The people of Guyana are seeking God now more than ever. They are thirsting and have a hunger for God in the sea of Hindus and Muslims.
It is the only English speaking country in South America.This is a large country with a small population of 750,000, mainly of African and East Indian descent.
Teams can be involved in Evangelism in Hindu and Muslim areas, street evangelism, evangelism in the prisons, hospital, marketplaces. Indoor and outdoor crusades, house to house ministries, construction teams to build churches, clinics, orphanages etc, we also have medical outreach teams and youth outreach team.
The team will also visit the tropical rainforest and bath in the massive rivers that gave Guyana its name of the Land of Many Waters.
Guyana mission trip is not one of our Extreme or Remote trips. On a scale of 1 – 5 with 1 being an easy trip and 5 being a hard trip Guyana is a 4. Out staff will prepare all meals and we will make sure you have good water. The hotels are very good.
From the airport you have a 6 hour ride on flat land to Corriverton. Corriverton borders Suriname. It will not take you long to note the breeze that is blowing all the time.
Guyana is a wonderful country. Most people don’t really know where it is. Guyana is bordered on the north by the Atlantic Ocean, on the east by Suriname, on the south by Brazil, and on the west by Brazil and Venezuela. The people of Guyana are very nice and are warm to outsiders. The pace of life is slow and easy. Don’t get in a hurry here.. Well it does not matter if you do, now one else will.
The best time to visit Guyana may be at the end of either the rainy season, in late January or late August. Some locals recommend mid-October to mid-May, which may be wet, but not as hot.
Guyana is like no other mission field in this area of the world. You have English speaking people that are very nice. Where are teams go “Corriverton” is deep in the East Indian population of Guyana. In some aspects you may think you are in India. Evangelism to the Hindu and Muslim community is one of our main drives. It is amazing to look over the country side and see the rice fields and cocoanut trees.
Here you see two school friends. One a Christian and one a Muslim. This photo is Guyana!
Guyana is often referred to as the land of six peoples, reflecting the multi-ethnic composition of its population. The largest ethnic group is the East Indians (about 5l percent), descendants of indentured laborers from India, followed by the Africans (38 percent). The other ethnic groups are the Chinese, the Europeans (mostly Portuguese) and the Amerindians. The Portuguese came as indentured laborers from Madeira, the Azores and the Cape Verdes. During the colonial era, they were regarded as a separate group from the other Europeans (mainly British), no doubt because of their origins as indentured laborers. This practice underlines the notion of six peoples. There is also a large racially mixed group.
There was some geographical separation, the Indians staying mainly in the rural areas, the Africans going to the cities. There was also functional separation, the Indians remaining on the plantation as sugar workers and dominating the rice industry, the African going into the civil service and the professions and as workers in urban industries and bauxite, the Portuguese and the Chinese in commerce, the Amerindian mainly in the interior. But in the last thirty years, there has been increasing integration. Large numbers of Indians have settled in the cities, entered the civil service and the professions, taken clerical jobs. Indeed, as has been argued before, the increasing integration may paradoxically have created new stresses as there is more direct competition and the races mix more intimately and freely.”
