Salvation Army Commences Work in Burundi and Greece
Army now official in 113 countries.
International Headquarters has announced that The Salvation Army recently “opened fire” in new countries in Africa and Europe. Work has begun quietly in Burundi and Greece with the appointing of officers to these countries for the first time—by decision of the General in consultation with senior leaders at International Headquarters, in the respective zones and in the neighboring commands.
The work in Burundi, which began officially in Bujumbura under the leadership of Auxiliary Captains Lusomobo Museses Justin and Fatuma Kalema Justine on August 5, 2007, is attached to the Rwanda Command. The work in Greece, which began officially in Thessalonika under Captains Polis Pantelidis and Maria Konti-Galinou on October 1 2007, is attached to the nearby Italy Command.
Salvationists and friends are asked to pray for these new openings, which are made in response to the Great Commission to take the gospel to all nations. Also, please pray for the officers carrying out this pioneering work.
The total number of countries in which The Salvation Army is officially present is now 113.
Please pray also for divine guidance as several other countries in the five zones (Africa, Americas & Caribbean, Europe, South Asia and South Pacific & East Asia) are being evaluated for the commencement of Salvation Army witness and service.
