Shalimar has been actively involved in sending missionaries to Cuba for the past 4 years. Typically, we send a team of no more than 12 missionaries, to evangelize with the Cuban Methodist community, work on projects such as building parsonages, temples, etc. and put on VBS for the kids. We also visit the Methodist Old Folks home, the Methodist Seminary in Havana, and our Sister Church in Guatao. We continue to build a lasting relationship with our Cuban Brothers and Sisters.
The Cuban Trips are typically during the summer months…. this coming year 2018 it will be in July. We normally spend 10-12 days on the trip. Trip costs have maintained around $1300 per person for the last 3 years. Amount of the trip varies on transportation costs.
Missionaries are expected to help with collecting donations, needed tools, supplies and craft materials. Once collected we spend time packing during our trip preparation. Each Missionary is assigned a job, like, manage devotions, photographer, music coordinator, construction manager, finance support, donation coordinator, packing manager and gift coordinator. It is truly a team effort!
