For years BEM has wanted to offer short mission trips as a service to the Flemish churches. Now that there are workers willing to take on this ministry and that we have found a suitable partner-organisation in the Kontaktmission this longing is becoming reality. Under the leadership of our co-workers Matthias and Sabine Valenta and Gerrit and Karen de Jongh we want to develop this kind of mission trip in the future.
Our aims are to stimulate Flemish interest in world mission, to offer real short-term possibilities for serving God abroad, to help each participant discover God’s plan for their life, to help growth in personal relationships with Jesus and to bring together practical work and evangelistic work.
The mission trips are intended for over sixteens. In principle there is no upper age limit.
Mission trips 2013: 02.07 – 14.07: Hongaria/Slovakia
For each trip there will be an obligatory weekend of preparation with the aim of getting to know each other, for personal training and for preparation of the programme.

“Mission Possible” – mission trip to Hungari/Slovakia 2012
During the summer Matthias & Sabine Valenta and Gerrit & Karen de Jongh went with a Flemish team (13 people) on a mission trip to Hungary/Slovakia. They worked there together with missionaries of the Kontaktmission. In Hungary they were involved in street evangelization, distribution and practical work. In Slovakia they mainly did evangelism under the Roma’s (Gypsies). It was a very impressive experience for the whole team and they saw God’s blessing during this campaign.
