This is a new opportunity for us. I went to Cuba in September 2015 to help train pastors that are part of the Methodist denomination. I returned in February 2016. These are people who have stayed strong through many adversities. Another trip is planned for September 2016.
This is Pastor Dwayne Higgason and I in front of a Fort in Cuba. I mention his name quite a bit in my newsletters, because he is always doing something with me. We have traveled around the world together. He is the pastor of Grace Temple in Hattiesburg, MS and a man who believes in leading his church in missions. He does not just send them, he leads them. I have seen him work till he gives completely out, then stand up to preach that night. The Bible teaches us about friends that stick closer than a brother. Dwayne is that to me. I am blessed to call him my friend. I would suggest other pastors follow his example and start leading your church into missions. I know he would be willing to have a conversation with you if you are interested in stretching your congregation and seeing them fulfill the Great Commission.
