One small step for man…. 

July 1969, Neil Armstrong, setting foot on the moon for the first time, said, “One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind!” Fifty years later, it is the Creator of the Universe Himself Who comes to place His footprint in the centre of the smallest of our towns, one more giant leap for the Kingdom of God!  

This summer, the new programme of Boost*, “To infinity” introduced children to the One Who knows all the stars and gives each of them a name. By our faithful ‘small steps’ over several years in Ganshoren, Herstal and Gembloux but also in our investment in various groups in the town, the League of Families, the Intergenerational House, the Red Cross… our firm footing  in the town has allowed us to live out and to share our faith freely. In Gembloux, we have even received a subsidy from the council to cover the cost of our activities. Nothing is too difficult for the Creator!
