Nope, you are all wrong! BRUSSELS, Belgium
What?! Where?! Point me towards danger neopagan!!!!
Seriously though, what denomination was this? Latter day saints? Cause I remember reading an article about one of those preaching in Brussels a while back. He hadn't met with much success ... or indeed ... any. And the interview did take place in a bistro and yes, he was eating a pastry.
Though, in fairness, there are plenty of souls to win in Belgium. Church (Catholic, of course) approval is down to 13%. Church attendence is even lower ... and there's the half a million Muslims. Target rich environment, what!
Be prepared to move somewhere uncomfortable to your western viewpoint
Actually, this is a sentiment that's common to many US-ians ... not just Christian busybodies.
I sometimes listen to AFN The Eagle, with NATO HQ nearby, there is an actual shortwave radiostation here that caters to the US servicemen and women. And judging by that, most of these people stay inside the compound as much as possible. They have their own US-ian schools, libraries, movie theaters, sports clubs, gyms, stores and starbucks. Natives, in radio announcements are often regards as ... aliens basically.
Contact with the locals is discouraged except when part of a typical bus-herd. So, yeah, I can sort of imagine how living in Brussels might seem uncomfortable to a US-ian. Though ... compared to Sana'a ... hmmm.
