A mission trip to Monkey Mountain
MONKEY MOUNTAIN, Guyana — ‘The church was encouraged, the Gospel was shared and four souls were saved. To God be all the glory always.”
Members of the Amelia’s Ward Church of Christ in Linden, Guyana, posted that short message after a mission team from the congregation traveled to Monkey Mountain, a village in the South American nation’s interior named for the red howler monkeys that populate its trees. The village is just north of the Brazil border.
After landing on the village’s airstrip in a bush plane, the team slept in tents, hosted Bible classes and worshiped with a small Church of Christ planted among Guyana’s indigenous people.
