LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — The Lafayette Salvation Army is welcoming two new Lieutenants to the community this month. Aaron Johnson and Rachel Johnson are the new pastors and administrations.

Lieutenant Aaron found out about the Salvation Army by going through the adult rehabilitation center. He completed the program and started working with the Salvation Army ministry a few years later.

Lieutenant Rachel says she knew from a young age she wanted to be a Salvation Army officer. She says so far, they've learned how obesity, infant mortality, the drug crisis, and tobacco plague the community.

They would like to reach out to more children to help fight this.

"If we show them that they are not only loved not only by us but by Jesus Christ who made them with a passion and purpose for their life, if we can get that knowledge to them as soon as possible then I believe in the name of Jesus that all those issues won't even be a possibility," said Rachel Johnson

As the Johnsons learn more about the community, they will start to set more goals for themselves and the Salvation Army.
