The Papiamento Bible was most recently translated in 2013 (Dutch and English are available as well). It is available in hard copy and online. Pray for impact on Papiamento speakers – a majority in Curaçao, but also found in Aruba and the Caribbean Netherlands. Pray also for literacy programmes and more Christian literature in the language. There is a Christian bookstore on Curaçao. Biblical literacy will go a great distance in discipling and renewing the Christian population.
