CUBAN PASTOR'S TESTIMONY
Recently in a meeting when we were discussing the impact of the Christian Worker Bible Study Series around the world, I recalled the time when our Bible studies were introduced into the nation of Cuba in the mid-nineties. At that time we had met a Cuban pastor and his wife who were involved in conducting marriage seminars throughout their nation in order to help stem the tide of a high divorce rate among Cuban families.
Our published five part Bible study series on the Christian family attracted their attention. In response to their request, we were able to partner with them and they began to produce the studies in country using these studies as follow up materials to their marriage seminars. Later on they used more of the Bible lessons and introduced them as a basic course of study for all new converts.
It was shortly after this that we were made aware of a testimony of another pastor who also was conducting marriage seminars under the mentorship of the above-mentioned pastor.
At a celebration banquet which was held at the conclusion of each marriage seminar, a grateful man approached the pastor with the following words: " I am a member of the Communist party and I don't claim to be a Christian, but I want to thank you for saving my marriage!" We don't know what eventually happened to this person; however, the Word of God is a powerful seed that has the potential of producing fruit in all kinds of soil!
