OTHERS. This was the entire contents of a Christmas message sent by telegram in the very early 1900s by our founder, General William Booth. The cost to send a telegram wasn't easy for Booth to afford so his message of encouragement to his officers around the world had to be short. An entire message had to be condensed to a single word. This word had to encourage, inspire and give direction. Not an easy task for a lonely word. Yet the task was accomplished.
OTHERS became the focus. OTHERS became the reason.
OTHERS became the purpose.
