Friendship and revelations

Two different worlds in one month.Russia: cold and quite peopleCuba: hot and open people The first three days in Havana were really hard for me, because the hot weather and the long walks made me so exhausted. So from this point I started to hope that the next three weeks will go quickly. After a twelve hour truck drive and first meeting with the Gladios members I started to enjoy this time. We had the privilege to build new friendships with them and work in the organisation and their church. In our free time we discovered Santiago de Cuba, enjoyed old overloaded buses and we  ate a lot of icecream. It is so admirable to see how the christians in cuba live with so less and God showed me that he gives so much more than worldly things. Through biblestudy and devotions God gave me so many revelations and answers for all my prayers and worries, so I learned a lot in this time about Him and myself. I had on my heart to discover the book of James and through this God revealed a lot of truth and useful tips for me to use in my life. It is definitely worth to read James! I am so thankful that God is completely changing my life and giving me a real purpose! I Give all the praise and glory to Him!  "You say you have faith, for you believe that there is one God. Good for you! Even the demons believe this and they tremble in terror. How foolish! Can't you see that faith without good deeds is useless?" James 2:19-20 We are not doing good deeds, because we follow the law, we are doing it because Jesus Christ is living in us and He gives us joy in it! Amen brother! Thanks for reading and have a nice day!

He greets me with grace.

The journey of grace started in Russia and by the end of Cuba while sitting in a coffee shop drinking coffee that tastes like sea water and being told to keep quiet by the waitress because we laughing too loud, God concluded the first part of an unending series of His grace.

Viva Cuba

Viva Cuba

Our time in Cuba was almost like a time warp going back to the early 1950’s, vintage cars, horse carriages, music on every comer, no internet and street vendors everywhere. What an experience and privilege to have had a month in Cuba. We faced the language barrier with body gestures and our Spanish booklets. Embraced every moment and laughed a lot with those first country giggles when you still in shock that you’ve left South Africa.

God's love in Cuba

Santiago, a bustling city filled with motorbikes, trucks, horse carriages, musicians, street dancers, stray dogs, food trollies, markets and anything in between. There's no room for a misplaced foot . You can delight in a local delicacy about every 50m and the cheap ice-cream brought out that ice-cream-loving-kid in all of us.

An Exchanged Life in Cuba

One month in Cuba... The realization that we would be in a communist country for a month dawned on me like a cold shower on a winter's morning. To be perfectly honest, I had a multitude of preconceived ideas before coming to Cuba. Prejudices birthed out of ignorance and lack of knowledge. Biases that could turn one month in a foreign country into a month of turmoil and negativity. 

In the beginning, I thought I had Cuba all figured out. It's a communist country, so of course everyone would be morbid and depressed. I was so wrong. So very very wrong.
