Not Just Another Day

Today is World AIDS Day, and as we prepare to leave for South Africa on the 15th (happy birthday to me!), the issue of HIV/AIDS has become increasingly important to us. The nation of South Africa has the highest rate of HIV/AIDS in the world, with over 6,600,000 currently infected and 1,400,000 children orphaned by the disease. Worldwide, there are over 36,000,000 people infected, with a new infection occurring every every 12 seconds.

Please support the fight against HIV/AIDS and its ravaging impact on the world by spreading the word and learning how you can get involved.

For more information, check out the AIDS Clock or World AIDS Day Website

You can also join us in committing to pray for the nation of South Africa, those who have been effected by HIV/AIDS and the time we will spend there.

Thanks for your support!
