HAVANA TIMES — At the entrance to the Havana Bay tunnel on Thursday and Sunday evenings a large gathering of people of all ages takes place with a specific objective: the word of God.

They don’t have a church to meet at, but that does not stop the pastor and his disciples from doing their job. Among their objectives is to guide young people who have dropped out of school, people who are or have been prisoners and their families, and others who at some time in life have been hooked on drugs and/or alcohol.

dios-3Abel Hernández Pérez, an Ordained Minister of Victory Outreach International is an enthusiastic and charismatic person who transmits his great faith. During the recent Easter week his congregation put on well some organized activities.

They staged passages of the Bible, including a very beautiful and well accomplished Via Crucis. The amateur actors were disciples of the congregation. With much love and good organization they did an admirable job with their theater piece.

Here are some pictures of what I saw on Easter Sunday, April 20.

  • Actually I find sad the fact that the Catholic Church and the these Christians (evangelicals or whatever they want to be called) are bringing back the social separation issue that you won’t understand because you are not Cuban.

  • Your comment leaves me with a question. What is it that you find sad? The religious activity of some Cubans? The reaction on this list?

  • I detect quite a bit of anger from you. ….why would that be?

  • This is just sad.

  • Any country which outlaws religion, arrests, imprisons or deports clerics and demolishes houses of worship is a militantly atheist state. The USSR, China, and Cuba were all such countries.

    I’ve read and watched Hotchens for years and am quite familiar with his skilled rhetoric. But at the bottom of it all his arguments are nothing more than clever dodges. Hitchens may claim to be a moral atheist because he grew up educated by the Church of England, of which faith his brother is still a practicing member.
