Guyana Project Overview

    Adventist World Aviation exists to provide aviation and communications support to those serving the physical, mental, and spiritual needs of the unreached and forgotten peoples of the earth.

    The US Center for World Mission estimates that 40% of the world is still considered unreached with the good news of salvation through Jesus Christ (www.joshuaproject.net).Approximately a third of these people live behind geographic barriers that AWA has been called to breach.

    To own, operate, manage and maintain aircraft to facilitate medical services, community development, spiritual growth and educational activities in remote areas of the world.

   The purpose of Project Airpower is dual-faceted. Based in Guyana, South America, the first objective of the project is to improve the quality of life for indigenous people groups (Amerindians) located within Guyana’s jungle interior (Region 1). This is accomplished by providing aviation transportation to facilitate medical services, spiritual growth, education and community development. These efforts must necessarily be long-term. The need for sustainability via increased local participation and ownership of native ministry is, in part, answered by the results of objective #2: to develop ministry methods that will increase the East Indian membership of the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Guyana. Guyana ranks 5th in the world in terms of Hindu population per capita and yet the church remains largely African. To augment both of these objectives, AWA plans to construct a volunteer center on land leased from the Guyana Conference within the conference compound. The building will serve as a staging area for ministry activities by facilitating research, orientation, strategic planning and debriefing to equip volunteers to be more productive in their respective ministry assignments.
