“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things
are become new.”
—2 Corinthians 5:17
In the next issue, we’ll take you on a virtual trip to the Akron (Citadel) Ohio, Corps where Salvationists are partnering with NASA to grow fruits and vegetables above the ground, soil free—hydroponically. What was once inconceivable has become a viable and fresh idea.
We’ll also discover how new foundations are being laid in the Puerto Rico & Virgin Islands Division. The Salvation Army continues to be a beacon of hope for the people there who face serious ongoing problems in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria.
As a new hurricane season rears its ugly head, how will the Army help lay a strong spiritual foundation? We’ll provide some answers.
Finally, if you’re a baseball fan, you’ll probably remember a player named Darryl Strawberry. Today, the former major league slugger is a personification of 2 Corinthians 5:17.
In an exclusive interview, you’ll read how he’s put the glitz, glamour, and celebrity of professional sports in a new context. He’s also turned the pain, suffering, and misery of drug addiction into an inspiring testimony and has emerged a new creation in Christ.
It will be an exciting read. Join us!
