Leonel López, president for the Church of the Nazarene in Cuba and superintendent of the Cuba West District, shared an update this week following the 18 May plane crash that claimed the lives of more than 100 people, including 10 Nazarene pastor couples.
Church of the Nazarene member Maria Veiga Amado Nhanha passed away 5 May in her native Cabo Verde at the age of 112.
The Board of General Superintendents, Church of the Nazarene, extends its heartfelt love, passionate prayers, and deepest condolences to the families of all affected by the Friday, 18 May plane crash in Havana, Cuba.
Global Mission Director Dr. Verne Ward told the 2015 Africa Regional Convention that the church's goal is for there to be zero people groups who do not have a Christian witness among them.
“We cannot get comfortable right where we are," he said. "We have to identify with those who are unreached."
