Mesa sent our first mission team to Guyana in 1995. Our initial efforts led to an annual evangelistic campaign with large teams from several congregations, and we supported several native preachers. We are committed to mature native congregations so they support their own work and preachers.
Modern technology has made "Live Video Conferencing" possible for real-time teaching and interaction with entire congregations. Jerry Cantrell is now able to teach the bible to Guyanese congregations for unlimited nuber of hours from his office in Alabama. In Guyana, we no longer need to fly workers 2000 miles to teach or send funds thousands of miles away to support preachers we don't know.
