Providing Relief in Alabama

Tuesday, January 24, 2012

The Salvation Army is providing aid to devastated areas of Alabama following the severe weather and tornadoes that struck the area early Monday. The storm’s tear through the southern state resulted in numerous power outages, 100 injured residents and two fatalities.

In response to this disaster, Alabama, Louisiana, and Mississippi divisions of The Salvation Army have deployed five mobile kitchen units to the damaged communities of Maplesville, Centerpoint and Birmingham.

Check out this touching video about Rayna’s experience with The Salvation Army in Canton, Massachusetts.

Because of the women’s services offered there, Rayna has recovered from a drug addiction and continues to receive financial aid, spiritual counseling, love and guidance. Now, she and her daughter, Raven are safe from danger and moving on with their lives in good health and peace of mind. Enjoy!

Solid Faith & Service

Friday, January 20, 2012

It’s unlikely that you’ve ever heard of the Solid Rock Club of Alexandria, VA. The intimate club of 25 men in recovery at The Salvation Army’s Adult Rehabilitation Center (ARC) is no secret, but the humble work they’ve accomplished over the years serving others seems to be in hiding!

I discovered the group’s existence after stumbling upon an article featuring their good work on The Salvation Army’s Southern Spirit Online site (thanks Southern Territory!).


A New Life

Thursday, January 19, 2012

Suffering throughout the world is a sad reality. Outside of the light of Christ, it’s easy to understand why some people attempt to squander feelings of depression and hopelessness by fueling their addictions.

Every day and by your help, employees of The Salvation Army Adult Rehabilitation Centers experience the joy of witnessing the transformation of these individuals. From darkness to light; dependency to sobriety, those who once had nothing now have everything because they have discovered faith and hope through their new life in Christ.
