A Look Inside Haven’s Cuba Broadcast

Cuba may just be 90 miles off the coast of Florida but it might as well have been on the moon during the pandemic — it was physically unreachable by our team in the United States. And yet the Lord still did great things through Haven’s Spanish broadcast El Faro de Redención.

Our ministry to Cuba is focused on shining the light of Christ from all of Scripture for all of Cuba and all the world. We do this through daily 30-minute radio programs that include biblical insights, Cuban music, local testimonies, and prayers for the Cuban church and believers around the world.

But how can a US based ministry collect stories from Christians in Havana and even the hard-to-reach churches of the Cuban countryside? The answer is simple . . . we have a team on the ground.

Jennifer Letford (Producer for Cuban Content) interviews Miguel and Grisela about their ministry to inmates in a Cuban prison.

Serving as our Producer for Cuban Content in the field, Jennifer Letford is a critical member of the team who helps El Faro’s broadcast remain deeply connected to what’s top of mind for Cubans today. Working alongside our network of volunteers and local churches throughout the country, Jennifer collects countless interviews with Cuban believers to be included on the program every day.

Not only does this keep our content relevant, but it enables the local church to build itself up through real-life stories and encouragement. And since El Faro airs on more than 50 stations throughout the Spanish-speaking world, it also allows Cuba’s unique voice to be heard in a way that’s never been possible before.

From time to time we air an entire series of testimonies of God’s grace reaching Cubans from many walks of life with the saving news of Jesus. Woven through many of the testimonies are stories of extreme hardship where people were looking for answers and found them in the Lord.

Many others were saved after seeking refuge in the false promises of practices like Santería, a syncretistic religion blending elements of Christianity with rituals rooted in West African paganism.

Sometimes, the testimonies are surprising — a woman dreaming of someone standing on a staircase, then seeing that staircase at a local church where she found Jesus!

The Lord is working in powerful ways to draw many in Cuba to faith in Jesus. Men and women, youth and elderly believers have the opportunity to reach their nation through El Faro’s nightly broadcast across the island.
