A PERSONAL JOURNAL OF A MAN LIVING WITH HIV

And I Am Going to Japan

Since I stopped working to study full time more than two years ago, I pray each year to God that He brings me to a certain place outside the country.

Earlier this year I applied for a 
scholarship to attend the International AIDS Conference in Melbourne, Australia with high hopes as I prayed for this a dream country for me. A month ago I got an email telling me that it was denied so I told myself it was not yet time. Three days after, I got an invitation from Logos Hope to go to Japan where they are presently docked to teach and share my experience on dealing with the most controversial and yet unresolved issue in Christianity and the church...and that is homosexuality. Unexpectedly, I got my visa in just three days after I filed my application and told myself that this is where God really wants me to go and minister to brothers and sisters in Christ from different parts of the world. 

What can I say in awe but “God you are simply amazing!” To all who prayed and still praying for this mission trip you know who you are, thank you so very much from the bottom of my heart. And to the person who paid for the visa-processing fee, God bless you more! I will be leaving in three days praying for His provisions, protection and anointing. Thank you and praise you Lord!

Hello elroi. You will be a blessing to the people you will reach out in Japan. I once aired in our radio program in DZUP a segment titled "AIDS does matter" and i had the chance to promote abstinence as the most effective way to prevent HIV transmission. I am intending to do second episode and I hope I can invite you someday.

Hello Logo erstellen
I assumed you recognized me and you were there judging from your comment. Thanks for visiting my blog....here you will see that Christian life, yours and mine are truly a spiritual battle. Now I am wondering if you and I were able to have small chat or you just heard me in the workshop and in the devotion but regardless...thanks and please do keep praying for me. God bless :)
