A great experience...
In life, we find moments that stand out and mark us
in a way that changes our way of thinking, positively
or negatively. The trip to Cuba was the opposite
of negative. The journey began with a day full of
illusions and great heat. The temperature was a factor
that accompanied us all the time on the island given
the great humidity and high temperatures. From
the moment we arrived we realized the difference,
we were no longer in a comfortable place. We were
disconnected in such a way that those who live tied to the
internet suffered 7 days of darkness. There was a break when
I got the first call from clients but I had no data service, so
no access to text or emails for a whole week. After a 12-
hour journey, we arrived at the town of Las Tunas where we
stayed in a hotel not as fancy as we were accustomed to. The
second day we arrived at a camp in the middle of a beautiful
place on a hill surrounded by extensive valleys of cane and
cornfields. There we were expecting about 160 youth and over
40 Pastors from the island of Cuba ready to receive everything God had provided. We offered seminars
on issues ranging from how to evangelize to how to be useful members in the hands of God within the
limitations. There were four days of seminars and services in the evening where the whole group of 24
foreigners gave to the task of giving everything that God had placed in our hearts. Ceiling and food were
provided during those days to all who arrived. Many walked, came
in carriage or public transportation for hours and hours with the
sole purpose of reaching that camp. The effort of each one that
arrived was great and we were moved to hear the stories of all the
sacrifices that they made to arrive. They were also provided with
clothing, personal care items and the pastors received a month’s
worth of salary. For us we would not give up for breakfast and
lunch but they do wonders. The Cubans have a great heart with
pride of its roots and with desire to know more of God. On the
fourth day we returned to Havana with a bittersweet feeling as one of the Pastors traveling with us became ill on one foot and the
picture was not the best. Thank God who always has friendly
hands and opens doors and the next day he was able to find a
flight back to Orlando. Those of us who stayed with the group
used the day to see part of Havana and at night we visited a
family of Christians in Havana with whom we could learn more
about the island. I had the opportunity to speak with a colleague
lawyer who told me how they worked. Having a similar legal
basis made it very comfortable to start talking about legal
issues although I was surprised when she told me what they
could charge for a case. On the penultimate day we had the
opportunity to visit Viñales about two hours from Havana where
we learned a little of the history of the Indians of the island.
I have to thank my boss, Michael T. Gibson for being the main
sponsor of this life-changing activity. With his contribution
over 6 pastors, including Pastor Manuel Santos, Pastor Abiud
Torres, Pastor Pablo Laboy, Pastor Moises Garo, Pastor Daniel
Rodriguez and his wife Elly Rodriguez, Pastor David Rivera
and his wife Mis. Ada Rivera, they went to continue spreading
the word of God on that beautiful island. The experience was
extraordinary and I just can say…can’t wait to return.

the Gibson family summer vacation
By: Attorney Michael T. Gibson
It has become a family tradition of ours to load up our van and head south to Sanibel Island every Fourth of July, for our family summer
vacation. This year’s trip didn’t disappoint. There was lots of sun and fun on the beach. Brady discovered ping pong, and I discovered
that Jen is actually the best ping pong player in our house. Eme took up playing teacher, and really enjoyed all the good food. We were
fortunate to have Jen’s parents stay close by, so the kids enjoyed having Abe and Abuelo to play with as well. One thing that really stood
out to Jen and I on this trip was just how big Eme and Brady are getting and how fast they are growing up. This was our first summer
trip with no diapers, baby bags, or strollers. That is a pretty big milestone for us and one that is bittersweet. This annual trip is always
a reminder of how fast the time with our little ones goes, and a reminder to us, to stop every now and then and enjoy the journey that is
parenting. We hope you and your family get to enjoy a summer break as well. Here are some pics that highlight our trip. Enjoy!

Currently, he is working the area of Evangelism in Poinciana and also in part of Polk County. For the

His church also offers community hours needed by people who are being rehabilitated in various civil
issues. They humbly honor and give all the Glory to God.
