Readers of this blog know of my experiences in traveling to Malawi, Africa. It was a life-changing experience for me and my son, as well as the beginning of a larger partnership with Y-Malawi and World Vision for our church. We have now sent three teams and committed over $100,000 seed money and have over 350 children being sponsored in Nkhoma, Malawi.
But even many those of us with great passion for the plight of our brothers and sisters will find it hard to travel to Africa. So, between today and Wednesday, July 18, our church is hosting the Aids Experience from World Vision. The local paper ran a front page story and people from the community our joining other churches and our own church Community going through the exhibit. It takes about 20 minutes and it immerses you in the life of one person: a young woman, a child, a boy, and then tells you of both the heartache of a continent and the hope of Christ that is being offered.
If you are anywhere near San Clemente in the next few days, please just drop in. It is not the same as traveling to Africa and meeting the people, but it may almost touch your heart as much.
