"I just wanted to let you know what an honor and a privilege it was to participate in your ministry. My experiences on this trip have left a permanent mark on my soul. The 'Cuba for Christ' ministry is on very solid footing and is doing impressive things in the face of less than favorable odds. You have some true warriors on the front lines there that are carrying out God’s message each day. Their sacrifice, determination and passion are truly moving and inspiring."

"Amazing" is all we can say about the July mission to Jicamarca, Peru! The team accomplished great feats for the kingdom and left a piece of their heart behind, hoping to return in the near future. Check out the photos here! Three team members stayed behind in Jicamarca to put up the new church building, as the container was delayed. The church is now up and Iglesia Vida is enjoying His abundant blessings!
