A LIVE SCHOOL STORY
September 7, 2022
Guantanamo is one of the poorest provinces of Cuba.
Pastor D is a church leader there. He leads and oversees eight house churches with a vision to spread the gospel in this region. In Cuba, building new church buildings is not permitted, so most churches are in people’s homes (huts).
Two years ago, Pastor D was introduced to Live School and since then he has started four Live Schools in his churches. His vision is to start another ten schools.
One of the Pastor’s men, a Live School student named L, had a secular job.
After hearing teaching by Live School founder Willie Crew, L understood the urgency of winning souls. This led him to resign from his job so he could work full-time in the ministry.
His aim was to oversee two churches. He wanted to do this even though he knew he would not be paid a salary. Considering that the two churches were in Guantanamo’s poorest municipality of Maisi, this was a huge step of faith.
After being trained as a Live School facilitator, L began to oversee the two churches.
They are in a mountainous area, so both are difficult to reach. Just getting there involves so much physical exertion.
His weekly routine is walking four kilometers up into the hills with a bulky television on his shoulders to get to the first church. Most schools in this region do not have cellphone signals or electricity so he also carries a solar panel. He spends a day with the students in that church completing five Live School lessons together. The next day, he picks up the television and solar panel to walk to the next church and repeat the process. The following week, he repeats this journey again and continues to do this until the students have completed all 242 hours of curricula.
Now imagine… Pastor D has five more men who do the same kind of ministry as L and he is now training up another twelve!
These brothers and sisters display a level of commitment that is truly humbling.
L trusts God for every meal every day. There are many people who do the same thing in Cuba and other nations.
Perhaps you would consider a ministry in your area of the world like the one L has? Live School can give you the training you need to become a co-laborer with God in reaching the lost.
As Jesus’ final directive, it’s greater than you think. The Great Commission represents Jesus’ parting words to His disciples…
It is true that some workplace situations have restrictions on employees sharing their faith when they are on the job. I know this because I once had a boss who restricted me from witnessing at work.
