"I'm what the world considers to be a phenomenally successful man. And I've failed much more than I've succeeded. And each time I fail, I get my people together, and I say, "Where are we going?" And it starts to get better." - Calvin Trager
Saturday, June 26, 2004 This is a not great picture of part of one of the small townships near Bibiani at dusk. For the hour or two before this, we were at a public area with most of the community at a drama performance put on by the peer educators ... then we hung out and talked with some of the local people living with HIV/AIDS and some of the regional health care officials. It's all very different from Accra ... not even so much the type of houses, but the population density is so much less and there is so much more green ... but there is also much more rural-type poverty. No running water in most of these places. Electricity (you can see the wires). But hit and miss on roads and phones. We also started to see more evidence of child malnutrition as we went further west. I almost hate to show you pictures of the scenery because it was so beautiful and the pictures just don't capture it ... they're much too small! | Mike at 6/26/2004 11:21:00 AM

"Christ's example is being
demeaned by the church if they ignore the new leprosy,
which is AIDS. The church is the sleeping giant here.
If it wakes up to what's really going on in the rest
of the world, it has a real role to play. If it doesn't,
it will be irrelevant."
