The World Vision Experience: AIDS tour came back to California this January and was hosted by The First Baptist Church in Elk Grove.  During the week, many people walked through the Experience, including one gal who is HIV positive.  After going through one of the stories, she came out very moved and asked to speak with one of the church staff.  She shared her story of how she’s been HIV positive for 14 years but had told no one except her husband. Seeing the stories of children with HIV in Africa who share similar experiences like she does, was very touching and she expressed how it (personally) made her feel more at peace.

It was encouraging to see visitors touched in this way and we were honored to serve alongside this church that has been involved with their local AIDS organizations in the Sacramento Valley.

We are thankful for all the volunteers and visitors that came through this week in Northern California. Next Stop: White Bear Lake, MN ~ get your coat!
