We are excited to have become uniquely connected to Cuba through partners we met during our 2007 trip to South Africa, as well as through Ignite Founder Judy Fox's role of assisting the National Volleyball Team of Nicaragua. We look forward to seeing the doors open to return to Cuba and are thankful for the opportunities that lie ahead. These people are not an enemy, regardless of what political divides exist. We ask that you pray for Cuba and her wonderful people! Here are updates from our sport ministry outreach partners in Cuba:
“I returned last Friday from our event. We trained 18 new leaders in sports outreach. Recently we ran a kids games program in a secular school with 80 unbelievers’ children. 85 people accepted ...in an outreach trip and in the softball games all the players accepted .... We run a kids baseball tournament with 6 teams and all player received a discipleship during the event by their coaches.
Right now we are running a soccer tournament with 14 teams with unbelievers’ players but each coach is christian. In this year I used the World Baseball Classic for to use the big screen and a testimony of a high profile in 4 communities. Around 70 people heard the Word and 25 accepted.... We did 12 outreach trips to 11 or the 15 provinces. Approximately 140 leaders were training in how to serve the community through Sport. We run two Sport Camps for kids and youths.”
