I was given the chance to participate in a mission trip for an eight-person team from St. Matthews United Methodist Church in Virginia to go to a Methodist Church in Santa Clara, Cuba. We were told that it was a little painting and some masonry work. It turned out to be heavy work busting reinforced concrete out with hand tools.
I’m going to devote a section of my blog to writing about my experiences. There are too many little stories that I don’t want to lose and want to share. These are all my perspective and how I feel from a limited exposure to the people of Cuba. I will try to post these as often as time allows. The experience was wonderful and look forward to the day of open relationships so I can bring my family to meet Pastor Yordi’s family and the work I did.
Today, I can say that I have gone to Cuba, touched the foundation of a church so it can expand, and been touched by God in a most unexpected way.
