BELL COUNTY, TX — The Salvation Army of Bell County will have pop-up prayer at Walmart on West Adams, 6801 West Adams Ave. Temple, TX 76502. This will happen on Friday, May 1 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

“This is our third week to host mobile prayer and it has been a blessing to watch as those whom we pray for walk or drive away feeling encouraged and uplifted. I still remember the names of those that I prayed for last week and I know that God is with them,” said Lt. Chantel Millin.

Over the last several weeks, the Salvation Army has been providing individualized support for those needing emotional and spiritual care during the pandemic and is available 7 days a week, 8 a.m. to 12 a.m. (CST), by calling 844-458-4673.

A team of ESC specialists, made up of Salvation Army Officers and trained employees, are available to help callers.

The specific goal of the hotline is to offer assistance to people overcome with worry or undue stress caused by the pandemic.

Callers will find people ready to listen to their concerns and pray with them. Having pop-up prayer allows The Salvation Army Bell County to bring this national initiative to a local level.

“In addition to praying for those who come by tomorrow, we will take this opportunity, on Friday, to pray for the many workers in the retail industry, distribution centers, manufacturers, and truck drivers that have been working tirelessly to keep the stores stocked with whatever essentials are available” said Lt. Chantel Millin.
