The new General gave thanks for the warmth of the welcome before making clear the purpose of IHQ: "A headquarters only exists to resource the frontline mission," he said.
Commissioner William Cochrane (International Secretary to the Chief of the Staff) offered a prayer of thanks, welcome and dedication before the General and Commissioner Cox shook hands with every member of the IHQ family then headed to their new offices to get on with the work of leading and prayerfully directing the international Salvation Army.
