Building a support team is a vital part of the preparation. Of course the BEM will provide training—and there is so much to learn (especially because it is all in Dutch!). But we also need a lot of practical help. The store is open Tuesday-Saturday from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m., so we must find partners who will volunteer some time on a regular basis to work with us in the store. We also need helpers to take book tables to churches all over the area with us (we have no car or license).
We, the Belgian Evangelical Mission, are very thankful that God has called William and Lyssa Bode to serve Him in The Good Book (The Good Book is a donation- supported ministry of the BEM).
