Our Dean for Advancement, Rev. Tim McPherson, plans to ride 800 miles across Cuba February 20-27, 2019, along with Dr. Gary Morsch and other riders representing One Heart – Many Hands (OHMH), to build a bridge of goodwill to the people of Cuba. While OHMH raises money for disaster response and medical supplies, Tim will be delivering ministry resources to Nazarene pastors in Cuba through the office of the Nazarene National Church President and raising money for the “Rev. Ángel Vázquez Carrillo Scholarship for Hispanic Students.”
Rev. Ángel Vázquez Carrillo has been a Nazarene pastor since 1956. He pastored for 46 years in Puerto Rico and started missionary work with the late William Porter in the Dominican Republic and Venezuela. Rev. Vazquez opened four new churches in Puerto Rico and prepared thirteen new pastors on the island; he is now assisting the Church of the Nazarene in Levittown, Puerto Rico as Dean of Pastors. Fueled by a passion for holiness, Rev. Vázquez Carrillo loves to preach the gospel and devotedly prepares a sermon every week. Rev. Ángel Vázquez Carrillo, thank you for your example. Thank you for your continuing service. Thank you for your heart for God, your heart for holiness, your love for others, and your lifetime commitment to the mission of the Church of the Nazarene.
