Abdias is here...Information from Cuba 081112

Dear Friends of Cuba,

God is so good to us. Our friends Rene and Mabel Dominguez will be going back to Cuba on Thursday. They are so thankful for the hospitality and kindness shown to them while they were in West Palm Beach. God provided opportunities for them to share in many different venues while they were here. This weekend, they will be sharing in Tampa area churches.

Abdias Frometa, from Havana, is in Jacksonville this weekend, visiting with several churches. He will be will be sharing with FBCOrange Park in their morning services tomorrow and in a Spanish congregation that evening.
Abdias, Veronica, Idalmis, Monica
Abdias, will be in services with us, at FBCWPB, next Sunday, Aug. 19th.

He will make classroom visits that morning, as he did on his previous visit to FBCWPB.

We will host a gathering for him here at our home on Sunday afternoon (Aug. 19) for those who would like to hear more about what God is doing in Cuba.

For more information on what is happening in Cuba, see the Fall 2012 Florida Baptist Missions emagazine which contains the article, Fishing for souls in Cuban waters... detailing statistics and information from our contacts in Cuba, Dr. Alberto Gonzalez and his son, David, both of the Western Cuban Baptist Convention.

In 2011, nearly 1,600 people received Christ and 2,632 followed their commitment and were baptized in Cuba. The total of churches in the WCBC has risen to 328 with more than 65,000 believers worshipping together! Around 2,000 missions and house churches were planted in 2011.

The photo in the article is from Mariel, a coastal town known for the 80's Mariel boat lifts. As a result of controls being lifted in Mariel, we have been partnering with 4 churches in this town over these last two years. We are thrilled to see how churches and missions are reaching out and winning souls.

We thank God for missionaries from FBCWPB being actively involved in these exciting results that are making an impact for the Kingdom. Some of your may remember that Dr. Alberto Gonzalez spoke at FBCWPB years ago when he was here on a religious visit.

We are thrilled to have a team representing members from FBC of Orange Park and FBC of West Palm Beach.

Praise God…we have Vacation Bible School materials, entitled Amazing Wonders Aviation for this trip. We plan to share the materials with the 60 + groups we partner with on the island.

Please pray ..we will receive the Cuban religious entry visas for all team members.
We will continue to fly from Ft. Lauderdale to Havana. The Ft. Lauderdale airport is a little closer and less congested than Miami.

We are collecting school supplies, new socks and underwear for students from KG to 12th grades, medicine, food and other resources to bring on this trip. We have a lot to do before we go. Pray that we will pack well and fill every space in the bags!

Please pray for the 6 missionaries on the team:
