Ministries discuss future of Cuba work

Churches of Christ that have worked independently on the island nation of Cuba are taking steps to unify their efforts.
Herald of Truth has sponsored several gospel events in Cuba, and theministry hosted a recent meeting in Nashville, Tenn., for ministriesworking on the island.
Represented at the meeting were Sunset International Bible Institute,World Christian Broadcasting, Healing Hands International, ChristianProductions International, the Mayfair church in Huntsville, Ala., theEast Tallasee church in Tallassee, Ala., the Central church in Sparta,Tenn., the Karnes church in Knoxville, Tenn. and the Sylvan Hillschurch in Sherwood, Ark.
Cuba is home to about 120 Churches of Christ with a combined membershipof 4,000 to 5,000, said Rudy Wray, dean of ministry training for PanAmerica at Sunset in Lubbock, Texas. Meeting regularly will helpAmerican supporters of the work in Cuba share information and betterserve Cuban believers, Wray said.
The group also talked about the future of ministry in Cuba in light ofnews reports about the failing health of Fidel Castro, the head ofCuba’s government since the 1959 revolution that brought him to power.
It’s difficult to know what — if any — changes will occur in Cuba afterCastro’s death, Wray said. But he said members who support work on theisland hope “to do what we can … to help our brothers in Cuba inwhatever situation they find themselves.”
