Please help lighten their burden.

Jailed for Christmas—Send a Card!

by Mike Donnelly • December 17, 2019

This holiday, Pastor Ramón Rigal and his wife Adya will not be “home for Christmas.” No mistletoe, no presents ’round the tree. They will celebrate Christmas behind bars.

He and his wife are prisoners of conscience because they dared to homeschool their children in Cuba.

Ramon is a pastor with a strong faith, but it would lighten his burden to know that there are people thinking about him and praying for him this Christmas.

Send a card, letter or note of encouragement to Ramón at:

Pastor Ramón Rigal
Pricion Provincial de Guantanomo Provincia
Guantanamo Ciudad
Guantanomo Kilometres 3 y medio Carretera Salvador

You can send a card, letter or note of encouragement to the children at:

Adya, Ruth or Joel Rigal
Care of:
Luz Caballero
#1075 Donato Marmol y Bernabe Varona
Provincia: Guantanomo
Ciudiad: Guantanomo

A brief note, postcard or card will be so meaningful. Before going to prison Ramón often told me how much strength he received knowing that he knew he was not alone and that homeschooling was a good thing. As we rejoice with loved one this Christmas season, don’t forget about those who are being persecuted for the very freedom we enjoy.
