Moeders in Gebed (Mothers in Prayer) in Belgium started growing in January 2006 when one of the leaders presented Fern Nichols’ book Every Child Needs a Praying Mom at the National Christian Women’s Day in Belgium.
By 2007, Moms in Prayer in Belgium had grown 20 prayer groups. Two years later, they held their first country event.
In the last years, it has been a delight to see Els Blondeel developing a motivated team serving the Flemish region (Antwerp, Limburg, Flemish Brabant, East Flanders West, Flanders (more of that below). Cathy Ravedoni, recently appointed Country Developer for Belgium, cares for the other areas, including Brussels.
It is such a thrill to know that the Lord continues to put unity in Christ at the heart of building up Moms in Prayer in Belgium. Beyond the different languages and regional politics, Jesus speaks to the heart of mothers crying out together in prayer for their children and schools in Belgium.
