In 1995, I felt God speak to me and say "Go to Cuba." I didn't know why, but soon I was on a plane.
What I saw there shook me up. I saw a country caught in a time warp. Survival was an everyday scramble. It's beaches were white, but the tourists no longer filled them. Its buildings were in serious need of paint.
Still, the Cuban people were wonderful. As I talked to local followers of Christ, I saw an amazing faith and deep commitment to prayer. I came away after a week there inspired. I loved the Cuban people and I had the sense that one day, when their country was open to Americans again, we would have a chance to learn from their faith.
For 21 years I've waited for that opening to come. And I'm excited to tell you that the time is NOW. Because of the agreement recently signed between our two countries, you can now fly directly from cities like Atlanta and Miami to Havana and you can do so inexpensively.
I want to invite you to discover what I discovered all those years ago - a country that, while hidden from view, has so much to give.
Knowing this moment was coming, Adventures has been preparing. For the last four years, we have been carefully laying the groundwork to take you and your group to Cuba. We have worked at a governmental level to get permissions, at a church strategy level, and at a local village level to give you the home stays and authentic experience where you can share God’s love with the Cuban people.
Adventures has a rich history of breaking new ground and responding to Kingdom opportunity. When Hurricane Katrina hit, we mobilized 4,000 people to help New Orleans in the first year. When Haiti experienced an earthquake, we took hundreds of volunteers to help it rebuild.
We have a network of people-to-people projects throughout Cuba ready for you and your group. The door may have been closed for a long time, but today it is open. The time to share the hope of Jesus is now.
Yours for the journey,
Since the oppression of the Communist Revolution in 1959, the nation of Cuba has experienced severe economic depression. Its people are hungry for hope.
Officially, Cuba is a secular nation. There is no national religion, although about 59% of the population would consider themselves Catholic by name only. There is no organized faith. While it isn't illegal to be a Christian in Cuba, until recently they couldn’t openly share the Gospel. Christians lived in secret, and many experienced persecution.
Today, the Cuban Church is thriving, and is full of hope for what God is doing in their nation. Because they cannot build church buildings, churches meet in homes, sometimes spilling over into hallways and balconies, their worship resounding in the streets.
Much like the First Church in Acts, the Church in Cuba is multiplying at a rapid rate. The hope and freedom of Christ is filling the nation, bringing people to Him for the first time in almost 60 years.
Adventures has been praying for 21 years for an open door to freely enter and share the Gospel in Cuba. We started sending teams in 2012, before the Embargo even lifted, partnering with a church planting ministry that has started over a 100 churches throughout the country—and has even sent missionaries as far as Uganda and Ecuador.
Now that Cuba is officially open to Americans, we are partnering with them in an even greater capacity. With a growing church network, members hungry for encouragement from Christians across the world, and so many Cubans who have never heard the Gospel, this literally is a once in a lifetime opportunity to see God shatter the oppression of the past and set Cuba free.
The door is finally open. Be among the first to openly share the Gospel in Cuba in over 50 years.
