Just when you thought the warm Summer weather was over, think again! Our team was happy to come down to sunny Orlando, Florida to bring the Experience to Northland Church!

Besides hosting the Experience, Northland committed to building and sending 850 Caregiver Kits to Africa. These are kits that contain basic medical supplies for World Vision’s 80,000 caregivers that bring help to those who have HIV or AIDS. Many people from the community were able to participate in building one of these kits.

We also had multiple opportunities to engage the greater Orlando area through speaking engagements, media interviews and offering sponsorship at the Sunday services.

One family had come to volunteer and has lost a daughter to AIDS. They were able to share their story to many people and when asked why they came to serve, the response was simple; “People need to know.”

It’s true. People need to know how AIDS affects our world. Our country. Our city. Our town. Our block. Our family.

Thank you Northland for hosting the Experience this week. And thank you to all the churches and conferences that hosted the Experience this year. Thank you for all the people who supported World Vision’s work in the field, and being the hands and feet to our brothers and sisters around the world who suffer from AIDS.

We on the tourstaff are taking a holiday break now. We are all very grateful to everyone who provided us hospitality, laughter and encouragement.  Keep checking here to see if the Experience is coming to a town near you!

God Bless~
