Cuba is not a place that I can just sit down and describe. The experience has made such an impact on my life that I cannot even accurately try to put it into words.  The one thing that I can say for certain though is that Cuba is a place where people know The Lord and love The Lord. From my experiences in Cuba, I have been able to develop a sense of what it means to be faithful even in the real struggles that the world can present.

There is no easy way to describe Cuba as a whole. When told that I needed to write a one page paper about my experience, I didn't know how I was going to fit it all into one page. It was easily one of the most life changing experiences of my life so far and I'm sure my life to come.

My trip to Cuba was an experience I will never forget. I had learned a great deal about myself and my relationship with God.
Being at the camp was my favorite part of the trip. Seeing all the kids there, with the same mind set, to bring them-selves closer to Christ. At the camp I enjoyed worship a lot, I never thought that I would be jumping up and down, dancing, and practically going crazy for worship. I was told that it would be different and an eye opener, but this was amazing. Read more.
