The Youth of the Army

We have the best kids in the world in The Salvation Army. They are trusting and growing in the grace of the Lord Jesus remarkably. He must be proud of them. I know I am.

Over the weekend we joined both the youth of the Eastern Victoria Division and the Melbourne Central Division in separate venues, but not separate in Spirit. They sing praises to the Lord and lift up their voices in prayer without reservation. We are beginning to see a new generation of Spiritually focused young people who are not ashamed of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Hallelujah!

Watch for them. Pray for them. Trust them...and don't lead them astray, but lead them to holiness in the name of Christ Jesus.

2 Timothy 2:22 (NIV)
22 Flee the evil desires of youth, and pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace, along with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart.

I agree, we kids are great! What a buzz we had at the MCD Easter Camp! On the Sat. morning when we put our faith into action in Mt. Evelyn - cleaning the streets, one-on-one evangelism, giving away Easter Eggs with a message, Street-Chalk Evangelism, cleaning the Post Office steps and the local sports field. It was great to see the joy in people's faces, reminding them of God's love & renewing their faith in youth & the church! God is ALLright!

I'm so excited about what God is doing among the young people in His Army! He is so good! I was at the Youth Meeting and at Easter Camp. God is stirring up something big in the hearts of young people all around the world in the Salvation Army! It's so exciting! He's calling us, He's using us! He has said to us 'See I am doing a new thing' HALLELUJAH! Thank you for your prayers, love and support. Are you ready for God's mighty revival in the Salvation Army? We say bring it on!!

Yikes Stobie, too much chocolate my friend!!!!! HAHAHA! ;o)
I totally mirror everything everyone is saying about the next generation of our Army.

Guys, God is doing MORE than a new thing in our Army right now, get everyone you know involved in the work of reaching the lost for Jesus and get them FULL of the Spirit... we're getting to that cool bit at the top of the rollercoaster... so scary!

Thanks Jim & Carolyn for keeping an eye out for whats ahead, we truly need God's vision through your leadership right now! Bless you heaps...


The Revolution starts here.
