Never in its history has The Salvation Army been more split between greatness and failure, advance and retreat, zeal and coldness. There are places in the world where the forward march is a full gallop. In other places the withdrawal is just as pronounced.

Moving around has been the lot of Salvation Army officers since the very first days of the movement. While it can be exciting, it can also be distressing and wearisome.
