Niquero is a remote coastal town in the southeast portion of the island of Cuba. It is a rural location with warm and friendly people who are curious and interested in the gospel. It is one of the poorest countries in the Caribbean with a low GDP average. It is a country of great need, and God will use you to make a huge difference in Niquero. The Conference there is very mission minded and fully cooperative in our evangelistic efforts. The area is very ripe for a harvest. Medical work will be very effective in this area, and we will run a clinic in the mornings where professionals can consult with patients. At night, we will conduct evangelism and children’s programming. People of all ages and skill levels are needed.
We will fly into Holguin, Cuba and take a bus to Niquero. Your itinerary should plan to arrive on November 15th.
