Women respond to I Will Go through "A Touch of Love" ministry

The love of Jesus can be felt by touching others with loving acts when physical touch is restricted.

[Cuba] Throughout our beautiful island of Cuba, on the plain and in the mountains, we have brought the church to the community. The doors of our churches have been closed from 2020 and so far into 2021. We have turned from the open church door approach to the door to door house approach that we call "A Touch of Love" ministry.

We visit women in many communities offering various services. We listen, share love and friendship, and provide intercessory prayer. We hold courses in culinary arts, cutting and sewing. We give Bible studies and distribute Adventist literature, Bible videos, and Christian films. We are preaching and mentoring.

The project has been a success since it is personal, designed to meet the needs of each individual. As a result, new small groups have been created and friendships are flourishing in areas where before there was no Adventist presence.

Our women see no obstacles in showing the love of Jesus to those who don't know Him. That is why we can see them helping, repairing houses in the community for the poor, and giving away food during this time of confinement and scarcity, as well as making masks, hand-embroidered with a message of hope and love. Our women are responding to I WILL GO. Thus, the Great Commission to baptize other women is being achieved.
