Outreach in Guyana

By Bro. Clive Drepaul

Some months ago, an idea occurred to follow up the outreach of 2022 at Kilcoy with another over the February holiday in 2024. Given the green light from the two link brethren Rafeek Soolaman and Mark Carr, the Kilcoy Ecclesia proceeded with the following outline:

  • Fri, Feb 23rd – Talk on “The Gospel is for ALL”
  • Sat, Feb 24th – Talk on “Courtship/Marriage”
  • Sun, Feb 25th – Joint Breaking of Bread; Workshop on “Ecclesial Servants”

The Kilcoy Ecclesia distributed flyers in the vicinity a few days prior and the two link bros heralded the program by a visit during which a vehicle was purchased to facilitate CYC attendance and support at joint meetings across Berbice.  A volley ball court donated by a former Kilcoy brother now residing in Canada was set up in the spacious lawn.  The response was very encouraging.

  • Friday’s talk on “Gospel for All” led by Bro. Ben Drepaul was followed by a BBQ with attendance over 25.
  • Saturday’s Joint CYC – over 20 New Amsterdam members were transported in the new vehicle, driven by Bro. Abedi.
  • Sunday’s Workshop – over 30 shared in considering all aspects of Ecclesial Duties by Brothers and sisters.

Material distributed included; “Guidelines for a Happy Marriage”; “Servants of the Lord” and “The Ecclesial Guide”. Also, a special folder with useful tips for exhorting brothers was distributed. Travel arrangements allowed some extra time for ministration at New Amsterdam and Demerara.

Bro. Rafeek’s “Origin of Nations” at the online Thurs 7:00 pm Kilcoy Bible Class served a useful introduction to the weekend program along with the in-person Bible Class at 5:00 pm on Wednesday at New Amsterdam on Exodus 34 by Bro Ben.

We pray God’s continual blessings on the CYC’ers, the devoted Brothers and Sisters as they remain in focus for weekly activities and upcoming special events in Guyana.  Bible School hosted by Eccles in April, July Caricom Fraternal Gathering at New Amsterdam and the Triennial Caribbean Camp in Trinidad &Tobago.
