Meet Rogney. While in Cuba we had our own driver. Rogney was our guy. He was awesome. Funny thing about my relationship with him…he doesn’t know any English. I barely know a little Spanish. Yet we had this common bond. As one of the ladies on our trip said, “you guys are like two 14 year old boys.” Lol. Our goofiness, our humor, our kindness, and our desire to make friends allowed us to become close during the 9 days I was there. So much so, I became his co-pilot. I rode in the front seat every time. One time when another guy from our team, Pedro, tried to sit in the front seat, Rogney told him that seat was reserved for me, lol.
Rogney had never played pool before. We were at a resort for a day of relaxation. I found out he was sitting in the hot van. Immediately I invited him into the air condition. He came in and played his first game of pool. He knocked every ball in. Problem was that included the ones that weren’t his haha. You should have seen him so happy for winning. It was like watching a little kid. Never will forget.
I’ll be seeing Rogney again in June when we return. Please pray for our next trip. If you want to join in, hit me up for the details.
