How You Can Help:

  1. Pray for the people of Cuba and our sister churches! Pray for their health, their daily struggles, that they will have enough food to feed their families today, and for the spiritual and political leaders in both our countries.

  2. Provide Supplies: Our teams take suitcases of over-the-counter (OTC) medications and many other needed items on the annual trips to Cuba (usually in January). You can help by donating items from the “Needs List”, which can be obtained from the church office, our two Cuba Mission bulletin boards found outside of the Worship Center and Sanctuary, or from a committee member.  You can then bring your donated items to a committee member or the church office.  Please make sure it is marked ‘Cuba Missions’.  Please note that we cannot accept prescription medications and that OTC medications cannot expire before the next January, since expired medications cannot be brought into Cuba.

  3. Support financially: We have two events each year to help us raise funds for our Cuba Missions and to also provide updates on this mission to our congregation and supporters.  Aldersgate Sunday, in which we have a special offering, is held in May, and our annual Cuba Dinner is held in September.  We also accept and appreciate donations throughout the year.  If you would like to donate cash or write a check, you mail it to, or drop it off, at the church office, or put it into the offering on Sundays.  Please make sure your donation is marked ‘Cuba Missions’.  Thank you for your continued support and please know that travelers to Cuba pay for their own travel, lodging and meals, so that every penny donated goes directly to support our Cuba Missions.   

  4. Membership: Prospective members are always welcome to attend monthly Cuba Mission meetings on Thursdays at 7pm in Room 108.

Cuba Shuttered

Cuba is not a foreign land to me, it is the home to many that I love as extended family. This photo was taken on the tranquil coast of Gibara, Cuba, and shows a holiday that was cloaked in affection and innocence. There was no talk of politics, hunger, sadness, or pain. 
 
 
We celebrated life together and watched the children play. These two Methodist pastors and their families represent the faces of all who live so geographically close to us but are shuttered in a different universe. 
 
On the right side of the photo are four Suntree UMC ladies. We, and many others, are accustomed to traveling to Cuba each year and emailing daily with many. We can't travel to Cuba at this time and their government-run internet has been closed. We miss our Cuban families and they miss us. 
 
We can pray, "Father, we ask for a hedge of protection for your Cuban churches and people... And as always, Thy will be done."
 
You have no doubt heard on the news this week of the significant problems in Cuba.  They are real. If you would like to help our sister churches, please write a check to Suntree UMC and put "Cuba" in the memo line.

The Gift of Vision

Because of the generosity of our Suntree congregation, we were able to purchase 500 pairs of reader eyeglasses for El Redentor and 300 for Ojo de Agua.


At Ojo, people walked as far as 30 km. to receive a pair of readers at no charge. At El Redentor the entire congregation was served as well as a few of the other churches in the area.

Readers enable people to finally be able to read their own Bibles or even hold down a job. It is an important life-changing item that is not generally available.
