Getting supplies in and out of the small river locked village we serve in is expensive and time consuming because we currently have to hire boat drivers to take us to the coast each week, or sometimes several times a week. We are praying now for a suitable boat that will not only be able to help the missionaries in Bethany get to supplies easier and cheaper, but will also provide for a boat outreach ministry.
Not long after arriving to the Bethany, we took a trip to the coast for supplies. As we road the boat there and back I began praying and asking God to give us a way to reach the many, many homes and people along the waterways. Each of these homes have no access except by water. We don’t yet know what this will look like, but feel convinced that there are many along these waterways that need prayer, an encouraging word or possibly would even be receptive to Bible studies if we came to them.
After researching the options we believe an 18 foot Jon boat, with a wide width (for stability while hauling large supplies) or something similar would be a huge blessing for the work here in Bethany Village. Will you please help us pray for God’s guidance to a sturdy boat that would be suited for hauling people and goods, and spreading the Gospel along the waterways here in Guyana?
