Church: How are you being THE CHURCH in this new reality?
And from his report of the first day:
Tonight we kicked off the GLS in Brussels. This was the second year for this site. Last year we had 170 people (which was very good for this country) and this year we have close to 250. Very encouraging to see momentum grow. For years the leaders of the GLS in Belgium have prayed for a Willow conference to come to Belgium. Belgium is probably the least Christian country in Western Europe. I believe less than 1/2 a % are actual born again Christians. This is not an easy place to build a church. But they have such a heart to see lost people come to Christ. This is the team that calls me at midnight their time with questions... I asked them how tonight went and they said just to see so many people here is the reward for them.
We are always so inspired to hear about the work of our partners overseas, despite the conditions they are up against. Check out our twitter page for more of our rogue reporter's experience. Also, our hashtags #globalsummit and #gls09 give great insights into what's going on globally. Check back Monday for in-depth stories of transformation.
