Our Companion Relationship with Cristo Rey, Cuba
Christ Church has a supportive relationship with a small companion church in rural Cuba. The
church, Cristo Rey, is located in an agricultural community, Cuatro Esquinas. Many of the farmers
lease land from the government.
Our church recently visited Cristo Rey, along with other missionaries from St. Paul's Episcopal in
Tallahassee. In 2013, we installed a water purification system behind Cristo Rey that provides
free, clean drinking water to the residents of Cuatro Esqinas. This technology is part of a ministry
by Living Waters for the World (LLW). One of our church members received training from LLW
in order to install the system properly and teach the residents how to use the clean water to best
In 2015, another group from our church spent time in Cuatro Esquinas. New filters and other
equipment were taken to the operators of the water system and it was inspected. Members helped
install another LLW water system in a nearby community.
Christ Church is committed to supervising the maintenance of the water system. We make annual
contributions to the church. Some of our young people have visited the village and plan another
trip this summer. They will help with projects around the village.
