Cuba, 2014, Part Five

December 12, 2014

A day of helping and visiting some of the great sights of Cuba. We start of the day by picking up Oamilda and Marlen who are church planters for the Nazarene Church in Pinar del Rio and giving them a ride to the town of Vinales where they are sharing the gospel with the local people. We met them at the El Jaguey Church of the Nazarene in Pinar del Rio.

From there we all went to Vinales where we dropped off the two church planters, did some shopping and had lunch before continuing our journey.

After lunch we proceeded to a large rock formation outside the city where we had the opportunity to visit the “Cueva del Indio”, which means “Cave of the Indian”. We started on a walking tour through the cave and part way through we boarded a boat in an underground river for the balance of the tour. The boat exited the cave into a small lake where we disembarked.

We did some shopping at the park by the cave and were able to walk around and see some of the beauty of Cuba.

After the visit to the Cave of the Indian we were off to the north coast of the island to scout San Cayetano and Puerto Esperanza for potential of sending Cuban missionaries and planting new missions. We went through rolling hills and a mountain range and finally arrived at the Caribbean Sea where there was a beautiful white sand beach. We couldn’t resist so it was in the water for a refreshing dip and then a walk on the beach to see some more of the wonders of Cuba.

I certainly can agree with Gods assessment of the land here in Cuba when he said in Genesis 1:10 “God called the dry ground “land,” and the gathered waters he called “seas.” And God saw that it was good.” and in Genesis 1:12 “The land produced vegetation: plants bearing seed according to their kinds and trees bearing fruit with seed in it according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good.”

After a refreshing dip in the Caribbean and a walk on the beach it was back in the bus for the trip back to the city. We had reservations for dinner at a small restaurant near the town of Vinales. After a great meal it was back to Pinar del Rio for a good nights sleep. Cubans call Pinar del Rio “The green poem of Cuba”…after today we now know why.
