Dear Partners and Supporters,
Thank you for your continued prayers and financial support as a new venture is started in Guyana Mission projects. Below is a brief summary of our outreach program:
About Guyana Mission Outreach Program
Our involvement with Pilgrim Overseas Missionary Society goes back for more years that can be remembered and it was through that missionary effort the awareness of ” Wesleyana Bible Camp ” came about.
While being active in the development of Wesleyana Bible Camp as a representative from P.O.M.S. it became increasingly evident of the needs of other evangelical groups such as Carmel Bible Camp on the Essequibo Coast, Good News Baptist Church in Anna Regina, Vreed-en-Hoop Wesleyan Church and The Baptist Bible Camp off the Essequibo River and at times some very real personal needs for schooling etc.
It was out of that awareness and the desire to reach out and help in whatever way we can and with the vision of giving them a “Fishing Rod” the idea of GUYANA MISSION was born. All the services we provide is simply a gift to enable them to better manage their resources without any strings attached and across all denominational lines. The stanza of the very well known song says it better, “All one body we, one in hope and doctrine one in charity”
Our relocation to Florida from New Jersey and the opportunity that was afforded us by the P.O.M.S. mission opened the door for the start up of the Guyana Mission Outreach Program and while there are times when a fish has to be given based on the circumstances, giving them a “Fishing Rod” is always better, that is what our mission is about.
Over the past several years:
- a “Well” for Wesleyana Bible Camp has been completed
- land has been cleared for agricultural projects
- land boundaries identified (110 acres of land) by double rows of coconut trees
- campground has been opened to a large number of participants
- dorms renovated and built to accommodate additional campers
- residences for staff built and renovated.
The current vision includes the development of an electricity grid to the camp. Currently the generators supply costly, limited power, so funds received are going toward this project.
We are encouraged knowing that the campground is a Vibrant, Evangelical, Active Outreach sharing the Good News, Teaching Spiritual Truths from God’s Word, and Teaching how to meet the physical needs of the location. Updates to the Guyana Mission Program will be sent quarterly and we anticipate sending the next letter in early December.
In His Service,
