Chief of the Staff requests prayer for General Shaw Clifton
The Chief of the Staff Commissioner Robin Dunster asks that Salvationists and friends offer special prayer for General Shaw Clifton.
The Commissioner advises that as a result of recent medical tests a cancer has been diagnosed. The doctors believe that it has been found early and is operable. They therefore wish the General to undergo further tests, then some courses of chemotherapy, and eventual surgery.
All of this will take several months. The doctors have advised the General to remain within the United Kingdom between now and the middle of next year in order to complete all aspects of testing and treatment, including the surgery and recovery period.
Apart from international travel, the General will continue to carry out all the normal functions of his office.
“I know that you will uphold the General and Commissioner Helen Clifton through prayer and faith in the months ahead,” Dunster said.
