Guyana trip report
Wow, what a trip! My friend, Ed van Lierop joined me on the
trip. We asked some of you to pray and he agreed that we
could certainly feel God answering.
Here is a brief report:
- On Saturday we met with 20 students and facilitators and were
blessed by their zeal to take the gospel across the nation.
One pastor in particular testified how his church had grown ever
since he started reaching out to people far away.
- On Sunday we preached in 2 Churches and again could see how the
Holy Spirit was touching people's lives. We had the
opportunity to pray for the sick as well. In the afternoon we
attended the graduation of the 2nd Live School in Guyana. 11
Students graduated and it was a wonderful celebration. They
have been going through Live School for 18 months now.
Take a few minutes to watch this rough cut video about the
graduation. Watch till the end to see what a joyous
celebration it was.
- On Monday we started the facilitator training. Well, we
were amazed by the caliber of people God sent. As we showed
the first DVD, all present were touched by "Ultimately it is not
missions, its worship". Again, we could see how the Holy
Spirit opened their eyes to see that everyone in the world needs to
hear the gospel and they need to be part of the team. In the
end we train facilitators for 4 new schools.
- On Wednesday we had the opportunity to record a TV program
that was broadcast last Sunday. The interviewer would not
stop and went 10 min overtime, he got so excited about Live
School. Please pray that many people will respond to
the challenge to get trained.
- Wednesday evening I preached in the church and was overjoyed
when 2 people gave their life to the Lord! After church, we
walked home and as we passed a home we were asked to come pray for
a young muslim man who was having seizures due to kidney
problems. We pray fervently for him and later that night he
was admitted to hospital. This morning we got a report that
after he woke up, and was told by his wife how the Christian
community cared for him, he said that he wants to become a
Christian. Praise God for this!
As we met with the volunteers on the ground and took stock of the
schools running, we found that 12 schools with 80 students are
running in Guyana and Suriname.
God willing this number will grow to 16 soon.
One day while teaching, this statement just bubbled out of my
mouth. "Prayer takes you there." When you prayed for
us, you were part of the above, you were there with us in
spirit. Thank you. This was the most productive trip
I've had to Guyana and I believe God answering your prayers made
God bless you.
