Cuba June 2022

 The people of Cuba have inspired us and rebuked us many times. Inspired because they are positive, focused on God’s grace and goodness;  rebuked because they do not complain about their hardships (average income US$30 per month).   (The billboard in the picture says something like Fatherland or death; we are invincible).    Our books … Continue reading Cuba June 2022
