At Our Linden, Guyana Base

Sunday, February 23, 2014, Bonnie and I worshipped morning and evening with the Amelia’s Ward Church of Christ in Linden, Guyana. Bible class commenced at 8:30 a.m. and morning worship concluded about 11:30 a.m.—three hours! No one was complaining, escaping quickly or trying to beat the Baptist to the local eatery. Brethren actually seemed desirous of being there, and they sang more praises than typically comprise six worship periods back home in the USA.

Brethren lingered still after dismissal. Many remained for meetings respecting future cross country mission trips within Guyana or to make plans for hosting a sister congregation the next week, as well as hosting friends and family, too.

That night, the diehard faithful assembled once more for another hour and a half, stayed after to enjoy conversing with each other, and had a short men’s class before parting company.

The Amelia’s Ward Church of Christ is one of the most remarkable and active congregations of the Lord’s church of which I am aware anywhere on planet earth. It was my good pleasure to teach the a.m. Bible class and preach the evening sermon. Tomorrow, we head out for another four-day series of seminars before returning to Linden Thursday night.
