December 3, 2017 was a day to remember in the history of the evangelical church in Cuba. During two live broadcasts (at 8:00 am and 10:00 pm) on the airways of CMBF National Music Radio of Cuba, Dr. Rubén Fernández, originally from Argentina, shared the Word of God, becoming the first non-Cuban evangelical to preach on cuban radio since the revolution in 1959.
It all started two years before, when a high government official working in the religious matters area heard Dr. Fernández preach at a graduation in Havana. That same day, she commented to the leaders of the Council of Churches and the United Bible Societies sitting beside her: “He should be invited to preach on the radio.” The technicality was that until that moment, only Cubans were invited to do it.
The program which is transmitted once a month is called “Gospel Marching Forward” and the topic of Dr. Fernández’s message was “The Ministry of Reconciliation,” based on 2 Corinthians 5.
We give God thanks for this historic opportunity our institution was able to take part of, sharing with the Cuban people the message of hope that Jesus brings to all of humanity.
