One of the world missions ministries at the Belpre Church is the International Mission Force to Guyana, South America. Guyana, meaning "Land of Many Waters," is the only English speaking country in South America and located on the northeast coast. This gently rolling, tropical country 350 miles north of the equator is streaked with massive rivers and waterfalls. Guyana is twice the size of Ohio with only 750,000 people, most of whom are Africans, Amerindians, Asians or continental Indians who live along the Atlantic Coast. Almost 80% of the land is still forested and unexplored. The major Christian denominations are Catholic, Pentecostal and Seventh-Day Adventists, but there are sizeable segments of Muslims and Hindus as well. In 2004, the church was started in Ituni, a virtually abandoned bauxite mining town of about 1,000.
Each year a team is assembled for a one to two week trip, which is generally scheduled in early March. The team works with Churches of Christ in Region 10, which encompasses the town of Linden, the second largest town in Guyana, and surrounding areas which include Ituni, Rosckstone, Amelias Ward and other locations in the interior. The main focus is to preach and teach the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the lost and to encourage the brethren in the local churches.
