Bombing Attack in Brussels

Assemblies of God World Missions urges prayer and provides an update regarding personnel serving in Brussels.

I know you share my deep concern for the nation of Belgium following this morning’s three bombings at a subway station and at the international airport in the capital, Brussels.

Currently, 34 deaths have been reported, and the number of wounded has reached 170 and may continue to rise. This tragedy will impact the entire nation.

We have talked with AGWM Europe Regional Director Paul Trementozzi and with missionary Joe Szabo, pastor of our AG international church in Brussels. I am grateful our missionaries across the area are reported to be safe. One of our missionaries arrived at the airport shortly before the bombings there, preparing to pick up a Convoy of Hope team member. The missionary had planned to wait in the very coffee shop where a blast went off, but felt the prompting of the Holy Spirit not to go there. 

I am asking for your faithful intercession in two key areas.

• Pray for the Christians of Belgium who will be gathering this Easter weekend. The bombings are believed to be in response to the arrest of a Muslim terrorist.

• As well, please pray for the many Muslim refugees in need across Europe who are not connected in any way with radical terrorists. Our missionaries have been able to connect with thousands of men, women and children and offer compassionate relief as well as a clear message of hope in Jesus Christ. I know of many former Muslims who now faithfully attend AG churches in Europe.
