Suriname Bible Society has the opportunity to work in the three small countries located at the northeast coast of South America: Suriname, Guyana and French Guyana. Working in these three different countries with each one having their own identity, ethnic, religion and language groups, social and economic structure is an extra motivation to reach everyone in these countries with the word of God. Pray for those that need to hear the word that they would have it in their preferred format, audio, visual or print. Praise God for the new Bible in Sranang Tongo and pray for the ongoing Bible translation into Surinamese Javanese.
