Our Cuba Outreach trip with Wilbur Ministries 


First we are so grateful to all of you who partnered with us financially, and to those of you who kept us in prayer. Know this….God answered VERY favorably!

You helped us load a large suitcase full of children’s medicines, toys, candy and tons of boxes good old American Cracker Jacks followed by lot’s of toothbrushes and toothpaste for the orphanage!

We were blessed to be part of Paul Wilbur’s anointed and talented team, who without knowing what to expect in Cuba, joined together as one body and in one accord to be a light to the nations, and to serve God, each other, and the beautiful Cuban people.

One of the events was cancelled due to a scheduling problem, so Paul had arranged for all of us to be on a bus touring Havana, and getting out there, where we were able to meet and speak with the Cuban people individually, by which our hearts were prepared to minister to them with a better understanding, and how to pray before the event. Hallelujah, we serve a great God who has everything under control, and guides us when we choose to serve Him!

While we were there, so many things happened that it’s almost hard to put it all into words. Fidel Castro’s son (Alejandro Castro) joined all of us one afternoon for lunch in a beautiful Havana setting by the beach. We conversed very casually, and he seemed to be happy to see Paul Wilbur again and I (being fully fluent in Spanish) had a nice little casual conversation with him as well. What struck me was that he seemed so happy that we were there!

During one evening, I met a woman in a marketplace and during our conversation I mentioned to her that we were doing a concert. She smiled and asked when and where? I then told her it was Christian and it was at the San Franciscan Basilica de Asis and she jumped up and kept saying over and over “It’s a miracle of God”!!!! “That church is a museum, and they hold concerts but NEVER has there been a Christian concert there or anywhere!!! She was smiling, shaking with excitement with gentile tears in her eyes. She showed up the next day at the event with all of her family and a few other families as well as with her pastor!

To our surprise, there where some who came wearing Kippa’s and with a flag of Israel! I conversed with many of them afterwards to find out that there is a Messianic community in Havana (some are quiet and in secret).

This event was not advertised, so of course no one knew what to expect, but it was packed full and they worshiped in freedom, as they never had before in a museum that was once a church, and once again (after 60 years), for that evening, became a place of worship. They were lifting hands as we were, and even began to dance. I looked toward the back of the room, where the women attendants (the ones who over see the museum), in their uniforms, formed a circle in the back and began dancing unto the Lord with so much joy, it makes me want to cry just writing about it.

At the end of the praise and worship concert, a large group of women approached me, and one shared that she was healed!!!! She had been limping for 20 years and had a sort of cane (that her friend was now carrying). She said that suddenly she got up off her seat and began to dance again for the first time in 20 years! They then asked for me to pray over them, after saying this is the first time anyone has done this in public!

We ended that glorious evening, at a restaurant, where Paul and I asked for candles, which I lit, and together sang a blessing as we brought in Chanukah! Interestingly she only had 2 candles.. another sign God was with us. We ONLY needed TWO.. The servant, and the first night!!! What a time to bring in the feast of dedication unto the light of the world, as he used us to be a light to the nations!

As we said before, we were invited to come again next year, and this time, they want to publicize the event. Praise God!

Now can I mention our tour guide? He shared with me in the beginning of the trip (very nicely) that he was not a believer. Well, when it was time to go home the morning after the concert, he told me that he’s “not sure after what I saw with my own eyes, that I can say that anymore” He was so happy to get the free CD’s and DVD’s and said he LOVED the music… and ALL OF US! He also said he couldn’t believe the love that we all brought there. He gave me a kiss good by on the cheek, and said “Dios te bendiga” (God bless you).

We had a great outpouring of the Holy Spirit, and people where touched for sure. We are already missing Cuba, the beautiful people, and are looking forward to going again next year as a part of the anointed worshipers in the Wilbur Ministries Team!

Soon to follow will be a DVD. We will let you know when it’s ready as there is so much more and you will hear Paul share as well.

Thank you again, and please keep the Cuban people and the next Cuba outreach in prayer!

Blessings in Messiah Yeshua

Cuba here we come! 

Well , the time is approaching and we are getting ready for our Cuban ministry and adventure. We fly out to Miami on December 5th to hook up with Paul Wilbur and the rest of the ministry team, then head on out to Havana, Cuba at 8:00 a.m. the following morning.

We will have the awesome opportunity to minister at El Catedral (The Cathedral) which has been a museum, and then at the Franciscan Church.

When speaking with Paul the ohter day, he shared that we will be the first worship team to minister there, as it was only last year when they even allowed a Christmas tree to be brought in. Yes, God is moving in these last days, and we feel honored and humbled to be called to be a part of this historic event.

We still need your help to make the most of such an important opportunity. These events will be free and open to the people in Cuba. We are all sowing our time, resources and praying that God uses us to bless the Cuban People.
Please pray and ask the Lord how you can minister to this island cut off from us for nearly 60 years. We will bring food and clothing of course, but more importantly, we will bring the songs of heaven to Havana!

If you haven't already, Would you consider a special love offering to the people of Cuba? We have raised about 2,500.00 of the 5,000.00 it is costing us to go. And to those of you who have partnered with us, we thank you and pray that God would bless you 100 times over!

Cuba Dates are set! 

Well it's been almost a year since we sent out an e-mail telling you that we were invited to be a part of the ministry team lead by Paul Wilbur to reach out with the good news of Yeshua (Jesus) to the Cuban people. This trip was postponed, but Finally, we are set to go on December 6, 2012.. and yes this is the two of us!

It is a humble honor that our Lord has called us to the "remotest parts of the earth" to continue to share the good news of Messiah!

Below is an excerpt from a letter by Paul Wilbur:

"Well, after a long silence it appears we are indeed going to Cuba in December! Some firsts for Cuba in over 50 years will include our team sharing a concert of "religious music" in a Franciscan church that has been a museum since the revolution and a service in the national cathedral by invitation of the Cardinal of Cuba! Come on, this doesn't happen every day!!!! Can you help us for this historic event? This for a three day event with two travel days to and from the island. We need your help to make the most of such an important opportunity. Would you consider a special love offering to the people of Cuba? These events will be free and open to the people in Cuba. I am sowing my time, resources and praying that God uses us to bless the Cuban People.
Please pray and ask the Lord how you can minister to this island cut off from us for nearly 60 years. We will bring food and clothing of course, but more importantly, we will bring the songs of heaven to Havana!

Thank you for your generous heart and desire to bring the message of the King to our world! May the Lord bless you and keep you!"

Shalom,
Paul

What a wonderful year it has been! 

I have been reflecting on all that has happened in 2011, and am amazed at what G-d has done.
We had a wonderful opportunity to go on a music ministry tour to Australia from February to March.  We did 16 churches in 14 days. We arrived in Sydney, then flew to Perth, then Adelaide, then Brisbane, then Melobourne and finally back to Sydney.  It was AMAZING to have been invited to do Messianic music, share testimony and speak a bit on the Jewish roots of the Christian Church, and see many eyes open to something new to them.  Praise God for that opprtunity.

We have been traveling around the US as well, Branson, MO, South Carolina, Georgia, Arizona, All of Florida to name a few, and with all that, God allowed us time to record and release our new CD "Walk On Water" which has received wonderful reviews.

Most of you know that 2012 will be another wonderful year, as we allow the Lord to use us as He leads.  Regarding the Cuba trip, here is an excerpt from Paul Wilbur's blog
"Some of you know by now that Cuba was postponed…not cancelled because of a last minute funding issue that arose. We are working on dates for Feb/March right now, and I am confident we are going soon."

May our Lord to continue to grow us all in Him, as we submit to His will.

Happy 2012 everyone!
Deborah & Vince

August/September 2010: Here and There 

It seems like as we follow our calling, our eyes are open to new things everyday!

We recently ministered at the MJAA National Conference which took place at the Messiah College outside of Philadelphia, where there was a huge attendance despite today’s economy. Both Messianic Jewish believers and Christian organizations attended to see what Adonai had in store this year! This is the second summer in a row that we have ministered there. This year was an incredible and powerful conference with some very poignant speakers, great teachings, and great music ministry from many messianic music artists. We saw first hand, the power of our Lord and Savior Yeshua, as many people received healing, and many others came to know their Messiah.

Shortly thereafter,… six days to be exact, we made our first trek to the Holy land during July and August. We led worship on what we are told and have to believe after experiencing it, is one of the best Tours of Israel. A Tour headed by Rabbi Larry Feldman. We returned with a whole new perspective on the Gospel, Biblical History from the time of the Patriarchs, as well as prophecy being fulfilled with regards to the return of Jews to Eretz Y’srael from the four corners of the earth! We also saw first hand the multitude of issues they face today., as well as the difficulties that believers are experiencing. We must pray for Israel and be glad and give thanks knowing that the Lord is orchestrating everything.

While on our trip, we had a chance to meet up with some friends who live and minister in Arad at one of the Messianic congregations there. They picked us up from our Hotel at the Dead Sea, and on our way to Arad. we began to see first hand the extreme persecution of believers there. Their home has been the subject of surveillance, there is continual harassment including of a physical nature, even their children are harassed in their schools. To our surprise, we also found that there is a significant number of Spanish speaking Jews who’s ancestors were part of the Diaspora and have made it back “home”. They too are facing persecution. We ended up leaving Spanish CD’s in Israel to be passed out to those who have come home, but speak mainly Spanish.

Since our return, we have been invited to minister at the Mexican Jewish Alliance in Mexico. There are many “tight knit” communities of Jews all over Mexico, who do not yet know their Messiah. As you know, Mexico is a poor country, they cannot afford to just go out and buy extras like worship CD’s, yet they are so hungry to hear the word of G-d in everyway they can. So we wound up donating Spanish CD’s to the Alliance to be passed out to the poor believers, but also as a tool to reach the unsaved Jewish population there. What better way to approach someone but with a gift of music, a non threatening universal language! We have been invited to minister at the Conference there in July 2011, and are prayerfully planning to attend, as the L-rd provides the funds for us to get there.

Three weeks ago, other friends of ours were headed to Uruguay where there is a Messianic community, they pay their way to minister once again, to another very poor Country who hunger and thirst for the Lord. Marianne Wagner, a very anointed Messianic dance teacher, prepared a team of dancers who were also heading there to minister, and taught them the dances to both the English and Spanish version of our entire CD. They were going to dance and teach them the dances, so we also donated a box of our Spanish version CD to be passed out to them, and are also prayerfully considering going there next year as well, after our Australia tour in February/March 2011.
