Walter Experiences Love and a Miracle

Cuba has been in dire need of fresh produce. Due to regulations, food staples are often in short supply and hard to obtain. That’s why in 2023, a garden was started right on-site, growing fresh produce for meals served at the program and for families in serious need…families like Walter and his children, who unbeknownst to our program leaders, had nothing for dinner at home one day.

That morning, while attending church, they noticed the garden. Both children exclaimed, “Lettuce, lettuce, Daddy!” and asked their father, “When will we eat lettuce, Daddy?” Our partner, aware of the critical food situation in the area, gave them a head of lettuce and two squashes. That’s when Walter shared about their dire situation and considered the gift of vegetables a miracle from God!

It’s amazing how even the smallest acts of kindness can have a profound impact, transforming lives and strengthening faith in the process.
