Salvation Army is Like a Small World
04 July 2015
Maureen Fernando is a soldier of The Salvation Army at Colombo Central Corps, Sri Lanka Territory. Mother to a boy and girl, Maureen was recently widowed when her husband died in April of this year, but she loves God and the Army. Since the death of her husband, The Salvation Army has helped take care of her daily needs and, in many ways, Maureen’s life depends upon the Army.
When asked about her experiences at Boundless, she said: ‘I am so delighted to be part of the congress and I count it a joy to be chosen from among many to be a delegate. I feel loved and blessed by God, especially as this is the first congress I have attended.’
Maureen says the experience she has gained from this visit to London will help her to talk to her fellow soldiers when she returns home. Having now experienced how vast the Army is she says, ‘The Salvation Army is like a small world’.
Maureen is very excited to experience how the many cultures present at congress have come together in worship. In particular the women’s ministries meeting – ‘Bound-Less’ – was a highlight as she participated in joyful worship.
Her prayer for The Salvation Army is that God will bless it internationally, and that his love will continue to prevail in our church. She prays for all Salvationists and, above all, she says ‘I am boundless for God’.
