Reflecting on World AIDS Day

This afternoon I passed a road-side Fruit Stand in my community and remembered the booming road side business I saw in Zimbabwe, Africa a few years ago: coffins/caskets. Praying today for a country where the life expectancy is 42 and 25% of the population is made up of orphans, due in large part to the World AIDS crisis. Glad to see the numbers going the other way, but remembering names and faces of friends, brother and sisters that are VERY close to this crisis. A few personal pics:

Widows gathered for prayer at Mbare Christian Fellowship in Harrare.

 

Kids at a Zim Orphanage receiving gifts from our community.

See my pasts post about work and partners in Zimbabwe.
