This post showcases five Gospel songs by the Surinamese group Messenger or by vocalists Farello & Siphora from that group.
Information about Suriname is also included in this post.
Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find any information about the Messengers or in English or in any language that Google translate translates (besides that Farello's and Siphora's last name is "Betterson" - I think.)
I haven't found any lyrics for these songs online or any information about these songs. I think the language use in these songs is Sranan Tongo. I'd love to add the English translation of these titles, and any information about these songs and about the Messengers and Farello and Siphora.

INFORMATION ABOUT SURINAME
"Suriname (... also spelled Surinam), officially known as the Republic of Suriname (Dutch: Republiek Suriname, Dutch pronunciation: [ˌreːpyˈblik ˌsyːriˈnaːmə]), is a sovereign state on the northeastern Atlantic coast of South America. It is bordered by French Guiana to the east, Guyana to the west and Brazil to the south. At just under 165,000 km2 (64,000 sq mi), it is the smallest country in South America.[note 1] Suriname has a population of approximately 566,000, most of whom live on the country's north coast, in and around the capital and largest city, Paramaribo.
Originally inhabited by a number of indigenous tribes, Suriname was explored and contested by European powers before coming under Dutch rule in the late 17th century. In 1948 the country gained autonomy and in 1954 it became one of the constituent countries of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. On 25 November 1975, the country of Suriname left the Kingdom of the Netherlands to become an independent state, nonetheless maintaining close economic, diplomatic, and cultural ties to its former colonizer.
Suriname is considered to be a culturally Caribbean country, and is a member of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM). Dutch is the sole official language, and is the language of education, government, business, and the media. At the same time, Sranan, an English-based creole language, is a widely used lingua franca, while English is also spoken by the majority of the younger populace. Suriname is the only territory outside Europe where Dutch is spoken by a majority of the population. The people of Suriname are among the most diverse in the world, spanning a multitude of ethnic, religious, and linguistic groups."...
