And This, Too, Shall Pass
We have never been this way before! We are living in unprecedented, peculiar times – times of uncertainty and untold anxieties. These are times when The Salvation Army is responding by providing critical and essential services.
We are seeing a dynamic increase in the number of families seeking services which go beyond just food but spiritual and emotional support. We have been able to rise to the challenge by continuing to serve those who come to us for assistance. As you know, we serve everyone – from the cradle to the grave, without discrimination. People count on us to continue to serve suffering humanity.
I write to express my sincere and deepest gratitude to you for your unmatched dedication to the work of The Salvation Army and to the work of the Lord. Thank you. We keep receiving messages of gratitude from various community stakeholders. Your tireless work does not go unnoticed. Your Father in heaven sees and is pleased. Thank you. We miss and pray for some on our team who are on furlough for the foreseeable future. We hope to all be reunited sooner than later.
We do not know how long this pandemic will last. We do not know the long-term effects of this pandemic. Things might hurt a lot more before they get better. I know we will make it.
I wish there was a way of knowing how to feel in times such as these. I worry for my wife and two daughters. I worry for my extended family near and far. I worry for you and your families, and our corps family. I pray for yours and your families’ safety and protection during these tough times.
Please stay safe, and know we love and miss you. We will make it through together.
God bless you.
