As a media professional, it is seldom that I am unplugged. I have my cell phone with me every place I go. I check my email, Facebook, twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, WordPress, Groupme, Whatsapp, text messages and any number of stupid games I play several times every day. Even when I am completely disconnected from modern […]Read More Can Connection Cause Disconnection?
The morning of day 4 began with a welcomed blessing. I had stayed up most of the night working to get DVD’s duplicated. At the little bed and breakfast where Nancy and I stayed, we ate a nice meal that our host prepared for us and then waited for the team to arrive to pick […]Read More Day 4 – Journey To Cuba 2013
By the time we got to Santa Clara, it was several hours later than our original plan. But then again, our “original plan” had changed a few times. Let me explain. We were told a week or two before that the Assembly of God church had a conflict and we would not be ministering to […]Read More Day 3b – Journey To Cuba 2013
Today started with a whirlwind of hurdles to overcome. I finally got to back to my room the night before (or earlier that morning) around 2 AM. We met down in the lobby at 8:00 AM to take a load of the suitcases over to Pondevida Ministry. This is a ministry that serves hundreds of […]Read More Day 3a – Journey To Cuba 2013

They didn’t even have a tourist visa. The agency that arranged their travels made it very clear that if they had not received […]Read More Day 2 – Journey To Cuba 2013
Going on no sleep is never a fun thing. However, the adrenalin was rushing through my blood as if it were trying to keep up with all the thoughts that were racing through my mind. Even though my entrance through customs in Cuba would not come till 5:30 PM Cuba time, the process consumed my […]Read More Day 1 – Journey To Cuba 2013
The next several months were a whirlwind of things to get accomplished in order to make the trip a success as best I could. I began the process of breaking each episode down to individual parables and segments of scripture so we could quickly show a specific story while evangelizing. I started asking our CrossTalk […]Read More Getting Ready to Simply Be Ready
For those unaware of the purpose of this ministry partnership in Cuba, I will try to briefly explain. My family and I have produced a television series featuring bite size portions of movies that dramatically reenact the entirety of the Gospel of Matthew, the Gospel if John, the Acts of the Apostles, and will soon […]Read More Why Cuba?
The time is 11:46 PM on day 4 of this trip and I have finally been given a moment to pause and take note of the events of the past several days on this second “Journey To Cuba.” This journey has encountered so many obstacles that it is extremely difficult to even recount everything. However, […]Read More Obstacles in the Lead Up
On Wednesday, I walk into his office and see his socks through the gaping holes on the soles of his shoes, which are propped up on his finely etched solid oak desk. Behind Randy Weiss stands a two-foot bronze bust of an individual to whom he bears a striking resemblance. Shelves line the wall behind […]Read More “Remember Where You Come From”
