Today was a great day. After spending the night on the street of the wooden cross, I said goodbye to my hosts German missionaries Berthold and Renatta.
I had my new sidekick Ben, who followed my every move with his all seeing lens. He has taken almost 350 pictures of me in 2 days, and his camera still works.
This morning I awoke to the news, that I was a minor celebrity, as I had made the dutch speaking newspaper. I met a number of people who had read about me in the paper today.
So today we made it to Brussels at the heart of the European Union. Around lunchtime as we were passing the large Roman Catholic basilica, we met some priests outside, who told me they thought what I was doing was inspiring, with that we were promptly invited in for lunch.
Those who are close to me will find the fact of me having lunch with a crowd of Catholic priests highly amusing.
This is Ben my accomplice showing some of his pictures to one of the guys at the Catholic church.
We pushed on into the city, and had plenty of opportunities to share, I was a little embarrassed at my lack of French literature, but somehow we got by with Flemish and English tracts. I got mobbed on a couple of occasions by young people who had seen me in the newspaper,
The walk ended symbolically at a house of prayer just a stones throw away from European commission. I joined with about 20 other Christians in praying for the Nation of Belgium. God gave me some great confirming prophetic words, what a fantastic way to wrap up the walk.
