CUBA PASTORS SUPPLEMENT ADVANCE
At present, Cuban pastors receive 300 Cuban pesos and 15 CUC as monthly compensation from the Methodist Church in Cuba. This is equivalent to $30 (USD) monthly. A 10CUC stipend will help add to their monthly income. Although not a dramatic increase, it will provide some relief to their current situation. This increase will only be applicable to full time pastors (missionaries are being supported by other groups).

RETIRED CUBA PASTORS ADVANCE
This Advance will strengthen our “Methodist United in Prayer” covenant with Cuba, which has been in existence for 17 years. Support provided through this Advance will show our appreciation for servants of God that have committed their lives to proclaim the Gospel in Cuba and will help provide them with a more stable financial situation after retirement.
Methodist pastors in Cuba receive an average of 20USD as monthly salary. Consequently, their contributions to the retirement fund are extremely low and will only account for 160 Cuban pesos (equivalent to 6.40USD) as monthly income in retirement. Funds from this advance will provide a supplement of 250 Cuban pesos ($10 at current exchange rate) to their retirement monthly income.

The Cuban government limits the number of worshipers in houses. For the worshipers to bring new people to Christ, a church building is required. This Advance will support IMECU’s evangelistic effort through new church planning. Our goal is to help provide house churches, thereby enabling new church starts.
