New Captains

The General commissioned Thirty-eight new Captains today in Hershey, Pennsylvania. We were there to witness this advance in the Kingdom. They were appointed all over the USA Eastern Territory and each received their new addresses for service with joy. One has already been changed within hours of the announcement.

Please understand this personal note. Two of the new Captains commissioned have the surname Knaggs. Our oldest son and his great wife, Jason and Leslie have successfully completed their studies and training and join the ranks of the called, the covenanted, and the commissioned few known as officers in TSA. This is a great day. God be glorified!

The call for officership in the meeting exceeded 140 on the platform. Wow! Bring it on, Lord!

1 Timothy 1:12 (NIV)
12 I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has given me strength, that he considered me faithful, appointing me to his service.

Amen, If only there were more! I spoke with someone on the weekend who is totally ignoring God's call on their life to step up and lead others into the kingdom. It breaks my heart. Please pray for this person

God Bless

Jim,
We just had a week at Creative Arts Camp and then Youth Councils over the weekend that followed the camp here in Tassie. I put a call out to full time service on Sunday morning and we had 13 come forward for prayer about this. There are 4 out of this group that have the potential to exceptional officers.
Praise God!!!
Glad your weekend went well.
