The AIDS Ministry Network of Disciples Home Missions seeks volunteers to serve during the 2009 General Assembly in Indianapolis. Marion County (Indianapolis), Ind., has the highest rate of HIV infection in the state, with over 250 new cases of HIV reported in 2008. Plans are currently being made for the AIDS Ministry Network to conduct outreach testing this summer using mobile HIV testing units.
The outreach project will begin with Pre-Assembly mission opportunities, including prevention education, harm reduction, and free anonymous HIV testing on July 26, and conclude with an AIDS Healing Service on Aug. 2. Interested persons should contact Carl Zerweck at [email protected]. Read more information.
