Dear Friends,

                            “Take care of Gods needy people…Romans 12:13


As I read again Paul’s letter to the Christian church in Rome, I was reminded once more howmuch of an outward focus the apostle maintained throughout his life and ministry. His lettersshine with his care and consideration of colleagues in ministry, and believers that would fitunder the whole range of the demographics of the timethe young, the old, men, women, richand poor. He was convinced that the gospel message is one rooted in the good news of God’slove and that the blessings we receive from God are not ours to horde but rather ours to share.Some might even suggest that it is a vital mission strategycertainly it would seem that Paulwas convinced!

Paul’s words to ‘take care of God’s needy people’are echoed through the Old and NewTestaments. We are reminded to respond not out of a wearied sense of duty, but turning our actof giving into one of praise to our God – a God none of us can ever out give!

Within The SalvationArmy one of the ways in which we can bring blessing to communitiesdistant from Canada is through the Partners in Mission campaign. In many territories thiscampaign is referred to as Self-Denial and it is an opportunity for all Salvationists world-wideto contribute to the needs of the international SalvationArmy. I have been blessed to witnessSalvationists in the poorest of communities give their best from meagre resources. You and I,living in this land of plenty are invited to give generously, joining with our brothers and sistersaround the world as ‘OneArmy’ in sharing the blessings of God.

The goal of the 2014 Partners in Mission campaign is $2.25 million.Aresource package hasalready been mailed to every ministry unit, this year introducing Liberia and Sierra Leone, oneof our partner territories. I would encourage you to take time to review the material and planyour local campaign.

Thank you for generously supporting the 2014 Partners in Mission campaign.

Sincerely yours,

Commissioner Brian Peddle
