Cuba Engagement Outreach Pray

April 18th, 2024: Prayer Day for the Moravian Church in Cuba

The roots of Moravian ministry in Cuba go back to the late 1990s when Rev. Robert Sawyer (then Southern Province Provincial President) received a letter from a small group of brothers and sisters in Cuba, asking if they could “be Moravians!” The Moravian Church in Cuba is now a Mission Province accompanied by the Southern Province in America and the Board of World Mission. They held a provincial synod in 2023, and consecrated their second bishop in early 2024. Current prayer requests from our siblings in Cuba are as follows:
