Curtiss and Sandy Hartley have been Salvation Army officers for nearly 30 years, having served in Missouri, Illinois and Wisconsin in corps appointments, and in Virginia at National Headquarters, in Michigan at Divisional Headquarters in Detroit, and now at THQ in Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea.
We have a son, Justin, married to Stephanie. They had their first child in August. His name is Landon Elijah, and he’s adorable! Justin and Stephanie are serving as ministry interns at The Salvation Army in Rockford, Illinois, and plan to enter the College for Officer Training in the fall of 2013.
Our daughter Megan is in her first year of training as a cadet at The Salvation Army’s College for Officer Training in Chicago. She spent the past two years serving as a ministry intern at the Marinette, Wisconsin corps.
We love that God has called us into ministry to serve Him, and are very excited (and scared) about this new adventure, moving to Papua New Guinea to serve at the Territorial Headquarters. We are far from home and family, but right where God has placed us, to use us for His purposes. And we’re grateful!
