Some students from Oklahoma Wesleyan University visited Cuba earlier this year. The students got to talk with a Cuban pastor, members of a church youth group, and other Cuban Christians. Read previous posts about their trip here and here.
A member of the visiting group shared what she saw and learned with The Voice of the Martyrs. Part of her story is below.
“It was especially nice for me to see a window into what children do. We were walking on the sidewalk as three children kicked around a plastic bottle lid on the concrete trying to keep it away from each other….They’ve got to have such imaginations.
“It was interesting to hear a Christian discuss how she had been taken by the police and when she returned to [the place where her group was meeting], it was packed and they held their worship service. Another Christian said if he’d been arrested, then the police would have been converted!
“The connection these people have with one another and the love that seems to bind them together is wonderful to see.”
