Self Denial: Love Changes Lives
Date: 9th April 2017 - 17th April 2017
The founder of the the Salvation Army, William Booth, always understood that God's love was to be offered to others so that people in real despair could experience real hope. And real hope is released through love-filled, practical action. In 1886, Booth called Salvationists to give sacrificially, to deny themselves so that they could offer God's love to a hurting world. So as Salvationists we give generously to the Self Denial Appeal, knowing that our sacrificial giving changes the world because love changes lives.
Before we ask others to give in our Red Shield Appeal, we give first. On Sunday April 9, Salvationists are challenged to give One Week's Salary on Missionary Service (OWSMS). We do this because we know that love changes lives...
We're inviting you to see how love is changing lives around the world through The Salvation Army's Self Denial Appeal: http://selfdenial.info/au/
