This time was especially nice for me as there were a few familiar faces that go back to the first time we were together in 2006 in Igat Puri -- amazing.
When you get some time under your belt living with HIV/AIDS and you are blessed with health -- you begin to have different things to talk about. I had shared how I hit the wall with taking all of my meds -- I take 9 pills a day - -some really big ones. I am so grateful that God has used these drugs to keep me alive. But it can get old -- I shared that with the group - to encourage them that it might happen.
Later on in the time of sharing a young woman got up to share -- and Andi Eicher was translating from the local language to English for me. While she was sharing her story -- everyone started to laugh -- and I said to Andi what is up -- he said, hang on. She went on to say how she was saying she was getting sick from the meds and did not want to take them and thought to herself - -how I can I take this medicine everyday for the rest of my life and thought after hearing me share she almost did not want to talk because she has to take only 1 pill each day. We all laughed and she said -- she will no longer complain!
I shared with them how my walk with Jesus has made me a stronger person and encouraged them to support those around them and to consider how they might be of service in the kingdom of God!
