Global Go Team | Guyana
Guyana

In 2009 the Global Go Team took an amazing trip to Guyana. We were able to build two 450 gallon water towers.  The first was in the Amerindian village along Lake Capoii.  The second tower went up along a tributary of the Pomeroon River called Dredge Creek.  Both communities serve a large number of Amerindians.  In addition to providing water towers we were able to meet with the tribal counsel in Lake Capoii and get permission to bring medical supplies into the village.  We were also able to help financially within the community as well.

Guyana Project 2010

On August 27th 2010 our team heads to Guyana again to build an additional two water towers in communities along the Pomeroon River.  The first one will be put up in the twin cities of Saint Monica/Karawab. Next our team will be working with the Arawak tribe in the town of Mashabo, building an additional tower in that region.  This year in addition to the water towers we are fundraising to install a water filter system.  These filters will help during the dry season and encourage people to not drink directly from the river.  These filters use reverse osmosis, carbon filters (including pre and post filters) and U.V. light to purify the water.  They are field reparable and we plan on training local technicians to manage the systems.  These systems can purify ½ to 1 ½ gallons per minute of water and cost approximately a $1000-1500 per unit depending on the configuration.  Each village will receive extra filters and every year our team will come back and service the machines.

 

Lebanon

The Global Go Team is cosponsoring a bible college in Lebanon to train new Muslim converts.  Before the civil war in Lebanon the Christian population was 52% in 1960.   Today that number has dropped to 32%.  Lebanon’s government divides the nation’s rule between Christians and Muslims.  Its land is even zoned for either religion. A great deal of openness exists in Lebanon.  A tolerance has grown that has come at a great price.  Yet the country continues to shift towards radical Muslim schools of thought.  There is a timely need for Catholic, Orthodox and Protestant churches to work together to encourage those Christians remaining and to take a proactive role in protecting the heritage of Lebanon by remembering the great commission of Jesus Christ and sharing their faith with others.  A biblical studies institution is desperately needed, and especially an institution that is geared towards those who have recently been converted from Islam.

United States

Springfield is the headquarters of the Global Go Team, and the center for U.S. based operations. In the United States the team focuses on helping provide emergency food supplies to needy families, as well as helping schools in need get the supplies they require. The goal of the team in disaster relief is to provide quick and effective service to regions hit hard by natural disaster.
