New program for Cuba – Our Home

Tonight at 10 pm, our Cuban listeners can listen on Shine 800 AM to a new radio program called Our Home (Nuestro Hogar).

Our Home invites the listener to reflect on and to think about how to build relationships in the family.  In the program, listeners learn how to deal with difficult situations faced at home. The program covers topics such as lack of communication between family members, divorce, parenting, care for older parents, depression, and infidelity. A key element in the program is music to prepare the heart of the listener.

‘People are confused’, explains Pastor Alberto Gonzalez, TWR's national director for Cuba. ‘In Cuba, there is a pressing need for a program that deals with topics such as divorce, addictions, and loneliness. I receive many questions from listeners in need and who need counsel. I expect this program to also attract many non-Christian listeners’.

I can’t get out of depression
For example, a woman wrote to me, ‘My husband abandoned me with three small children and although I have prayed a lot, I can't get out of the depression it caused me. The family doctor advised me to see a psychologist, but Pastor I have doubts. Will I be sinning by seeking psychological help as a Christian? I am still faithful in my church, but I have lost my zest for life, yet I know that my children need me. A sister of my church tells me that I don't have faith and I do believe in the Lord and I want to obey Him, but I continue to be sad.”

Annabel Torrealba, TWR's director for North/Central Latin America and the Caribbean adds; “This program will touch the hearts of the Cuban listeners deeply, who for years they have been at the mercy of communist teachings far removed from God’s Plan for human beings.”

Our Home’ is produced by Pastor Alberto Gonzalez and Jesus Blanco. Our Home will air every Friday night at 10 pm on Shine 800 AM, and can also be heard in Venezuela, Mexico and the Southern part of the United States. 

Pray that the programs may become a blessing for our listeners in Cuba and all-over Latin America.

Your gift can change the lives of our listeners in Cuba! 

About TWR in Cuba
TWR has an office in Havana Cuba since 2005. Alberto Gonzalez is the Radio Trans Mundial (RTM) Cuba National Director. Gonzalez works with a group of very committed people who are involved in program production, writing, printing and distributing Christian literature and listener follow up which includes visiting their listeners. Alberto is a very well-known speaker and pastor in Cuba.

Every evening, from 8 to 11 pm, Shine 800 AM reaches Cuba from Bonaire with Spanish programs like TTB, Women of Hope, Haven Today and Pastor Alberto’s own Messages of Faith and Hope. The upgraded 450 kW signal provides a city-grade (FM-like) signal that reaches all over Cuba.

Cuban media (Radio/TV) is owned and controlled by the state, and is mostly used for propaganda promoting political goals. The Internet in Cuba is difficult to receive and is expensive and slow. Therefore, an outside media source, such as TWR, is vital to reaching the country with the gospel.
