Wilma Gallet

On the first Sunday we conducted corps meetings in Australia, we met Wilma Gallet. A soldier of the Ferntree Gully Corps, she is the celebrated founder of Employment Plus and an exceptional Christian lady.

Among her many accomplishments in the fields of social programme, she wrote TSA's response to the National Youth Commission's report on youth homelessness in Australia. it's called Finding My Place and it is a quality booklet that describes the mission of TSA among youth in Australia. You can download it or acquire a copy at TSA.

Thank you Wilma, for your witness, your faithfulness and your extraordinary service.

Psalms 119:114 (MSG)
114 You're my place of quiet retreat; I wait for your Word to renew me.

Then why did the Army give her 'marching orders' from Employment Plus? Glad that her attributes and value are now being recognised by you - better late than never! A great lady!

Wilma is a true servant of God and such an inspiration to me, and many others. I thank God for such a wonderful and strong example of Christ within our ranks. Thank you for acknowledging this true hero! :)

Wilma has a real heart for the mission of William Booth and a willingness, love and commitment to the example Christ has provided to each one of us. Wilma is a beautiful heart and a true visionary. I would ask all Christians and fellow Salvationists to support Wilma in prayer. Sharon
