About Gloria Arenado
Adela Mourlot, Luz Gómez, and Gloria Arenado promoted a special offering to support the founding of the seminary. They asked every Baptist to give one cent per
day to create a fund for the seminary. They believed that with $3.65 Cuban pesos every person would give per year the Baptist convention cold have its own seminary. This amount of money “was obviously not enough, but it was the starting point that created the momentum to establish the theological institution” (O. Colás, personal
communication, August 24, 2002). The campaign to raise the necessary funds for the seminary was named “The one cent transforming brigade.” Adela Mourlot (1975) chose the term “transforming” for this campaign because a seminary trains people for missions and the goal of missions is to transform people. This brigade also sponsored the two students who attended the seminary in Matanzas. Every October 10, the Eastern Cuba Baptist Convention raises money to continue supporting the seminary.
