We are no longer in Guyana but this blog is a history of your time there 2017-2018

Leaving Guyana

9th October 2018 Ministry

This is our last week in Guyana so this will likely be my final blog post, at least for a while. We have now been in Guyana for a little over a year, which was our goal. We would like to come back, perhaps for a few months every year, but for we need to go back to the States to get jobs and such. This past year has been amazing for us in terms of building our faith andRead More

Cats

21st September 2018 Daily Life

If you’ve been following on social media, you know that we inherited some cats when we moved into our house.

Guyana has 7 isolated congregations, many accessible only by rough roads, planes, or rivers. Orealla is the closest one to us. Traveling there requires taking a car to the furthest point east, to a town called Skeldon, and thenRead More

The Guyanese government grants only a set number of visas for each religious organizationRead More
