Outdoor Evangelism in Cuba

I received a report that our church partners in Cuba held their first outdoor evangelistic service since the 1950’s with over 10,000 people in attendance. Hundreds of people came forward to receive Christ.  The next day, people brought their idols and smashed them to show their devotion to Christ alone.  We praise God for this report and that Bright Hope’s allies who supported this meeting.

This news was such an encouragement to me.  Cuba has been under pressure and oppression.  Matthew 16:18 comes to mind “… on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell will not overcome it.”  God’s mighty hand was upon our church partners.

We are in the last few days of our fiscal year and I’ve seen God display His goodness through so many of our church partnerships, as well as in the lives of our allies.  Please join me in celebrating our answered prayers for the poor and persecuted, and watch as God builds His church and expands our impact over the coming months.

On Saturday we will close our books for the end of the fiscal year.  Please consider a year end gift for the few projects that still need funding.

  1. Do you have first hand information about this event. I have just returned from two weeks of ministry in Cuba and have e-mailed several pastors who should be in the loop on this and none can confirm it took place. It would truly be a miracle if this size gathering of Christians was allowed by local or national authorities.

    • Hi Jack, Thanks for your question. Yes, we know the pastors and ministry leaders involved. We should have an offline conversation about the location in Cuba and see who we both know and who can confirm this for you. I am out of the office until July 19th and have only limited access to the Internet. Hence, the late reply. Hope to talk with you soon.


  2. I’m sorry to inform you that you have erroneously stated that this was the FIRST “open air-outdoor evangelism in Cuba. The FIRST one took place in the summer of 1999. You can verify this with Johnathan Cahn, the author of the book “The Harbinger.” I know this, because I was there with him when they conducted the FIRST “Open air-outdoor” evangelistic meetings EVER in Cuba under the current Communist regime. A REVIVAL of “supernatural” miracles, along with signs and wonders, and thousands of salvations. And by the way, we had one “outdoor meeting” in EVERY PROVINCE (there are 18 of them) in Cuba!

    God bless,

    • Hi Andy,
      Thanks for your note. As I wrote in my post, this was our church partner’s first out door evangelistic crusade. I did not want to imply that this was the first ever. I am glad you are interested in Cuba and I hope you continue to preach the Gospel and help those living in poverty.


  3. Praise the Lord! It’s really encouraging to read reports like this and realize God is moving wonderfully in those places where at one time the gospel wasn’t freely allowed.
