10,000 attend Salvationist meetings in India


Salvation Army Chief of the Staff Robin Dunster has toured the Army’s India Northern territory to encourage the troops. Over 10,000 have attended events led by Commissioner Dunster, including a rally of more than 3,000 young people in Amritsar. The Indian Salvationists were excited to see the Chief, and wherever she went she and her support officer, Lieut-Colonel Edna Williams, were given gifts like garlands, flowers and shawls. In two cities, thousands of Salvationists took part in grand marches of witness, backed by Punjabi bagpipes and drums. Another event was attended by India’s Agriculture Minister, who told the Salvationists he supported them in their service of the Indian people.

You can never go wrong with any contribution to The Salvation Army. They barely receive the recognition they deserve for their good works but they are so busy doing good works they don't have time to worry about it. Their organization probably puts the greatest percentage of their contributions to work than any other non-profit organization.
