Garret in Guyana: Days 5 & 6

Bro. Kirchway ready to preach to a classroom at Charleston Secondary School
Day 5

Brother Kirchway worked on his sermons for part of the day while it was raining, but when the rain let up, he went out soul winning in the neighborhood where he is staying. This area, which is considered affluent, wasn’t as receptive as other neighborhoods he has been to, but he was still able to get two people saved.

Day 6

Garrett had set up an appointment the night before for them to preach at a secondary school in Georgetown. The principal seemed to have a great attitude over the phone and told them they would be preaching to around 600 students. When they walked in that morning, things had changed. The principal had a totally different demeanor, and it seemed like she didn’t even want them to be there. Thankfully, they were able to talk her into letting them preach to at least some of the students.

The principal talked to a supervisor who was very excited about letting them preach to his group of students. Brother Kirchway ended up with an audience of about 50 students total from two different classrooms. When Brother Kirchway was setting up the camera to video tape the assembly, the principal told them that would not be allowed. They were able to snap a few photos even though they didn’t film the presentation (see photo above).

They preached the Gospel to those 50 kids, and both the students and their supervisor seemed very receptive. The supervisor seemed to be enjoying it and even pulled out his iPhone and filmed some of the presentation. Brother Kirchway estimated that around 35-40 of the kids raised their hand indicating that they wanted to be saved before he led them in a group prayer. Hopefully, many of them understood and believed. On the way out, each student was issued a sermon flash drive loaded with key sermons.

Brother Kirchway asked someone why they thought the principal had changed her mind about having them speak to the entire school, and he said that she was a devout Seventh Day Adventist. Maybe she had talked to someone and found out that Baptists do not believe the same way as Seventh Day Adventists about salvation.

“Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law.” Romans 3:28

Here is a sermon exposing the Seventh Day Adventists
