Hello Church Family,
We just returned from a visit with the churches in Ranchuelo and Zulueta. Over the years, Clarksburg Baptist Church has played an important part in the formation and growth of these churches. Both are doing very well.
Tuesday night, I preached in Zulueta. The church in Zulueta has an important outreach to children in the community. Each week, the children come to the church for choir and Bible study. Additionally, thanks to a gift from an individual at CBC, these children receive a light healthy lunch when they come. For some of these children, it is the most substantial meal they have all day.
The church in Ranchuelo has a very strong presence in an apartment complex. The church meets in the pastor´s apartment for many activities and worship. In addition, they care for the needs of those in the complex; members and non-members alike. Gifts from groups and individuals at CBC have helped to improve both the ministry of the church and the church facility itself. Enlarging the kitchen area, made possible by CBC, allows them to host outreach events on their patio.
Last summer, two LifeGroups from CBC made it possible for the El Jordan Baptist Church, in Havana, to have a family camp, last August and for this coming August. The pastors of the church have shared with me what a success the camp was and how grateful they are that it will be funded for the coming year. They have shared pictures and stories with me that I will bring home to share.
Thank you for your interest in, and support of, our mission efforts in Cuba.
