Partners in Mission 2015 Website Banner

When we look at our world, we need to see the faces behind the news reports and statistics. God actively cares about all of his creation, but he chooses to work through his people who have been charged to carry out his mission of hope, healing and transformation. We are God’s hands to comfort a hurting world.

Salvation Army congregations have an important role in supporting Partners in Mission. This fundraising campaign provides the necessary money to carry out the ministry of The Salvation Army worldwide. These funds ensure that the Army continues to be a beacon of hope in countries devastated by poverty, illness and natural disasters – countries where much of the population lives on less than $2 a day.

All Salvation Army territories and commands, whether financially independent or grant aided, contribute to the International Self-Denial Appeal (which we term Partners in Mission). This serves as an example of what it means to be partners in mission and ministry – standing shoulder to shoulder, hand in hand.

The Canada and Bermuda Territory is partnered with: Germany and Lithuania; Latin America North; Liberia; Malawi; and Zimbabwe. While our territory responds to needs in many other countries, we have a special responsibility to support these five territories/commands financially and prayerfully.

The money raised during the Partners in Mission Appeal provides the essential funding needed for the ongoing ministry of the Army in each of these countries. This funding is necessary to keep the infrastructure in place so that communities can focus on specific needs and concerns, such as education, health, clean water, income generation or human-trafficking issues.

The mission of The Salvation Army worldwide can continue only with your prayerful and practical support

 

The support between partner territories goes both ways. While our mission partners may not be in a position to provide funding for our programs, they can teach us new and creative approaches to the common issues and problems we face. And we have their support in prayer, something of greater value than money.

In countries where life is so tenuous, prayer is not a last but a first resort. They have experienced God’s faithfulness as they have learned to depend on him in the midst of desperate poverty and persecution. As they pray for us, let us be faithful in upholding them in our prayers.

We have developed Partners in Mission resources to help promote this important fundraising campaign. Focus for 2015 is our African partners; Liberia, Malawi and Zimbabwe. Other resources include videos, photos, printable materials, children & teen resources & more!

In 2014, Salvationists across the Canada and Bermuda Territory responded with heartfelt generosity to the suffering of others. Thank you for your kindness and practical expression of Christian love that enabled us to be Christ’s presence to those in need. The mission of The Salvation Army world-wide can continue only with your prayerful and practical support. It is a mission that continues to grow as The Salvation Army is welcomed into additional countries. We thank the Lord for these new opportunities, understanding the need to ensure that the finances are available to nurture these young churches.

Please give generously so that the territorial goal of $2.25 million will be reached.
