There is actually a translation of the new testament
online, at www.pidginbible.org. Here's a short
extract:

"Wen we neva have power notting, Christ wen mahke fo
all us guys dat wen ack jalike God no matta. Dass da
time God wen pick. Eh you know, nobody goin mahke fo
one guy dat ony do right kine stuff! If get one guy
dat everytime get good heart, maybe bumbye somebody go
mahke fo help dat kine guy."

I don't think it's terribly hard to figure out from a
standard English perspective, though some of the
vocabulary looks strange.
