And there you have it…the announcement has finally been made:

As the General takes His official office he could possibly pick his Chief of the Staff from one of these candidates if he so chooses.

The world has anxiously awaited this announcement and I am sure that there will be much thought given to our new General’s mission and vision for The Salvation Army in our world and he will provide us the leadership that we have been praying for.  This new General comes at the heals of an abrupt departure of General Linda Bond, who subsequently took early retirement for ‘personal reasons’.  Though this event took the Army by surprise, our World Leaders rallied and convened rather quickly to the High Council in order to stem off any additional vacancies or additional issues.  It is unfortunate that the High Councils had to convene a year early, but as many have said, the Lord has provided and we will continue to trust in God’s guidance for the future!  

On behalf of the Soldiery around the world we wish to congratulate General Andre’ Cox, and we will be praying for his leadership and for the wisdom of the Holy Spirit to continue to use this Army for the Lord!
