Guyana faces various threats. Venezuela and Suriname both claim large parts of Guyana’s land. The two main political parties divide along racial lines (Indo-Guyanese versus Afro-Guyanese). The land is rich in biodiversity and natural resources, but is at risk of exploitation by foreign companies and interests. Due to a lack of economic opportunities, many people emigrated, including many of the most talented. Pray for hope to come to Guyana, and for the gospel to transform society.
