Experience AIDS

In American we live pretty insulated lives. We have nice warm homes, full stomaches, cars, computers. Most people in the world don’t have these things. I’ve always lived with the idea that little me can’t make a difference. Few things in life break down the insulation between us and the others of this world. Few things show you the difference you can make. What is happening at Sunset this weekend is something so creative that I can’t wait.

We are hosting a World Vision Experience:AIDS interactive exhibit. Rose is really excited to go through it and also help out. I am excited to go because it is out of my comfort zone. A lot of my life is around comfort, but I am trying to recognize how healthy it is to be out of my comfort zone. I know God is going to use this event for great things.

I’ve been told that you begin the journey at the exhibit as one of four kids in AIDS infected areas of Africa. You walk in their shoes through life and by the end of the 30 minutes exhibit you find out if you have AIDS or not as that kid.

Powerful…I hope that God uses this for more than it being something cool, but that it advances kingdom living here in this life for the thousands of people who are coming.

You can read all about it here.

And if you live close to Portland, you can sign up to be able to attend at a time that works for you here.

If you don’t make a difference, who will?
