Find us Faithful
As Salvationists of the USA Eastern Territory,
we commit to transforming communities in the power
of Jesus Christ, one life at a time.
—20/20 Vision statement—
As 2018 draws to a close, we look back with thanksgiving at the lives touched through your ministry over the past 12 months: 518 senior soldiers enrolled, 482 precious young lives committed as junior soldiers, 152 adherents confessing Christ as Savior, and 13,344,405 individuals served! These are not merely numbers; they represent people.
This territory’s 20/20 Vision calls us to step back and look at the PEOPLE whom we are called to serve in His name, the PROGRAMS through which God enables us to impact others, and the PROVISIONS offered through His great mercy.
We call on you once again to prayerfully consider the individuals who cross our paths and enter our doors. In the days ahead, we will most likely see more people over an eight–week period than we do for the remaining 10 months of the year. God has entrusted The Salvation Army with people! May they see Christ in us. May they grow deeper in their faith because of that contact. May lives continue to be changed for the good.
Lord, find us faithful in our role as encouragers. Find us faithful in expressing unconditional love. Find us faithful in follow–up and discipleship. May those who seek find Your joy, peace, and hope. Use us, Lord.
God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work. —2 Corinthians 9:8
