“The early church is still walking and running around the streets of my Cuba.”
With a population of more than 11 million people just ninety miles off the coast of Florida, Cuba was once considered the “paradise of the Caribbean,” welcoming tourists from around the world. Today, its history, culture, and faith are shrouded in legend and myth.
But God has not abandoned Cuba. He is present, active, and igniting both revival in the church and awakening across this beautiful island.
In this episode, we talk with Cuban natives Pastor Carlos Alamino and his son Carly about their thirty-plus years of planting churches and creating relevant gospel ministries to children, students, women, and sports enthusiasts.
You’ll also hear about Proclaim Cuba’s strong work in discipleship and ministry training and its vision to plant seven hundred new churches and eighteen ministry hubs across Cuba.
