AUSTRALIA—The Salvos Stores in the Australian Southern Territory partnered with MobileMuster to change the planet and humanity.

Most of the stores will feature a MobileMuster collection box for the disposal of old mobiles (cell phones) and accessories. The Salvos will receive $2 for every kilogram (2.2 pounds) collected through their stores. This will keep the estimated 22 million old and unused cell phones in Australia out of landfills while also supporting The Salvation Army.

 CANADA—When Corps Officer Major Miriam Stevens of Lindsay, Ontario, and Community Ministries Director Rene van der Meijden searched for a new outreach approach, they decided on a program called “Messy Church.”

Whole families attend Messy Church. The kids enjoy crafts and activities while parents share a meal, music and a Bible message. Meetings take place outside normal worship times.

Currently, approximately two-thirds of Messy Church attendees are from the community.
