Global Missions Team project members double in 2001



This month remodeling and expanding of the officers’ quarters and construction of a new corps building will begin on the island of St. Maarten. The number of team members has doubled since the last global missions project in Haiti. As the Central Territory's third global missions team project, this opportunity is better known than its predecessors and is seen by many as a way their skills can be used to build God's Kingdom.

Major Gloria Stepke, director of the overseas personnel and sponsorship bureau, also attributes this growth to the time of year the teams will be serving. Since the teams will be ministering during construction’s slow season many more participants who are trained and skilled in construction can participate.

This ministry appeals to people from all walks of life. Many soldiers and officers have invited non-Salvationist friends, advisory board members and family members. It not only allows Salvationists a chance to experience the international Army but offers the non-Salvationist members a glimpse of what the Army is doing worldwide and hopefully will encourage them to become more active in mission at home.
