The mission of Guyanese Outreach (GO) is to support the Gospel of Jesus Christ in Guyana, South America, by working with the Guyanese people to strengthen values and enhance their own culture by assisting them to meet their spiritual and physical needs. Founded in 1994, GO assists pastors, provides education, develops and trains Guyanese in job skills, and sends humanitarian aid. It has a youth learning center where it teaches literacy classes. GO’s ministry is supported by Lutheran congregations in the US and Guyana, and it has worked with mission teams from US congregations who have taught Guyanese children Alpha, Vacation Bible School and abstinence. GO has also provided chairs, desks, benches, and Jesus storybooks.
GO now has a partnership with Hebron and Hopeful Lutheran Churches in KY, Emmanuel Lutheran Church in Guyana, and the Ethiopian Evangelical Church Mekane Yesus (EECMY). Through this partnership, a team will be sent to Guyana to work with Guyanese Outreach and Emmanuel Lutheran Church.
It is currently seeking funds to build an addition to its Guyanese education center for computer classes and housing for mission groups.
