Though many churches around the world moved their services online because of the coronavirus pandemic, Christians in Cuba have not had that option. Since very few people have access to the Internet, Christians have been completely without worship and fellowship.
“People are in fear of being visited by others,” a VOM worker said. “Many also live in homes where not everyone is a believer.”
In addition, Christians are concerned about future restrictions the government may impose and how they will have to adapt their teaching and worship services.
In general, Cuba is experiencing increasing violence and anxiety. Cubans must wait in long lines for food, many are without work, there is no public transportation and there is a lot of theft. According to contacts around the island, food is the hardest thing to find. Pray for Christians in Cuba.
