light
to everyone’s eyes. Laughter and joy were seen and heard everywhere as the young people from all over Cuba arrived by cars,trains,trucks, and busses for
this once-a-year spiritual event.
So many people experienced a new beginning in Christ. This brought
hope to everyone involved in the conference: teens, chaperons, travelers from the
states…everyone!
“Real Love” in contrast to superficial love was
taught and experienced throughout the week.
Where do I go from here? Spiritual growth begins by
developing a stronger faith and personal relationship with Jesus. Let the Word
of God live powerfully in all of us.
Lives were changed eternally!
Thank you Madison Church of Christ for sponsoring and
blessing the Youth Conference in Cuba. Thank you CPI partners and friends for
your support and prayers!
More Good News! Solar radios programmed with the entire Old and New Testament were freely shared and gratefully received.

 

A first reaction?
“Wow, that will be great for Freddie, our brother in
the church who is blind!
Now he will be able to hear God’s word anytime he wants
to.”
