Early on the morning on November 26, 2013 seven new missionaries arrived from the MTC in Provo. Six Elders and one Sister.
Welcome to the Belgium Netherlands Mission, we have been waiting for you and you join a mighty work. We are involved with the 'Hastening of Salvation' and building of a 5th Stake. We are happy you are here to help move the work forward! You are so very needed!
