Guyana Jubilee Bible School 2022

By Bro. David Andrews, fulltime Missionary in Guyana

Easter week-end Friday 15-April to Mon 18-April 2022, will mark the 50th Bible School being held in Guyana. The first was held in April 1969, at the Eccles Hall under the tutorship of Bros. Norman Mills and Stuart Cowlishaw, who were both from the UK. At this time, Bro. Colishaw was a lecturer at the University at the West Indies in Trinidad. I was then just an 18 year-old from the Bartica Ecclesia up the Essequibo River, migrating to Georgetown to take up a job at the Ministry of Finance. continue reading

La Pachamama (Mother Earth) is worshipped as the life-giver, and spirits are said to inhabit many things, one of those being human skulls. continue reading

    “Here is water; what doth hinder me to be baptized?”

    By Bro. Isaiah & Sis. Rosie Tunnell

    This has been going through our minds for the last month or so, but instead: ‘there is no water!’ If we start the story back at the beginning of November, two lovely ladies, Ilda and Dalia of the ecclesia here in La Paz, had their interviews for baptism… only for us to discover shortly thereafter that there were still no pools open due to all the Coronavirus restrictions! We spent a few weeks looking at different options: bath was out… continue reading

    First Impressions of Guyana

    By Bro. Brian Carrick

    Bro. Mark Carr asked me to accompany him this past January for a two-week pastoral visit to Guyana, South America. When we landed at the airport outside of Georgetown, the memories came flooding back of the time some forty years earlier, when I first set foot… continue reading

  • I had been putting off this trip for quite a while—a year, in fact. With all of the restrictions brought about by COVID, and “Do Not Travel” advisories on the American Embassy website in Costa Rica, I decided to hold off visiting the country. In fact, I was able to participate in the Costa Rican … continue reading
