Burcht, Belgium (BNc) — On Sunday, June 13, the sixteen who assembled in Burcht could speak nineteen languages!
The English-language congregation that meets in Burcht, Belgium (across the river from Antwerp) is small. Sixteen were present on Sunday. Two regulars were absent. Brother Philip Dela and his family from the church in Maastricht, Holland were visiting, and Philip preached on the need for humility to avoid backsliding and apostasy. There were two visitors from the church in Eindhoven, Holland.
It was a foretaste of heaven. Part of the New Song is, “For You were slain, and have redeemed us to God by Your blood out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation” (Revelation 13:7).
Those gathered to remember the Lord’s death could communicate in nineteen langauges: Aramaic, Bassar, Chinese, Dutch, English, Ewe, Gallego, German, Fanti, French, Italian, Nzema, Papiamento, Polish, Portugese, Sign language for the deaf, Spanish, Turkish and Twi.
Roel De Gruyter and Roy Davison work with this congregation.
