  Guyana 
Description
Known formerly as British Guiana, Guyana derives its name from an Amerindian word meaning "land of waters," seen today across the narrow coastal plain protected by dikes and criss-crossed by canals. Seventh-day Adventists witness in English, Creole, and Hindi. Because of economic instability and frequent devaluation of the Guyana dollar, there is a growing lack of human resources within the church; one pastor may care for as many as 12 churches. ADRA and its airplane pilot director do much in an isolated area to share the message, and many of the nation's evangelistic campaigns are conducted by the youth. There is an Adventist hospital in Georgetown, but Adventist schools were outlawed in 1976.
