Escape from Cuba   5 comments

Cuba

Dreams from the LORD 2007-2010
6 December 2007

Just got dropped off in Bishop, California. Looks like there is a big snowstorm coming into the Sierra Nevadas. The storm may last for two days.

Yesterday, I got a ride with a guy named Robert. He took me from just west of Flagstaff, Arizona on I-40 to Barstow, California. He was originally from Havana, Cuba. Robert spoke in broken English. He escaped from Cuba three years ago. He and seven other people got in a boat and began rowing to Florida. They were in the boat for eight days. Five of the people died en route. Robert, another man and a woman survived the trip. It took a lot of guts to do that. Freedom–or the hunger for freedom–is a very powerful mover in a world of slavery and oppression. The human spirit cannot remain shackled forever. Jesus sets the captives free.

  1. I find it both astonishing and heartbreaking watching inch by inch our freedoms taken away in this country. When will we wake up??? I am afraid it is too late.

  2. Ironically I posted a watercolor I did of Fidel Castro today.
    Good luck on your travels!

  3. JD: Alexander Solzhenitsyn once said that the reason the Communists took over Russia was because the people of Russia forgot God. There is a lot of sin in the United States–too many people want to put their trust in big government rather than in the Lord Jesus Christ. The sin of abortion, homosexuality and enviro-paganism is running rampant in the United States. People need to seek the Kingdom of Heaven first in their lives.

  4. Hoopsdo: Is Fidel still living? I am now hitchhiking through Montana.

  5. Yes, Castro is still alive.
