Friday, December 17 – Cuba
Church services stopped because of the pandemic, but the spread of the gospel has exploded online. Young people are sharing USB sticks with Christian messages and films supplied by local missionaries, and the content is spreading through WhatsApp groups and other social media. Workers have also distributed Bibles to Santeria cult members, soldiers and others and have seen their lives transformed. With churches closed by pandemic restrictions, local missionaries have divided them into home groups that have grown into five new congregations of about 50 each. Workers need donations to undertake these and other evangelization and discipleship initiatives. Pray for healthy, unified churches.
