Cuba (Mission Network News) — As relationships between Cuba and the United States change, John Summerville of Trans World Radio says things aren’t the same for the people of Cuba any more.
“For many, many years, the Cuban government has been telling them there is no God [and] that the government has all the answers. Well, people are really coming to realize that the government doesn’t have all the answers, and so they have been very curious and very eager to learn. Because of that, the Christian Church in Cuba has been growing at a very steady and strong pace.”
Yet, although there’s a new hunger for the gospel, there are serious problems with access to basic resources and materials. Things like toilet paper or aspirin are hard to come by, and Summerville says, “Because of that … there’s a huge lack of resources for … biblical materials.”
