Connection between the Convención Bautista de Cuba Oriental and Convention Baptiste d’Haiti

January 19, 2010 Journal

Dr. Norat,

Greetings in the name of the Lord. I have been following the news from Haiti. My people are providing pastoral accompaniment to the Haitian students in Santiago de Cuba. More than 100 of them go to my church. This evening we will have a special worship service to offer them consolation and encouragement. Many have lost family members and some of them entire families. If the American Baptist Churches undertakes a project to help, I am more than willing to cooperate.

Warm regards,


Rev. Osbel Gutiérrez, pastor of the la Cuarta Iglesia Bautista (Fourth Baptist Church) in Santiago de Cuba
