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.

And as a final, encouraging note, we recentlyRead More
