This spring break, a team of 10 Palm Beach Atlantic University students went to Havana, Cuba, and stayed at a local church. We participated in a construction project for a church sanctuary that one of the church members is adding onto his house.
The team also spent a lot of time with the youth of the church. Even though we don’t speak the same language, God truly blessed these relationships. He broke down the language barrier and let friendships bloom.
One of the days, our team went into Old Havana. While shopping, Brady Jo Holland, Chris Piedra, and I got to pray with a woman right in her little booth. It was such a great divine appointment and the woman was really encouraged by it.
When we left, there were many tears from our team and the people of the church. We continue to e-mail them and pray that we will be able to return to our friends in Cuba.
