Salvation Army Now Officially Operating in 125 Countries

General Bond approves the opening of Salvation Army work in Greenland as of August 2012.

The General has given approval to the opening of Salvation Army work in Greenland as from August 8, 2012, bringing the number of countries in which the Army officially operates to 125.

Greenland is an autonomous country within the Kingdom of Denmark. The Army’s work in Greenland will thus be under the supervision of the Denmark Territory.

In December 2011 Colonel Birgitte Brekke (Territorial Commander, Denmark) was invited to visit Greenland to explore the potential for Salvation Army work there. The colonel, along with the Chief Secretary (Lieut-Colonel Henrik Andersen), took up that offer and visited Greenland in January 2012, subsequently filing a report to International Headquarters which recommended the commencement of Army work in Greenland without delay. The report – which indicated strong encouragement from government, church and community bodies – was carefully studied by the International Management Council, under the chairmanship of the General, and approval was given to proceed.

Lieutenants Magnus and Petura Haraldsen were commissioned by the General during her visit to Denmark in May 2012 and they, along with their sons Dánial and Andrias, took up residence in Nuuk on August 8.

Please pray for God’s blessing upon the Army’s ministry in Greenland.
