Commander of Salvation Army to leave St. Vincent

They obediently answered the call to come and serve the people of St Vincent and the Grenadines, but after four years, the time has come for Majors Henry and Pauline King to serve somewhere else.{{more}}

They will leave St Vincent for their new assignment in Belize on July 14, where they will encounter new experiences and greet new faces; but the old acquaintances will never be forgotten.

“Our time spent here, we thank God,” Major Henry said.

And during his address at the traditional Salvation Army Advisory Board’s Appreciation Dinner last Friday, June 25, King said that the time spent here had been a learning experience for him and his family.

“Our experiences here have been varied – whether it was the persons walking in to the office to offer continued support and some financial assistance or the mental patient, who has just been released, who, too, will walk in,” he continued.

King did not elaborate further on his experiences during his stint here, but noted that it was his intention to treasure the interactions and take nothing for granted.

“Mrs King and I will never forget St Vincent,” he said.

Major Pierre and Persia Antoine are expected to carry on the important work of the Salvation Army of tending to the poor and needy.
