Salvation Army Captain Jennifer Cortez doesn’t have a building but she has a flock of 800 souls she’s served through The Salvation Army’s Mobile Ministry. Her schedule is packed and she works hard but says that the ministry’s following is not because of anything she’s done.

“It’s not because I am good, it’s because Jesus is doing His work through the Holy Spirit. People notice that,” said Captain Cortez.
