May25FriInternational leaders encourage Trinity Bay South Corps to go forward in faith. May 25, 2018
“Are you all in?” That was the question posed by Commissioner Brian Peddle, Chief of the Staff, to Salvationists in Dildo, N.L., as Trinity Bay South Corps celebrated its 125th anniversary in April. Commissioners Brian and Rosalie Peddle, World Secretary for Women’s Ministries, led the weekend of events under the theme, Great is Thy Faithfulness.

The weekend began with dual men’s and women’s breakfasts, attended by more than 100 people combined. At the men’s event, Commissioner Brian Peddle reminded the group that “God is faithful. There is a future and there’s lots of hope. God wants men who are willing to work for him.” Commissioner Rosalie Peddle exhorted those attending the women’s breakfast to be women of influence. “It’s time to make a difference in our world,” she said.
The morning events were followed by an afternoon rally, where Commissioner Brian Peddle encouraged Salvationists to live a life different from the world so people will see Jesus in them. “We need to be bright lights to bring people to a safe harbour,” he said. At the celebratory dinner later that day, the commissioner reflected on how his Army life began in Dildo, and reminded guests that God has a plan for everyone.
During the morning and evening services on Sunday, both commissioners encouraged the corps to go forward in faith. “Where do we go from here?” challenged Commissioner Rosalie Peddle at the morning meeting. “What is God asking of us? We need to step up and move out.”
At the evening meeting, Commissioner Brian Peddle ended the weekend with a positive message for Salvationists in Dildo. “God is going to do great things,” he said. “Come to him. Watch what God can do.”
