The Dramatic Work of Rich and Joyce Swingle

Teaching and Performing in Cuba

In twelve hours we'll leave for Cuba to teach, perform and encourage the people! 

I've been invited to teach three  workshops at a Bible school and train young people how to do  enacted prayer and how to create their own sketches through improvisation. On the last night they'll perform a brand new sketch just before I perform  Views of the Manger with Spanish translation slides, which were just finished a couple of nights ago. ¡Mil gracias, ayudantes!

We've been amazed at the Lord's timing related to this trip.  In the aftermath of Fidel Castro's death, the government called for a moratorium on any special events at churches. We believe the ban has now ended, but we appreciate your prayers for a smooth journey and smooth events!

When we prayed about whether we should accept the invitation, we sensed the Lord  urging us to go and encourage the people there with the Love of our Lord and the Good News that they are not forgotten but were bought with a Price. We pray we can bring the Precious Scripture to Life in their minds and hearts through the play and workshops. Pray they hear and understand All the Lord has for them, and that Joy, unspeakable Joy will be the hallmark of the trip!

Our local hosts are not able to cover our travel expenses, so if you're able to help, please do so at

Thanks so much for your prayer and assistance!

In Christ alone,
Rich and Joyce Swingle
