  Guam 
Description
A self-governing unincorporated territory of the United States of America since 1899, Guam is heavily dependent upon the presence of the U.S. Navy and Air Force for its economy. The Guam-Micronesia Mission operates three clinics, seven academies, 14 elementary schools, and an FM radio station. Guam is also home of the first Adventist World Radio center. Work in Guam began when an Adventist pharmacist sailor from Oregon, USA returned after the war. Nine members of a prominent local family were baptized the next year, and in 1948 the first church was organized. Youth from the academy have organized the Carpenter's Club which has made two trips each to Yap and Chuuk to help build a school and church.
