Sept. 3rd UPPADA PROGRAM
After a journey down towards the coast (very beautiful) and into a village setting we came upon a group that were waiting in an unfinished building. This was a group where at first most of the people were staying away because they heard it was an HIV/AIDS meeting and they didn't want to be near us or be associated with us. But after I had a chance to sing some more people in the village started to come. We started and there was about 8 people and by the end there were about 30 people. This was a big step for them. I applaud their courage and also the work of the local pastor who set things up.
