We have been missionaries to the Trio Indians in Suriname since the 1960s, and it is still a great joy for us to be able to minister the Word and share in their joys and concerns.

In 2016, we completed the translation of the Bible in the Trio Indian language and distributed 3,000 copies to four Trio villages. We continued the translation work completing two Bibles for children in 2018. We also assisted with the translation of the Bible School curriculum for the inter-tribal Indian Bible School that is held twice a year. Trio pastors and believers have taken copies of the Bible to villages in Brazil.

We continue to disciple and preach by telephone to four churches on Sundays. We also teach the church leaders during the week. Quite often Trios call us, even from Brazil, to request help in understanding certain Bible truths, to share their ministries, or to request prayer when confronted with sickness in the tribe. Most of the original church leaders of the 1960s have passed away. A new generation has taken over the leadership in those churches, and it is so much easier to help them understand Bible doctrines.
