A Day in the Life | Wednesday

31st January 2018 Ministry

This is to answer the question of what is a typical day like for you in Guyana.  To start off, I’m choosing this past Wednesday because Wednesdays are our busiest days. 6:00AM We wake up naturally early here because the sun is bright and there is a lot of activity in the neighborhood.
