A Mission Trip to Matanzas, Cuba
March 18-24, 2017
Our missionaries will discover a place unlike anywhere they’ve ever served, where the local church is vibrant, passionate, and rapidly growing, all under the rule of an anti-religion, communist government. It will be a chance to experience the real Cuba while interacting with Christians and churches of many different denominations, investing in relationships with local people, and serving in a variety of ways.
The trip is being led by parishioner Dave Huempfner and logistics will be arranged by a Christian organization - Experience Missions- that is well-experienced in sending mission groups to Cuba.
Our team will have the opportunity to work alongside community members and show God's love through serving together in many ways. Some of those opportunities will be through a combination of Agricultural Production Ministry projects where we may build additions to supplement the local community’s farm or help plant/harvest mangos, guavas, papayas, and pineapple on this farm. In addition to these service projects our time will also be working on behalf of Jesus through outreach ministries to the local community’s families by conducting a Kids Club and by ministering to those children with mental & physically disabilities.
Please pray to see if you are one of the ten that the Lord is calling to minister on his behalf in Cuba. If you feel God is leading you to be on this team, contact Dave Huempfner at email@example.com. Team members will work together to raise the $17,000 needed to support this trip by Wednesday, November 23rd. There are limited spaces, so sign up soon!
This is our first Mission to Cuba at Holy Cross, but our Partner organizer Experience Missions has provided the following video so that you may have an idea what to expect going to Cuba.
