The Walloons are the second largest people group in Belgium after the Fleming and they live in a region in the south of Belgium called Wallonia. The capital is Namur and they mainly speak French.
Those Walloon who are religious are mainly Catholics and they are an even more secular people than the Fleming. There are divisions in general amongst the Walloon and the Fleming.
Most Walloons live in the cities. Their houses have large kitchens and there is often a place in their homes for a business. Most of them get married in their middle to late twenties. There is an increase in the number of divorces among them.
The Walloon like spicy foods as well as soup and they drink a lot of coffee. They have made a large contribution to modern art. They like football, racing pigeons and enjoy gardening. Going to cafes with friends after work is something that the Walloon like to do too.
* Scripture Prayers for the Walloon in Belgium.
* Pray that the Walloon will find secularism empty and turn to Jesus Christ.
* Pray that through the love of gardening among the Walloon that Belgian Christians who like gardening could befriend them and lead them to salvation too.
