This Just In!

Check in often for the newest report from around the world on the blessings provided by HELIOS.

The first week of February a team of five intrepid Americans was in CUBA to distribute 4,000 HELIOS CT “Talking Thru the Christian Faith” Spanish devices.  God’s blessing was evident every minute of every day.

We have been preparing for this week for more than 2 years.  I made 2 exploratory trips to CUBA in 2014 to assess both the need of untrained pastors and the feasibility of distributing HELIOS CT throughout the island.  Dr. George Miller III, Senior Pastor of the North Syracuse Baptist Church and the vice-chairman of the Woodrow Kroll Ministries board of directors, opened the doors for us with the Cuban government.  He and his church have been ministering in CUBA for several years and he is well respected by the Cuban Director of Religious Affairs.

I wanted to share some of the photos that demonstrate both the critical need in CUBA among pastors and church leaders who are completely untrained in the Bible and Christian faith and the brilliant way in which The HELIOS Projects are meeting that need.

Of course, 4,000 HELIOS CT Spanish devices was only enough for the pastors in 4 of the 14 Cuban provinces.  That means we must return in the fall with an additional 5,000 units.

Since the units are $120 each for an entire course of 200 sessions of teaching (each session being 20-22 minutes), we must find partners who have a heart for training untrained pastors in economically-challenged countries.   Your partnership would be appreciated.
