    199: Tell the world from 2024 Testify Congress with General Lyndon Buckingham

    199: Tell the world from 2024 Testify Congress with General Lyndon Buckingham

    We’re back with our final highlight episode from the 2024 Testify Congress.
    Yes, last month, in Pasadena, California, The Salvation Army from around the Western Territory joined for an event focused on teaching, training and motivating Salvationists to tell the story of Jesus more often and to more people.
    And The Salvation Army’s international leaders, General Lyndon Buckingham and Commissioner Bronwyn Buckingham, traveled from London to be part of it all.
    You've heard the General speak from this event a couple times now—in Episode 193 and 197.
    Today, we bring you his final appearance of the Congress before some 3,000 attendees at the Pasadena Convention Center Civic Auditorium. This is his public charge to the new lieutenants.
    Over the weekend, the Defenders of Justice Session of cadets were commissioned as Salvation Army officers, or pastors, and in this meeting were given their very first ministry assignment. In fact, they don't find out the location until they are standing on stage!
    And this is the battle cry, if you will, for each one of them from The Salvation Army's international leader.
    Listen in and be encouraged in your eagerness to serve, too.

    198 Testify: Monte Mansfield and Sthefania Milhilli at 2024 Testify Congress

    We’re back with more highlights from the 2024 Testify Congress.
    Last month, in Pasadena, California, The Salvation Army from around the Western Territory joined for an event focused on teaching, training and motivating Salvationists to tell the story of Jesus more often and to more people. 
    And the sessions featured, you guessed it, testimonies from programs and ministries of The Salvation Army across the West. 
    Today, we’re sharing two:
    First, you'll hear from Monte Mansfield, a one-time professional athlete whose life was forever altered by substance abuse. Eventually, he found The Salvation Army through the Adult Rehabilitation Center program.
    Then, Sthephania Mihilii, who moved to the U.S. from Mexico in second grade when her single mom married. She rebelled in her teenage years and then became a lifeguard at a Salvation Army Kroc Center.
    So allow me to introduce to you today, Monte Mansfield and Sthephania Mihilii—who each took to the stage live after the screening of their video testimony.
