Who? Ten Members of Holy Cross
What? A Mission Trip to Matanzas, Cuba
When? 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.
Team members are working together to raise the $17,000 needed to support this trip by Wednesday, November 23rd. contact Dave Huempfner at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions about this mission.
This is our first Mission to Cuba at Holy Cross, but our Partner organizer Experience Missions has provided the following video to give an idea what our missionaries can expect going to Cuba.
