Perhaps the one most recognized indicator of missional effectiveness in a Salvation Army corps is what happens on Sunday.

This afternoon I was on the phone with Major Charles Smith, Divisional Commander for the Kansas and Western Missouri Division.  Who mentioned that two corps in metropolitan KC experienced robust Easter Sunday attendances. 

252 attended Sunday worship at the corps in Independence MO; 26 seekers knelt for prayer.

Over 150 attended at the Kansas City KS Corps after an intensive door-to-door visitation in the neighborhood by officers and soldiers.  The corps was happy to see 24 kneeling for prayer.

God bless our corps in Independence and Kansas City.  Now, what happens next with these 400+ visitors, with these 50 seekers, will determine how effective we really are.  Keep them in your prayers.
