In a post on Truth Social, former president Donald Trump addressed the heartbreaking scenario.

“I want to express my admiration and support for all of the brave people of Cuba, who are standing up against the vile communist regime.”

He continued by stating, “I want the people of Cuba to know that we are watching what is happening in Santiago very closely, we are watching it every single minute of the day. We are with you.”

The people are calling upon the military to turn their allegiance toward the people instead of the communist government. As Reuters reported, Cuba has reached out to the World Food Programme so that the children could have powdered milk. 375 tons of powdered milk were expected to make it from Brazil.

The harsh living conditions in Cuba have been around for decades, but that hasn’t stopped brave men and women from reaching out to the people there with the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Award-winning journalist J. Lee Grady had the opportunity to go to Cuba in 1993 where he went to a house church to find 200 people singing praises to God. He also notes that within recent years missionary work on the island has been at “an all-time high.”

Founder and CEO of Charisma Media, Stephen Strang also shared a prophetic word from Tony Suarez about the release of the people of Cuba back in 2021 on how the island would serve the Lord.

The Lord’s heart is that all people might know Him and be saved, and this includes the people of Cuba. During this time of crisis, it is imperative that we might press in to Him on behalf of the people here so that they too may see the miracle-working power of Jesus Christ.
