Step into the hushed echo of the Grand Place of Brussels and you will feel that you are stepping centuries into the past as you gaze up at the beautiful gilded architecture of the ancient central square. Just off the Grand Place you can have a taste of Belgium—rich, silky, smooth chocolate; sugary Liège waffles; or twice-fried potatoes, crisp on the outside and soft on the inside. You will hear French and Dutch, and find two distinct corresponding cultures, the Walloons and the Flemish. Brussels is an international city, as it is home to the European Union and NATO, as well as many immigrants and visitors. Most Belgians have a Roman Catholic heritage, although few are actively involved. All, whether native Belgians, immigrants or visitors, need to know the love of Jesus.
During these sending experiences, the team members will serve alongside our missionaries at LifePoint Brussels. The July team will work with Serve the Church week in Brussels.

LifePoint Sending Teams will work with a team on the ground going deep in language and culture, engaging the local population of over 1 million people, the vast majority of whom have never had the chance to hear the Good News.

South Dakota, the southwestern part of the state in particular, is an unknown beauty to most. Of course many people know about Mount Rushmore and maybe the Black Hills, but did you know the region is a fishbowl for Native American history, especially concerning the Lakota Sioux tribe? The locals sell Native American goods close by and the otherworldly Black Hills are a short drive away; highly recommended if seeing a Mars-like surface interests you, paired with breathtaking vistas! The grave site for the massacre at Wounded Knee is just steps from the church LifePoint serves. By far the most rewarding aspect of serving Wounded Knee happens when a child, hungry for love and food, looks up to see the church group coming their way. The glow in their face will melt even the hardest of hearts!
During these sending experiences, the team members will serve the Lakota people of Wounded Knee South Dakota through community events, kid’s ministry, and men/women mentoring groups on the Indian reservation. The Lakota people of Wounded Knee are some of the poorest in the country with over 81% falling under the poverty line. This sending experience can be a family sending opportunity.
