Mission Cuba

I am sending out this message to a few of you in order to share an opportunity that has been presented to me. I have been asked to be one of the speakers at a national leadership conference in Cuba.  So I am seeking those who would like to partner with me in this trip. It’s funny, all the twists and turns life throws at us and without God how could we possibly survive?  I know some of you have followed our books and articles that we have started posting and may or may not know this but we have transitioned from pastoring to Rubicon Ministries.

Helen Keller in 1940 wrote a book entitled, “Let Us Have Faith”  within the book there is a chapter called “Faith Fears Not” which I have taken a quote from and I hope it ministers to you.

“Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. The fearful are caught as often as the bold. Faith alone defends. Life is either a daring adventure or nothing. To keep our faces toward change and behave like free spirits in the presence of fate is strength undefeatable.”

Usually you have heard it quoted as “life is either an adventure or nothing at all” but I want to point out to you the next sentence, ”To keep our faces toward change and behave like free spirits in the presence of fate is strength undefeatable.”  For all of us to face changes happening in our lives and keep our faith gives us an undefeatable edge in life.

Just thought I would throw that in this message for all of you who thought I was going to present just your normal asking for prayer and money request. But the truth is I would not have thought I would be going to Cuba again. My prayer and hope was that God would allow me to go again. I have never been so affected by a group of people such as I encountered in Cuba last January. They were so alive and not just alive but on fire. To see their faith while being persecuted for being Christian was life changing for me. Now I have the opportunity to go back and minister as one of the speakers to 400-500 leaders from all over the nation. I cannot wait. So yes I am asking for your prayers in covering this trip and if you would consider being a financial support as well. The conference will be Oct.16-20 and the cost will be 700.00 counting airfare and all (food, transportation, hotel, visa). This will be a great opportunity to meet many of the leaders in hopes of working with them on future trips to help and serve the Cuban people. So if you could keep me covered in prayer and pray about financially supporting this trip I would so appreciate it.

If you are giving financially you can make checks out to Rubicon Ministries and mail to P.O.Box 21821, Lexington KY. 40522 or you can text the amount to 859-279-4090.

May the Lord bless you and continue to strengthen you body, soul and spirit. In your service Kim Carroll
