A Victorious Church: Mission Without Limits Site Thriving in Guyana

By: Min. Timmeon Spencer, Caribbean Field Global Missions Coordinator

In August of 2021, the Caribbean Global Missions Team launched Mission Without Limits across the Districts of the Caribbean Field.

During its launch, the District Superintendent of the Guyana: Demerara-Essequibo District, Rev. Dr. Alphonso Porter, identified the Yarrowkabra Community as one of the target sites for Guyana. The church there at the time was in desperate need of revival. Its buildingโ€™s doors were closed, its ministries were dysfunctional and for 14 months it was dormant without anything happening.

A group of five local missionaries led by Min. Timmeon Spencer (Global Missions Coordinator Caribbean Field), took up the challenge and volunteered their service for five days in the area, and that week God worked miracles. As a result of the five days of missions, the once-dormant church reopened on August 29th, 2021. To ensure that the momentum didn’t die, however, Min. Timmeon volunteered to remain there for four months to serve the people and reconnect the church with the community.

As we fast-forward to three months later (seven months since the original church reopening), God has gone above and beyond. Here are a few notable things that have transpired since:

Please remember to pray for the Yarrowkabra Church and for their new pastor as he leads the people of the community. May our omnipotent God continue to build His Church upon the Rock at Yarrowkabra and may the gates of hell never prevail.
