An Unexpected Salvo in Tasmania

Tina Waldrom speaks with Kim Haworth who is an Unexpected Salvo in Tasmania. Kim is living the most unexpected life as a Divisional Commander, a State Leader with the Salvation Army. She never thought God was knowable. She never thought she would end up, as a captain in the Salvation Army. She is encouraging new initiatives to reach people for Christ. Alongside existing models of outreach, new organic faith expressions are springing up. The OFE network is a part of Kim’s focus to see revival in Tasmania.

After Kim’s initial encounter with Christ, she sensed a call from God to be involved in church work. It took some time for the Lord to convince her. It took some time for Kim to give her all to this. Her story is down to earth and very warm. It shows the extraordinary things the Lord can do, through someone who says ‘yes’ to the His promptings. It demonstrates the power of a surrendered life in the hands of a God who is on mission to reach the world.

In this episode, Kim talks about the challenges of handling the unexpected promptings of the Lord. From her experience, she concluded that it’s better to give up and just say yes to Jesus. The joy of following Him on the unexpected journey of faith and outreach, far outweighs the challenges. Kim gives some wonderful spiritual advise and talks about the importance of new methods of outreach in Australia.
