Praise and Prayer

Pray: Apparently, many residents in AIDS-battered Kenya believe that HIV/AIDS does not really exist, and that a curse is actually responsible for people's deaths. It is that mindset that Medical Ambassadors International (MAI) is determined to change. MAI's Darla Calhoun runs a program for street children, often the youngest victims of the crisis. "We're just hoping that maybe, as these boys grow up, they'll help change the course of things by being leaders, both spiritually and maybe even professionally," she commented. "I just learned that Kenya has the world's highest number of AIDS orphans," she added. "As Christians we need to pray for these children and that more workers will come and recognize this as one of the priority compassionate needs in ministry today."
