The village of Powakka is located in central Suriname of South America. Their religious background of the locals consists of a mixture of paganism and polytheism. The countries modern history began with Dutch Colonialism and the official language is Dutch. The greater part of the country consist of Indigenous and unreached people groups of which primarily speak their native tongue. The Powakka people are open to the gospel and after becoming followers of Christ are anxious to be productive for God. Currently at the Powakka Church there is about 130 persons in regular attendance and their building has seating capacity for over 200. They have been able to do a lot of work on their building but need to complete the structure now. Pastor Henkie Sengalmetigo and his wife Judith were converted in there youth from the Muslim faith and have faithfully served in the Suriname AG national church. They have obeyed Gods call for their lives and have worked tirelessly throughout their country. Their work has included evangelizing, planting and building churches. The future for the youth, families and seniors of Powakka will depend on the church being established in this community.
