Like many countries in Continental Europe, only 1% of the population of Belgium are Christians.
The country is linguistically divided, with the Flemish-speaking Flanders in the north and the French-speaking Wallonia in the south. Brussels, although officially bilingual is majority French-speaking.
Robbie and Lizzie are working in Brussels amongst French-speakers seeking to share the gospel with unbelievers and build up believers in their faith.
Robbie is the assistant pastor at the Eglise Protestante Evangélique de Bruxelles-Woluwe (Woluwe Evangelical Church) in east Brussels, where he runs the student work. He also teaches one day a week at the Institut Biblique Belge (Belgian Bible Institute) training men and women for gospel ministry and is in the process of writing his Masters' thesis.
Lizzie is a full-time mum to Lola, Caleb and Mia and she helps out with the women's and children's work at the church.
They have been in Belgium since 2011.

‘I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.’ John 16:33
Having recently given a seminar on the dangers of the prosperity gospel, we have been aware again that the Bible promises suffering in the Christian life. Whether that be from living in a world after the Fall and under the divine curse, or suffering specifically for being Christian, the Bible tells us again and again that we will suffer. We do Christians great harm if we don’t prepare them for suffering. To persevere with joy in the Christian life and ministry, we must be aware that suffering awaits us now, that God works through suffering to make us more like Jesus and that the new creation will be glorious beyond imagining!
