Advances in Poland—In observation of Poland’s national Grandparents Day, Salvationists visited a Catholic eventide home, receiving a positive response from residents and nuns. Relationships have since developed, and newcomers are attending the Sunday service.
Once a month the corps organizes a fellowship evening, where people can introduce their friends to the Army in an informal setting.
The corps moved its Sunday afternoon worship service to the other side of the river, where they believe God wants them to minister. Attendance is growing; they may soon need a larger space.
Narva corps reaches out—Western officers Captains Daniel and Anya Henderson, corps officers in Narva, Estonia, and their team organized a youth camp for three days this winter; it was a life-changing experience for many.
Recently they enrolled four junior soldiers—two of them the Hendersons’ eldest children—as well as three adherents. Henderson states that ministry in Narva is a process of winning people one by one.
The corps’ thrift store is a means both of financial support and ability to provide clothing and humanitarian aid to the community. Recently they were able to give six wheelchairs to the Invalids Society.
The corps is looking for a permanent location in Narva. They request the prayers of Western Salvationists and friends for the right property at the right time.
