Guymon, Oklahoma

In the Oklahoma panhandle is a city called Guymon. Most Oklahomans would consider it just another small prairie town, smack-dab in the middle of nowhere. But Guymon is unique. The Guymon area has a huge pork processing plant and several large hog farms. The pork industry has lots of available jobs which have attracted several thousands of immigrants from places such as Sudan, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Somalia, Kenya, Laos, and Burma. Many are fleeing from wars and conflicts, or have come from refugee camps. In addition, it is estimated that as many as 6,000 undocumented workers from Mexico and Guatemala are also working and living in the Oklahoma panhandle.

People from all over the world are coming to this small town; many are from unreached people groups. Most of them have never been exposed to the Gospel. On this trip, your group will have the opportunity to share the message of God’s love and redemption through a variety of service projects, VBS, and personal evangelism.
