Overview

Niquero is a remote coastal town in the southeast portion of the island of Cuba. It is a rural location with warm and friendly people who are curious and interested in the gospel. It is one of the poorest countries in the Caribbean with a low GDP average. It is a country of great need, and God will use you to make a huge difference in Niquero. The Conference there is very mission minded and fully cooperative in our evangelistic efforts. The area is very ripe for a harvest. Medical work will be very effective in this area, and we will run a clinic in the mornings where professionals can consult with patients. At night, we will conduct evangelism and children’s programming. People of all ages and skill levels are needed.
