Do you like to party? The Portuguese in Belgium certainly do. This long-established community is proud of both their heritage and their newly-adopted home. Portuguese bookshops, trade unions, and cultural associations exist in Brussels. A bi-cultural people, the Portuguese in Belgium love to work, raise their family, and play hard. Especially connected to pop culture, video-games, movies, and the internet, the Portuguese have some of the highest internet-usage per capita of any European peoples. Intercede that Christian workers will explore new forms of evangelization through social media and online presence to reach this group. Pray that the Portuguese in Belgium will fall deeply in love with God and channel their energy into worshipping Him.
Remember the vision, prayerwalking and strategy team joining TEAM BELGIUM (WESTERN MEDITERRANEAN CLUSTER) from FBC Woodstock, GA from Aug. 31 – Sept. 8. They will be helping with a church launch, doing prayerwalking in the target neighborhood, meeting with people who are actively engaging those who are victims of human trafficking, and helping to plan some projects for the coming months and years.
Rejoice with TEAM BELGIAN NATIONALS (WESTERN MEDITERRANEAN CLUSTER) for two new brothers and several others who are very close! The Gent Festivals were cold, rainy and poorly attended, so their focus was on locals. The 23 person volunteer team worked well together, although coming from three different states and at least six different churches. These are the first fruits. Praise the Lord of the Harvest!
Yum! Can you smell them? The cookies are baked and the BELGIAN NATIONALS TEAM (WESTERN MEDITERRANEAN CLUSTER) are leading volunteers to pack them up and give them out during the massive Gent (Belgium) festivals July 17-25. During these ten days, there will be nearly 2 million visitors. Ask that many will come to know the Lord this year!
