Streams of Living Water

In memory of Violet Cabot, a 32 meter deep well (104 Feet) was constructed in El Bon. This well has higher volume than the current drinking facility in El Bon. Currently, we are fundraising to install a cistern & motor for water purification that will attach permanently to the well, which will provide clean, purified, drinking water for the entire community. The wonderful thing about this is that people from all over the area will travel to the church property for water, and are likely to find the Living Water as well.

[Jesus] suddenly cried out, “If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink. He who believes in Me, as the Scriptures said, ‘From his innermost being will flow rivers of living water.’ But this He spoke of the Spirit, whom those who believed in Him were to receive; for the Spirit was not yet given, because Jesus was not yet glorified” (John 7:37–39).

Feeding El Bon during COVID Crisis

I have received many photos of how the Lutz members’ monetary donations have come to fruition in our little town of El Bon. Pastor Darier traveled to Bayamo (approx. 3 hours by car/taxi) to purchase supplies to package meals. Then church members divided into groups: some cooked pork and rice over open flame, others boxed, others delivered the food to the members of the church and to others in the community who are elderly or sick. They placed the food boxes in a large tote and walked through the neighborhood delivering the food and praying with the people. The video shows pictures that are examples of what Lutz is doing in our sister church and I would like to share, as best as possible, as an update to our church members and those who are supporting the Cuba missions.

Pastor Darier says, “The Bible says faith without works is dead faith.” He also reports this miracle: “But doing this was good, but the great thing is that today there was no electricity, all day and I can tell you that all these people today went to sleep without eating because their pots are electric, and the stores to buy food were closed due to the lack of electricity. So my dear sister, I saw the sign of God today when there was no electric current, you should be here and see their faces with just a little food. A fantastic day !!!! Glory to God!!!!!”

Thank you and many blessings!

Rev. Darier Benitez

Rev. Darier Benitez, and his lovely wife Dayani have been serving in El Bon since 2007.  The church started under the mango tree. They moved services into their home, until a two-story, freestanding building could be built.  Now, church attendance has grown to 180 members and is still growing. 
 
You can see in this picture,with the little girl, that he takes “laying on of hands” seriously. She even mimics at such a young age.
 
At 5 AM every day, the church is open for prayer, while Yanitza plays keyboard. It is very spirit-led with prayers and praise offered out loud. The community can hear and are welcome to participate.
