 A Call to Faith Organizations!

President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) in the United States is “calling on communities of faith—which are a healing presence in areas affected by gender-based violence—to once again stand with us, and support the campaign to protect girls and women from sexual assault.”  The latest issue of Foreign Service Journal includes an article written by Ambassador Deborah Brix, U.S. Global AIDS Coordinator, titled “PEPFAR: Making the Impossible Possible”.  Well worth the reading!

  1. Get to know that the servants of God will walk with Him in faith, He will give power to their message. They will enabled so to present His love and the danger of rejecting the grace of God that men will be constrained to accept the gospel, Christ will perform wonderful miracles if men will but do their God- given part. I thank you all for the work that is a head of us and your organization as a whole, i hope that as time comes it will give you an image to share with everybody may God bless you.
