Verdad para Jovenes (Cuba)Following several trips there, an evangelist says God is doing amazing things in Cuba. For the first time since 1969, he says, Bibles are getting into the hands of the island nation's youth.

Cuba has been closed to the gospel for many years under communist control. But now through a work of God, a door has been opened. Evangelist Tim Todd is giving out a Cuban Spanish version of the Truth for Youth Bible (Verdad para Jóvenes) to thousands of teens there.

"So far it's been 120,000 [distributed] and we have made a total of three trips … and we are in the process of planning another trip," he announces. (See earlier story)

Todd – founder of Revival Fires International – has a big goal, but an even bigger God.

"[We hope to distribute] 1.4 million," says the evangelist, "and of course that will all be contingent on that door staying open for us. We are running through that door while we have the opportunity to."

He's making a special effort to get the Word of God into the hands of Cuban youth as the Christmas season approaches. "We're going to do a spectacular Christmas project for Cuba and provide 10,000 [Spanish] Bibles to be delivered to Cuba specifically as Christmas presents," he shares.

And according to Todd, they are highly valued gifts. "The young people and the adults, they hold that Bible like it's a piece of gold, and it means everything to them," he tells OneNewsNow. "It's more important to them than anything they could possibly get."
