Hi! My name is Annalie Losa and I am a 19 year old pre-med student at BYU. I was born and raised in Miami and joined the LDS Church on October 8,2011. Currently(but not for long), I am the only member in my family! I am of Cuban, African and Russian descent.

Cuba has been long known for its communism but also known for its lack of LDS missionaries. Being of Cuban descent, I have easier access to visit Cuba due to travel connections and therefore I can preach the gospel there to those that need hope in a time of need. There is 1 branch of about 30-50 members in the entire country and no temple(the nearest being in the Dominican Republic). All the families rely on international family members for food, clothes, medicine and other necessities due to the intense poverty. Being a recent convert who used to be Catholic and who has family in all parts of Cuba of Russian and African descent, I can empathize with the people and teach them about the saviors atonement and how life doesn't have to be so miserable.
Being medically inclined, I am able to diagnose and treat a wide variety of health issues and I would like to take medical supplies with me to help those who do not have any healthcare access.
I have hope that with enough faith and guidance, Cuba can be lifted from these dark times and the people can find joy. If the church grows and becomes officially a registered religion, members will be able to leave the country for religious purposes and perhaps in the future a temple can be built.Additionally, Cuba refuses any sort of humanitarian aid from the church itself and if we get enough members it will accept and be open to all the things the church has to offer!
It takes one person to get the ball rolling and I have faith it will but seeing as everything is so expensive, I will need donations for all the travel expenses, and basic medicine supplies. So anything helps and is very well appreciated! I would like to go for maybe about a month and any spanish speaking RM's are more than welcome to join.
I am very excited to be an instrument in the Lords work and I know that he has guided me to be the person I am today to help others and change lives! Thank you! :)
