POZITIVE LIGHT: HIV/AIDS SUPPORT MINISTRY
Mission of Ministry: Pozitive Light HIV/AIDS Support Ministry is a service provided by the Unity Fellowship Church of Christ in Philadelphia. The ministry will provide a safe, private and confidential space for conversation, education and spiritual wellness for those infected and affected by the HIV/AIDS virus destroying and claiming many lives in our community. We will educate the community about the virus and provide prevention methods that will aid you in living a healthy and responsible life that will not put yourself or any loved ones at risk. We also want to minister to your spirit. With the teachings and spiritual guidance and love of Christ we will encourage, enlighten and inspire all those with heavy hearts that are wounded with feelings of personal doubt, fear and low self esteem. We will put a positive light to a dark situation of with dealing with HIV and AIDS.
A Message from the Facilitator of the group:
Hi, My name is Carlos and I’m HIV Positive. I have been HIV Positive since 1986.
I am drug-free (praise the Lord) and in good health as I write this message.
I send greetings from the Lord in professing that it is because of God’s compassion and love for me that I am where I am with this disease today. Drug-free and in good Health. Nothing is impossible with the love of God in your heart. I also understand that not everyone can say that. That’s why I’m here.
I am coming out so to speak about my status to say no longer will doubt, shame and fear rule over my life and keep me from doing God’s will for me and you. I know I have not been this blessed just to sit on the fence as I watch friends, loved ones and even strangers waste away and die, some alone and with no feeling of self love and dignity. I want the stigma of this decease to be eradicated from this earth and that this human race display the same compassion and love that God gave us by giving up his/her only begotten son that we may live and not die, especially not to die in shame. I pray Pozitive Light can minister to the soul and mind and also body. With a positive outlook on life with the light of God shining in our spirit.
