Curacao is an island off the coast of Venezuela and is part of the Netherlands Antilles made up of Aruba, Bonaire and Curacao, which are an integral part of the Kingdom of Netherlands with domestic autonomy for each island and a parliamentary democratic government. These islands cover 800 sq. km. with a population of over 225,000. Willemstad is the capital city of Curacao. Dutch is the official language but the common language is Papiamento.
In the early 1950s Cliff and Betty Lee started the ministries in Curacao where a strong church was established and is today being carried on under the leadership of Pastor Michael Look. With the retirement of the Lees in the 1990s and the installation of Pastor Carlos Brunk as the first national pastor after his graduation from Grace Bible College in 1991, GMI no longer has a full-time missionary presence on the island but continues to work with the national church especially in providing Papiamento literature. Carlos pastored the Grace church in Curacao for nine years and after training other men for the ministry felt the Lord leading him to establish other Grace churches in the Netherlands where they founded another grace church in 2001 of primarily Papiamento-speaking people who relocated to Holland from the Dutch Antilles. In 2012 a second church was planted on the island of Curacao, Grace Connection.
