Who We Are
It all started when...
The Southwest District Mission Program, Inc. was formed from the parent organization, Methodist United in Prayer, and is backed by the Florida United Methodist Church Conference. The Southwest District has been travelling to Cuba since 1997. In 2007, Dan Christopherson and his wife, Janet, went to Cuba for the first time, and the experience left a lasting impression. In 2009, Dan took a leap of faith and volunteered to become the new District Coordinator.
Through much determination and many blessings, the program has grown into the Southwest District Mission Program, Inc. In the spring of 2014, the organization became a not-for-profit 501c(3) organization formed to assist and promote many challenges within the country of Cuba. With your assistance and contributions, we can give our Cuban brothers and sisters, and the next generation, opportunities for a better future.
