Help share Hope around the world through the Self Denial Appeal
20 March 2015
The Salvation Army’s Self Denial Appeal is a special opportunity for the officers, soldiers, employees and friends of The Salvation Army to bring hope to some of the world’s poorest people.
The Salvation Army is active in more than 126 countries around the world, providing a diverse range of practical, spiritual, and community development programs.
Our work in many of these countries is dependent on the Self Denial Appeal for support. It is the extraordinary generosity of people from countries like Australia that allows our colleagues overseas to bring hope into some of the world’s most desperate circumstances.
To learn more about the work of The Salvation Army around the world, you can watch our Self Denial video series online at http://www.selfdenial.info. The series this year features real life stories from Rwanda, Cambodia, Pakistan and Papua New Guinea. You will be challenged and inspired as you watch the faithful work that happens overseas.
To members of our faith community. For many of you, the Self Denial Appeal Altar Service will be held this Sunday. Please prayerfully consider the great need in developing countries and the amazing blessing you can be to so many with your gift of love to communities you will probably never visit. As you prepare your financial gift through the Self denial Appeal take time to consider the blessings that you have received and prepare yourself to be a blessing to others.
If you are not able to give during an Altar Service, you can give online at http://www.selfdenial.info. You can also choose to become a monthly partner and support our international work consistently throughout the year. There is an opportunity to join our monthly partner team on the alter service envelopes. Please take advantage of this opportunity.
In faith and with gratitude I thank you for making this year the most significant Self Denial Appeal this territory has ever seen. Thank you in advance for your faithful and generous support of the Self Denial Appeal.
James Condon (Commissioner)
