Twenty years in missions, thanks to a miracle of God!

There are many reasons why I continue to serve with ACTION, including the interdenominational approach to missions work, the family atmosphere, and the passion, dedication and godly living that I see in my ministry colleagues. But […]

Ministering to children with cancer

Thank you for praying for our trip to Cuba last month. It was amazing. Spending time with each of the three families that serve full-time with ACTION Cuba was extremely important. Since we formalized our team just one year ago, God has blessed us with new connections, new projects, and a host of new invitations […]

God’s protection as tires blow out

David Gomero is our official representative in western Cuba and he celebrated his birthday on the November 5th. I had arranged for David’s wife and daughters to spend that day with him at the famous Varadero beach along with ACTION missionaries Keith & Marilyn Kaynor. This was their one off-day between conferences and we rented […]

Not “give and take” but give and give

Dear Friends of the Church in Cuba, Ministry is not an exchange. It is not a transaction. The people being ministered to do not — and cannot — contribute toward the cost of the blessings that are provided. One example: our book sets that are handed out at each conference. A five-book set costs between […]

Donations for our bike project have doubled this year

Many pastors we work with travel long distances on foot and on public transportation in order to minister at the churches and mission stations they are responsible for. A bike allows a pastor to accomplish more by reducing his travel time between home and church, and helps him visit more people from his congregation. It […]

Our friend and colleague Alexeis Rodríguez was robbed

Dear Friends, Today brought terribly disheartening news from my good friend Alexeis Rodríguez, director of the UGECU* student ministry in Cuba. Returning home after a ministry trip to one of the college groups, they discovered their home had been robbed. Most of their valuable items were stolen, even their washing machine! They lost their rice […]

The poor have the Gospel preached to them

I’m sure you are familiar with the phrase “save the best for last.” In any sort of persuasive writing or speech, such as a legal argument, debate, or essay, the best practice is to start with your weakest argument and gradually escalate until you finish with your strongest point at the end of your presentation.

Practical words of widsom from pastor Pat Franks

Practical words of widsom from pastor Pat Franks

I always enjoy traveling with men who are much more experienced than me in life and in spiritual matters. One of my favorite messages from 43 trips to Cuba was by Dr, Harold Sala entitled “What They Didn’t Teach Me in Seminary.” I appreciated hearing practical wisdom from a man who has ministered 30 years […]
