Churches of Christ are growing in Cuba.
More than 250 preachers and church leaders gathered in the Cuban city of Matanzas for the 12th annual National Preachers Conference for Churches of Christ.
The Mayfair Church of Christ in Huntsville, Ala., underwrites the cost of the event each year. Juan Antonio Monroy from Madrid, Spain, led a five-man team from Abilene, Texas-based Herald of Truth at the conference.

    So glad to hear that this good work is continuing and growing in Cuba. I respect the efforts so much and would love to know how I might be a part of this great mission. . . .perhaps with the experiences learned from Ciudad de Angeles in Mexico.

    I am very much greatful to hear this wonderful news about the confrence in Cuba that brought togather about 250 preachers and Church leaders,and also hearing about Juan Antony Monroy of Spain whom i think is responsible for Church growth in Spanish world. I believe that the majority of those in that confrence are spanish speaking missionaries and preachers. I am thankful for them all for there wonderful works and at the same time letting them know that MALABO, GUINEA EQUATORIAL,the only spanish speaking country in Africa needs there help. They should come over to G. E. and help us. The entire country of G.E. has only one church of chrirt, of which i am the preacher.

    My dear brother, I do not think that Juan Antonio Monroy is the responsible for all the grow of the church of Christ in Cuba, but our almighty God, I think as a Cuban,just to tell you that in the year 1991 there were only 9 churches in Cuba, then the first factor was Baxter Institute with its CELO from Honduras, thru Julio Alfonso, Harry Goodwin, Luis Medina, Julio wast he the first one with the vision of getting the word of God to everyone and taking the starting of new churches, starting with me, in Canasi Church of Christ, the church number 9, secondly Jamaica School of Preaching, thru Luis Pedraza, Francis Yorke, Gladwyn Kiddoe, third it has been World Bible School, thru Luis Alberto Echevarria and Joe Romero, all of us moving all around the country for thousand and thousands of miles, sleeping anywhere the night gets you and training preachers and doing campaigns all around, and finally Sunset School of Preaching, thru Roberto Pino, and the most of all is our God for He is who has given the grown.
    Not man deserves that honor, it has been God’s plan.
    First of all pray hard to the Lord and He will do the miracle.
    In Him
