Belgium has been a prosperous country due to its advantageous geographical location, highly skilled workforce, quality infrastructure and the presence of many international organizations.

This blog post describes the missionary efforts in Belgium after the Brussels terror attack on March 22, 2016. The missionaries in Belgium focus on the power of light to drive out darkness. They are committed to bring knowledge of truth, beauty and goodness to the youth and vulnerable, especially in light of recent horrors. The terror attack was a reminder to us to trust God and rely on Him, even when things are going so poorly in the world.
