I had the privilege of meeting the Project Director for the state of Andhra Pradesh for the State AIDS Control Society aka APSACS. I asked him if he would consider doing a joint awareness program with the Christian Community and he agreed. I was so grateful that he took the time to meet with me and also thankful to Dr. Joseph Samuel for setting up the meeting. Trevain introduced me to the Bishop of the Methodist Church and also I had a chance to meet with Pastor David Golopolas from Hyderabad Baptist Church and a couple other Pastors who head up Pastors Associations. All of them were favorable to this HIV/AIDS Conference that we are setting for February of 2009.
We will be hosting it at a hotel in Hyderabad and look forward to bring both awareness and also the mandate that God would like us to move into this area of ministry with love and compassion! I am thankful to Rick & Kay Warren for hosting the Global Summit in the USA and providing an example of how the Government and the Faith-Based Communities can work together -- I believe the Lord planted that seed in order for this to come together! Thanks Rick & Kay!
