The Salvation Army Now at Work in 120 Countries

Monday, March 15, 2010

Salvation Army General Shaw Clifton has announced the official opening of The Salvation Army’s work in Nicaragua, making it the 120th country in which the Army is officially at work.

Previous attempts to establish a presence in Nicaragua were short lived due to civil conflict within the nation. In 2005, however, with the regime being more open to the presence of Christian organizations within the country, The Salvation Army’s Latin America North Territory began exploring the possibility of setting up operations.

Meetings were held with the government at the beginning of 2008, with a view to establishing the Army’s legal presence in Nicaragua. Several months were spent working through the various legal requirements in connection with The Salvation Army’s registration in the country.

Majors Enrique and Ana Molina, Costa Rican Salvation Army officers, have been appointed to lead the new work. Until their residency application is complete, Major Max Mayorga, Territorial Social Secretary in the Latin America North Territory – and Nicaraguan by birth – has power of attorney to act for Majors Molina and on behalf of The Salvation Army.

The Salvation Army is in good standing with the Nicaraguan authorities, and we look forward to working with them and the local communities!
