Midweek Message, March 9, 2016

All the brothers and sisters send greetings. Greet one another with a holy kiss. I Corinthians 16:20

Greetings from our brothers and sisters in Las Parras, Cuba! This past week this passage from I Corinthians was ringing in my mind every day as Marjorie Burnett and I were greeted with a holy kiss everywhere we went in the Christian community of Cuba. The church members at La Roca de Salvation asked me to tell you hello and how grateful they are for the most generous gift and our continued relationship.

The funds for the purchase of a new parsonage for our sister church were put in the bank in Cuba. They hope to complete the purchase by the end of April. Marjorie and I walked through the “new” parsonage. It is a MUCH nicer house with much more room. The best thing is that it is off the main corner of town and away from the bar, bus station, and truck stop! The constant noise at the “old” parsonage is unbelievable. Thank-you for making this a reality for our brothers and sisters in Cuba!

Don’t forget that this is “Match Sunday”. We have the opportunity to have our special gifts matched dollar for dollar this week. Just use one of the Match Sunday envelopes for your gift. This is how we have balanced our budget the past few years and we need all the help we can get this year!
