AIDs in Africa

This disease is decimating that continent.  When I was in Cameroon in 2006 I was able to see first hand some of the devastation that is taking place.  One thing that stands out in my mind was going to a tailor shop to have some clothes made for my family.  There were several young ladies working there as apprentices.  All of them were orphans as a result of AIDs.  All of them were just trying to survive.

With that thought in mind here is a video that helps open your eyes to the situation there.  It is set in Kenya.  It is graphic and you need to understand that before pressing play.  The gospel must be brought there and it must come with a cup of cold water and a caring hand.  Or perhaps it is an open home that seeks adoption that they might live.
