Guyana is the only English-speaking country in South America. It has a population of approximately 800,000 people; half of the people live in towns and the other half in remote villages. Our heart’s desire is for the Great Commission to be reached, so that every person in Guyana may hear the truth of the Gospel allowing them to receive forgiveness and eternal life through Jesus.
Our summer trips consist mostly of working with children at churches/community centers and with prisoners. We present the Gospel through music and a message at each location. Our team then spends one-on-one time with each person in attendance, answering questions and many times, having the joy of leading them to accept Christ as Savior. The joy that we have seen in the changed lives of the Guyanese has often been life-changing for those who have served on our teams.
We would like to invite you to consider stepping out of your normal routine and sharing the Gospel with the many who need to hear its truth
***Please note that the two-week trip is an extra $600.
