A New Year

Good Morning,

It's 7:28 and currently 6 degrees Fahrenheit in Terre Haute. I'm up suprisingly early for a Saturday morning. A bowl of tuna fish followed by some red tea and I'm watching the sun come up as I make final plans for our trip to Wilson, North Carolina at the end of this month. Members of the AIDS Ministry Network of Disciples Home Missions will be traveling to Barton College for an HIV/AIDS focus event. We will provide prevention education, outreach, and free anonymous testing over the course of two days February 1st and 2nd. I'm excited about this upcoming event, our first since General Assembly. Five members of the AIDS Ministry Network will be traveling with me to North Carolina and I am confident we will affect change through our ministry there.

I have high hopes for 2010 for the AIDS Ministry Network, in addition to the Barton College event, plans are in the works for Quadrennial Assembly in Greensboro, NC and just recently we received an invitation to bring the mobile HIV testing unit to the National Convocation of the Christian Church (DOC) in Oklahoma City this summer!

I pray that God will show us new direction this year, and continue to bless our ministry.
