Kalgoorlie, Western Australia


Moving due East from Perth in Western Australia, we come to Kalgoorlie and Boulder. In these communities, TSA is beautifully missional with a corps, Men's Hostel, Youth Crisis Accommodation Centre, two Op Shops and plenty of other services that are needed and valued here. Captain Lynn Jones is the corps officer in this mining city of approximately 30,000. She is supported by a capable professional staff and helpers of all sorts.

We were able to meet with quite a few of our supporters at the corps for afternoon tea. (Australia is a civilised country) Each one gave witness to the compelling gospel that comes from Captain Jones. Hallelujah!

Our salute today goes to the whole team here in Kalgoorlie. Coming this way for employment? There's a good Army awaiting you.

1 Thessalonians 1:2 (NIV)
2 We always thank God for all of you, mentioning you in our prayers.

Many memories, our first two year as officers were at Kal.

Captain Lynn Jones is superwoman!! There is no doubt that she has the POWER of the Holy Spirit working through her. There is no way that she could do what she does without the Power of God :D

I'm always excited to hear about what is happening in Kal, thanks for the update!
