Five Months in Guyana

11th March 2018 Ministry, Visitors

This last month has been quite busy, but happily so!  The end of February we had our second visitors, our friends Ross and Bonnie from our congregation in the States.  They came for ten days and we kept them busy in the ministry.  Bonnie counted up and, in the ten days of their visit, she went on 16 Bible studies and she and Ross combined put in 60-plus hours of service! During their visit we were able to visit NumberRead More

Wild Life

19th February 2018 Daily Life, Ministry

We also have recently had a busy few weeks. We took a trip to Barbados in order toRead More

First Week in Guyana

5th October 2017 Ministry

Yesterday was our one week anniversary in Guyana. As with most worthwhile endeavors, there have been ups and downs, triumphs and challenges. Before we arrived, the brothers found a house for us to rent from a nice family. It is a two story, four bedroom (only two usable) and two bath house. It came furnished, although most of the furnishings were old and broken. And because the house was closed up for a time, it was also filled with bugs.Read More
