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!
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.
