Commissioner Susan McMillan, territorial commander, introduced the Hills to the capacity crowd and the many people watching the proceedings via livestream. In her prayer of dedication, she thanked God that he is still calling men and women to serve him. “As we receive these new leaders in this territory,” she prayed, “we ask that you will be with them in everything they do. Thank you for their willingness to serve anywhere, and that that willingness has brought them here.”
Salvationist Jory Hewson of Oshawa Temple offered words of welcome to the Hills on behalf of the territory. In her response, Colonel Shelley Hill expressed their appreciation for the warm welcome they have received since arriving from Singapore, where they had served as the chief secretary and territorial secretary for women’s ministries in the Singapore, Malaysia and Myanmar Territory. She then read from the Book of Joshua before Colonel Edward Hill shared from God’s Word.
“Let’s choose faith over fear,” he challenged, encouraging those gathered to remember God’s provision for them in the past, to keep their focus on God’s presence with them now and to follow his instructions as they continue to walk in relationship with him. The chief secretary then led a time of reflection and rededication as he invited the congregation to sing, “In thee, oh Lord, do I put my trust.”
Lending support to the service were members of the Cabinet, representative divisional leaders and the musical sections of Oshawa Temple, including the band, songsters and worship team.
