Global Summit on AIDS & The Church
I just returned from Saddleback's Global Summit on AIDS and The Church hosted by Pastor Rick and Kay Warren. I shared my testimony on the opening evening (Wednesday, Nov. 28) right after John Ortberg and before Lynn Hybels. Pastor Rick Warren later asked me to stay and share in all six of his weekend services where it is estimated that 17,000 people attend. I shared my testimony along with another person who is living with AIDS. Then after the service, Pastor Rick spontaneously urged people to be baptized in response to the service and 150 people were baptized! Praise the Lord!
Also on Thursday afternoon, Senator Hillary Clinton explained her plan to address the issue of HIV/AIDS. Five other presidential candidates were not present but spoke to us via a video: Gov. Mike Huckabee, Sen. John Edwards, Sen. John McCain, Sen. Barack Obama, and Gov. Mitt Romney. You may hear the audio or view the video at this website.
