Living water for a thirsty world
David A. Paher’s heart’s desire has always been to take Christ’s gospel to the others in the world. After over ten years in local ministry, the eldership of the Richmond Church of Christ commissioned Brother Paher to evangelize the people of Guyana, South America. Only thirty of the approximately 150 Amerindian villages (18%) have congregations of the Lord’s church; eighteen of those (12%) have regular meeting houses.
The aim is three-fold. First, congregations need grounding in the work of God and the doctrine of Christ. Quarterly seminars are conducted to equip members for their daily walk and weekly worship. Second, while all of the Guyanese ministers are graduates of a Bible school, they still need to be strengthened and encouraged. Individual attention is given to provide the resources they need. Third, mature US congregations are paired with Guyanese assemblies to provide overarching attention in Companion Churches ministries.
Brother Paher’s many visits to Guyana has helped him to witness the good soil and harvest and to understand the unique challenges to a third-world rural work as what is done in Guyana’s interior regions. God’s servants have a tough time getting to the most remote areas but so does Satan’s worldly devices. This fact makes Guyana a special place for evangelistic ministry.
Brother Paher is not alone in his work. Since many cannot personally travel to Guyana, several individuals and churches partner with him prayerfully and financially so that the evangelistic efforts may continue.
