Stephanie going to Belgium…
Stephanie is communicating regularly with Carol in Belgium. They are communicating about prayer habits, hearing words from God, sleeping accommodations and weather.
Her itinerary will include:
– praying at the EU (European Union) weekly
– House of Prayer for All Nations – Brussels
– International Prayer Team meeting
– Vineyard Church prayer team
Carol is hoping that they will be able to tackle a few tasks that need done in Carol’s apartment. Work is more enjoyable when done with a friend. I am looking forward to hearing Steph’s updates.
Stephanie’s back is still bothering her some. She is most bothered by sitting. Belgium is a long flight from America.
I don’t relate to choosing clothing for the weather; I wear the same stuff all the time. Stephanie is starting the packing process by checking the weather. It seems Belgium will be about the same as we are experiencing here in North Carolina.
EMBC Neighborhood Breakfast…
It is amazing how much time it takes to establish procedures. We are trying to establish easy guidelines for anyone with the gift of service to be able to tackle all the tasks needed to procure food, organize kitchen help, table servers, clean-up crews, set-up teams, table hosts, and more. We love the idea of the possibilities neighborhood breakfast can accomplish.
I tell people, “Neighborhood breakfast at EMBC endeavors to meet the deepest need of the displaced through food, friendship, and personal development.”
I see this as an introduction to the church’s benevolence program. This last breakfast I saw many faces from the neighborhood that I haven’t seen before.
Stephanie’s trip to Belgium: She will be visiting Carol Britton, a 65+ year old missionary who has served there for the last 29 years.

“We fix broken hearts and parts.”
We come alongside ministries providing practical solutions to everyday problems. This builds a trust between us that enables those in ministry to openly communicate what is in their hearts. We see freedom come as Jesus guides us in healing lives. These times of refreshing are great morale boosters offering the edge needed to effectively minister.
