Leslie and Elizabeth have lived in Mechelen for the majority of that time and until just recently, Leslie was the Pastor of the Hamme Evangelical Centre.
The Flemish Council of the Belgium Evangelical Mission recently decided it was no longer financially viable to keep the Church building in Hamme operable. So the Hamme church closed and the members dispersed among other churches in the area.
Leslie and Elizabeth have become members of the Evangelical Church in St. Niklaas. Leslie is responsible for the Hamme part of the congregation, together with serving as Chaplin at Antwerp prison and having an itinerant ministry in Belgium and the Netherlands.
Leslie and Elizabeth visited the Church May 2016, Leslie preached at the morning service and gave an update of his work, and shared a time of fellowship.
