Few Americans have traveled to modern Cuba. But I had the privilege of visiting there in August 2011, right before some of the travel restrictions for Americans were lifted. Because we did not travel with a tour group, we had a credible view of real Cuban life.
I loved our visit there. The country's faded but regal beauty was visually appealing and its people were warm and welcoming. But the message of socialism is the only public advertising you'll see there. (Cuba may be one of the few places on earth that is not branded with Coca-Cola signs).
My prayer is that one day the gospel will be the most prominent message of Cuba. I hope you will join me in that prayer. In the meantime, here is a poetic short film we created after our visit. May it inspire your intercession!
