The Church of Christ on #Wakenaam Island in Guyana, South America was started about two decades ago, but through attrition had nearly dried up. Through the efforts of David A. Paher from the Richmond Church of Christ in Richmond, Kentucky and Neil Richey and Scott Ihle of the Piedmont Road Church of Christ in Marietta, Georgia, efforts were made during April 16-23, 2016 to revive this dead church, which hadn’t assembled together for over two years. Three Christians were found, and the Lord added three additional souls during that week, in effect doubling the size of the congregation. Continued efforts are made to help this small church to continue to grow.
