Don and Carol Pickel

Canada and Cuba

Sending Organization:

We were members at Calvary Baptist Church between 1977 when we returned from missionary service in Colombia, until 1993 when our mission transferred us to headquarters in Winnipeg. We had the privilege of raising our four boys in Guelph and at Calvary.

God’s call upon us to help the churches in the Eastern Baptist Conference of Cuba was confirmed in late 2010. We made the changeover from Avant Ministries to ASSIST Canada in January, 2011 and for six years now have been assisting the churches in Cuba. This is an extremely poor country (workers earn approximately $20 per month plus receive government subsidies of food). Through our ministry in churches, the Lord uses this to raise funds for the Cuban churches in assisting them on what they could not do themselves – church construction, money for benches and chairs, etc., thereby removing the impediments of church growth in that country.

Carol works in our home office doing an abundance of correspondence, and Don is full time between office work, church meetings, etc. One prayer request is that the Lord would raise up two more people to work with us in this ministry particularly in southern Ontario and in the Maritimes.
