ys in cuba

four years ago, i joined lucas leys, our spanish director, for a trip to cuba. amazing time. i watched while lucas presented the CORE to a packed room full of cuban youth workers, then spoke at an evangelistic rally.

our friends in cuba had asked lucas to return and offer training again. but there’s no way for them to pay for this kind of thing, including any of the expenses, really. but lucas suggested, and i agreed, that it was just something we needed to do.

on his return, lucas wrote:

I arrived back from Cuba yesterday midnight after some delays.
We had almost 400 youth workers and was really a blast. You could feel the excitement and the wonder all of the participants had. I am very gald we could do this.

here are a couple photos:

  1. Marko, I can’t tell you how excited I am that YS invested in these folks like that. Keep up the great work.

  2. Hey Marko. We are very glad that our cuban brothers and sisters can be part of such great blessing. Here in Puerto Rico we are excited that youth specialties is advancing to equip different youthworkers on Latin America. Lucas is great and I surely know that our fellow brothers on the island are really hungry for more training. Let’s pray for more opportunities over there.
