WOMEN in MINISTRY: past, present, and future
“Some of my best men are women.”
—General William Booth, Founder
From the Salvation Army’s inception, women have played a significant role in its formation and in its growth.
As you read this SAConnects, you’ll see articles and summaries in either English or Spanish that will explore the ministries in which women have been and continue to be crucial to the Army’s success.
Also included is a special tribute to General Eva Burrows (Ret.), recently promoted to Glory. An inspiring leader, she helped pave the way for today’s Army women, such as Colonel Janet A. Munn. This year, Colonel Munn will assume leadership of the College for Officer Training (CFOT) as its first woman principal.
We’ll share how “Impact 150”—the territory’s initiative to have 100 new cadets join the “Joyful Intercessors” session this year at CFOT—is moving forward.
In “FAITH in ACTION,” you’ll see what’s happening locally, as well as hear from Alastair Bate, who is helping people on the island of Vanuatu recover from devastating Cyclone Pam.
By the way, please accept my sincere thanks for your many encouraging letters and prayers in response to our premier SAConnects. We’ll be sure to select a few and publish them in our next issue!
