Cuban pastors ‘spread the gospel and help save lives’ on their coronavirus masks

As Cuba deals with the coronavirus pandemic, a group of pastors is banding together to help save lives and share the gospel message.

Vernon Brewer, the CEO and founder of World Help, a Christian humanitarian aid organization, shared about the creative idea in the island nation that relies heavily on tourism. One man told the group he waited two hours in line at a store to buy food but left with a single can of sardines.“We don’t want to miss an opportunity to continue witnessing for the Lord,” the pastors told Brewer as they put Philippians 4:13 and Acts 16:31 on different masks, written in Spanish.

“They ordered 1,000 face masks printed with Bible verses to wear and hand out,” Brewer explained. “Now, each person wearing them will share the gospel to those who are looking for help spiritually – without even saying a word!

He added, “What an incredible witness. Their faith reminds us that, even when everything seems to be going wrong, God is still at work and we can put our hope in him.”
