Did you know there are thousands of Baptists in Cuba? We don’t hear much about them here in the United States, but Southern Baptists have sent many hundreds of volunteers to Cuba to partner with them.
Now, here’s another chapter in that story.
A while back, the Cuban Baptists sent out their first overseas missionaries to Ecuador, on the northeastern side of South America. They worked with Johnny Maust, one of our missionaries serving in Ecuador.
In fact, Johnny helped baptize six of the people the Cuban missionaries led to faith in Christ as they worked together.
Isn’t it great that, because of our faith in Jesus Christ, we can partner in so many ways to help get the gospel to people who need to hear?
We Baptists here in this state partner with Baptists in all the other 50 states to help send missionaries like Johnny to the mission field. Sharing to send missionaries — that’s what we call the Cooperative Program. Now, let us pray for our missionary Johnny and his Cuban Baptist partners.
