Officers, Soldiers, and Friends of The Salvation Army
I am delighted to greet you in the name of our risen Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ! It is my privilege to serve as your General during this exciting occasion of our 150th anniversary.
When William and Catherine Booth Marshalled their tiny forces in East London a century and a half ago, they could surely never have imagined just how God would work throughout the years until today. Their little mission blossomed into an international movement that now ministers in 126 nations. Every day thousands encounter the previous message of salvation through a kind word, a helpful piece of assistance, a grace-filled moment of divine revelation. God has enabled Salvationists to minister in Jesus' name to people of all races, cultures and faith traditions. We serve all people because our Lord loves all people.
In this book you will find a visual record of how Salvationists' love for God is practically demonstrated through a love for humankind right around the world. You will also see that the joy found in God's service is clearly visible among His people. Whilst our work is serious and earnest our way is filled with joy. As the chorus I have heard sung in so many countries rightly declares, 'There is joy in The Salvation Army'!
This book should also serve as a challenge. Whilst great things have been done, greater things must lie before us. The past had its heroes of the faith, but the present calls for a new generation who will boldly and obediently serve selflessly in the name of Jesus. The need is evident, and God will strengthen us beyond anything we can imagine if we are faithful to Him (Ephesians 3:15-21). Give yourself once again to the mission God has placed before you, remembering that His salvation is boundless - the whole world redeeming!
May god bless you, and receive all the glory for that which is accomplished in Jesus' name.
General André Cox
