Beat The Drum

World AIDS Day was last Friday. The problem is HUGE.

AIDS has already orphaned more than 12 million African children. In sub-Saharan Africa 30 million people have died from the HIV/AIDS virus since 1981. Approximately 28 million people are currently HIV/AIDS positive.

God is raising up many who will stand up and be counted to bring hope, comfort and healing in the midst of the pain.

Among the CoHo family, several have gone to Africa to help in orphanages this past year, and several more are slated to go in the New Year.

What would the Father have you do?

Beat The Drum

Jeremiah 22:16
The life of King Josiah: "He defended the cause of the poor and needy, and so all went well." And then this profound postscript: "Is that not what it means to know me?"

I will never cure or stop aids but if I can give one person hope while over there it is all worth while.

Well put Simon. That reminds me of a Mother Theresa quote, "In this life we cannot do great things. We can only do small things with great love." Keep spreading the love...Stew
