Recipe #2

“Let us not become weary in doing good for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.”
Galatians 6:9 (NIV)






2 parts Perseverance

3 parts Commitment

4 parts Strength

5 parts Discipline

Measureless Amounts of Jesus


The Dictionary defines “vision” as “the act or power of anticipating that which will or may come to be.”  In 1865, The Salvation Army was birthed from that which was merely a vision in the mind of its founder William Booth.  He had a vision of a mission, founded on Christ that would meet the needs of those suffering all over the world and through physical and spiritual food, could be restored to the place where God has called them to be.  Booth  knew that with perseverance, commitment, strength and discipline this could come to pass and lives would be freed from that which had been holding them down.  First and foremost with the necessary ingredient of Jesus, one could make a difference in this world, one soul at a time.  It would not be an easy recipe, there would be challenges, lumps in the batter so to say, but with determination, “the rough places would be made smooth” and people would be changed forever!

These pots and pans hang in our Transitional Housing kitchen here at Area Command. Each one is used every day as meals are lovingly prepared for those who reside within these walls. Adults and children who would otherwise be hopeless find hope here and as we prepare meals for them to nourish their bodies, we also offer prayer, encouragement, resources and love to nourish their mind and soul. For more info on this program or on how you can support the mission, please contact Jen at 416-4218

The end result of this endeavor is to change not only the person assisted but instill life change within the person assisting.

Serves anyone who is lost, uncertain and seeking.
