Bringing gospel hope to South Africa’s AIDS crisis
6 million people in South Africa live with HIV/AIDS, one in eight of the population.
This is the highest incidence of HIV/AIDS anywhere in the world, and by a wide margin.
Among those who suffer are children, who frequently catch HIV from their mother during
childbirth. Much can be done for them, but the antiretroviral drugs often have side
effects that slow their development.
The Morning Star Children’s Centre in Welkom is a Christian centre that seeks to
bring Christian compassion and gospel hope to children living with HIV/AIDS.
In July/August 2015, GBM will be running an Envision Team to South Africa for four
weeks, to work alongside the staff at Morning Star. The team will be involved in
Serving alongside the staff in working with the children
Visiting the homes of the children in the townships
Doing some decorating and maintenance work around the Morning Star facilities.
Working with teenage groups, sharing the gospel and doing Bible studies
If you are aged eighteen or over, and want to serve God in this needy country and
make a gospel impact, then this is for you.
