From the moment Carolyn and I signed our covenants with God as Salvation Army officers, we agreed to receive appointments from the movement as from God. We have kept our vow and God is glorified, even to this day. It may well be that others would not have agreed with our understanding, but we have been steadfast in our convictions. It has allowed us to move and to relocate regardless of how we felt or how it all seemed.
Not everyone accepts this possibility, nor would I say that every move made in The Salvation Army is perfect. Not everyone has pledged similarly to the Lord, either. In either scenario God will be glorified by our faithfulness to Him.
Appointments in North America are coming out, one territory at a time. Beautiful people will be on the move. God be with them.
“No prolonged infancies among us, please. We’ll not tolerate babes in the woods, small children who are an easy mark for impostors. God wants us to grow up, to know the whole truth and tell it in love—like Christ in everything. We take our lead from Christ, who is the source of everything we do. He keeps us in step with each other. His very breath and blood flow through us, nourishing us so that we will grow up healthy in God, robust in love.” Ephesians 4:15 MSG
