A PERSONAL JOURNAL OF A MAN LIVING WITH HIV

Hope For The Living

This is the theme of AIDS candle lighting memorial ceremony held yesterday morning at H4.

It was my first time to attend such event after being diagnosed HIV positive for almost three years. There were 40-50 people who attended the small gathering sponsored by this particular NGO who has been a partner of H4 for the past several years in helping out the PLWHA.

The organizer who happens to be my doctor asked me to share my testimony because according to her it was a perfect fit for the theme. She asked me to highlight the hope I have seen in God when I accepted the Lord Jesus Christ in to my life and surrendered all of me to Him one year and five months ago. I was not sure if I am going to tell about my struggle with SSA but there were people like me in the audience that's why I opted to share it and how I am dealing it with.

People were blessed I have sensed and felt it even though there were only few people who approached me to confirm. I really thank God for what He's doing in my life, it's not that easy with my struggle but I believe and I have faith that God will sustain and strengthen me to win this race and be victorious till the end.

I am giving back all the honor and glory to our God Almighty and Lord Jesus Christ!

God bless you brother,

Greetings from Canada. I just found your blogspot and want to continue to follow your journey. I pray the Lord will give you strength for each day. Great that you got a job and hope all goes well. I have recently started a blog with much the same intent as you to speak the truth in love to the younger generation who I see struggling so with sexual issues, and also just to share. God is so good to us. Take good care.
