We had a very encouraging volunteer meeting for the Youth Against AIDS festival (YAA Fest 08 - Say YAA to Truth!) on Saturday night.
It took us 3 hours to travel from Thane to Andheri - to the Free Methodist Church which is also the site of where the 1/2 day festival will be held on the 6th of December.
The meeting was to start at 7 PM. We got a call at 3.30 by someone who was already there. It was a portent. When we walked in at 6.55 - we found a room full of people. What a wonderful affirmation of what God has been doing - and of the hard work that so many have already put in.
The meeting offered an opportunity for the 60 odd folks present to break up into volunteer work groups and decide on what they will do to help bring the YAA Fest 08 into reality. We ended up with a prayer walk through the premises - going in groups of 2 and 3 and praying for the programme that will be held in less than 3 weeks now!
We have a small Youth Against AIDS facebook group up and running - you can access it by clicking: here We also have a simple website: www.YouthAgainstAIDS.com which has details about the Fest.
God is good - and He keeps using his simple people to do more than they can imagine!
