Iglesia Bautista Resurreccion

Requested: 9/22/2018
Requested by: Ana Maria Gonzalez Silva
Pastor: Samuel Betancourt Hernandez
City: Marti, Cuba

This church serves as a hub for 3 missionary camps that are located 12, 5, and 2 miles away from the church. Currently, the missionaries walk to each camp hoping for a private driver to offer them a ride (most of the time they are not offered a ride because of the high number of hitchhikers in the area). One of the missionaries is over 50. Reliable cost-effective transportation is currently their greatest need as it will be used to reach lost souls. Marti also suffers from frequent power outages. The power fails every time it rains, and can frequently last over 5 hours. The church supplies many meals to the community, however, the food spoils every time there is a long-term power outage.

Critical Needs
Electric Moped/Scooter capable of traveling at least 30 miles per charge. (fuel version is acceptable but expensive to operate).

2 or 3 kWh Fuel Efficient Electric Generator

Mountain Bikes (to facilitate the transportation of missionaries to remote areas in Cuba that are not accessible by vehicles).

Other Requests:

Children’s Ministry: Crayons, clown costumes, biblical story items, illustrated bibles, markers, glue, erasers, rulers, markers, soccer balls, volleyball, and baseball equipment: gloves (both hands), bats, balls and catcher’s gear.

A/V Equipment: Microphones, self-powered speakers, projector, laptop, microphone cables, and mixer.

Permanent Storage Container Delivered!

Our capacity to receive donations has just expanded!

Today we took delivery of a 20′ shipping container that will be used as a dedicated storage unit for all type 2 (tangible goods) donations we receive for this ministry. Its permanent home on the church property will make it convenient for our volunteers to fill it with donations as they are dropped off or delivered.

Thank you Tropic Trailer for the price reduction, and a bigger thank you to the leadership of Gospel Baptist Church for allowing us to install it on the church property.

Iglesia Bautista DIOS es Amor (with Pictures)

Requested: 7/22/2018
Requested by: Samuel Rivera
Pastor: Dariel Llanes Quintana
City: San José de las Lajas, Cuba

This church is located in a densely populated metropolitan area. The pastor of this church is the current President of the Convencion Bautista Cuba Occidental (Baptist Convention of Western Cuba). This church’s facilities and ability to obtain equipment are much better than what you would normally see in Cuba. They consider themselves to be blessed, and feel as if they should not be asking for anything considering how blessed they are compared to other churches. We encouraged them to make their needs known anyway as this church and it’s members have been instrumental in helping us setup our distribution network in Cuba.
