Workshops & Seminars

300 dpi 4x5 Port Kaituma 1On January 30, Martha and I flew from Orlando, Florida to Georgetown, Guyana, South America. Yesterday (February 27), we concluded a series of workshops and seminars for Christians and the churches of Christ throughout the ten regions of the country. Early on Monday, Lord willing, we will fly back to the USA.

Through the workshops, two Guyanese evangelists and we encouraged brethren with lessons designed to help save youth and to keep the youth saved. The intention was to stem the tide of wayward teens who are lost to their families and to the Lord’s church as they fall victim to ungodly, worldly influences and to the evil devices of Satan. In the seminars, we provided biblical answers to often-asked religious questions. The former were devised for Christians in general, whereas the latter were presented for preachers and church workers.

Brethren Nigel Milo and Samuel Singh and I taught men’s classes and general audiences. Martha taught ladies’ and children’s classes. It was also my privilege to teach for the Amelia’s Ward Church of Christ in Linden.

We labored among brethren from each of the three primary ethnicities, by the way, who harmoniously worship and fellowship together without distinction. For Guyanese Christians, race is not noteworthy among brethren; surely, Heaven will bear these earmarks, too.

Sometimes, we would be out and about for a week at a time, going to more than one venue before returning to our base in Linden and to the hospitality of the Milos and sister Jasmine’s mother, Bee. We’re no worse for the wear, though Martha once more proved to be bug bait, besides being my hearty and supportive coworker.

Repaired and with a mechanic on board, it finally retrieved us from Monkey Mountain’s gravel airstrip where we had waited all day. After a short hop to and a pause at another aerodrome in the nation’s interior, the same craft finally took us back to the Atlantic coastland.

God was with us, we believe, and we endeavored to be loyal servants of God. We think that Guyanese brethren were edified and empowered to act for themselves. Any praise or glory belongs to our God alone. Praise be Almighty God!
