Gettin’ busy

Just finished Day One of my internship at Family Health International. Turns out I will be workring primarily with the Orphans and Vulnerable Children (OVC) Unit, an assignment that fits pretty well given my history in Peru and my future work in Botswana.

One of my potential assignments is to co-author an article for Christianity Todayabout the role that the American Church could play in the AIDS crisis, a curious and exciting assignment. I spent part of the afternoon researching the contribution that local African congregations are making to sustain their own communities in the wake of the death of hundreds of parents ; it is encouraging to imagine the impact the effect which the focused resources of American churches could have on the micro-scale efforts of these community efforts.
