Every 16 seconds, someone in Sub-Saharan Africa will die from HIV/ AIDS. Justin and Nick, friends from a Cru Bible study at Vanderbilt, heard God calling His church to make a difference. After a trip to Kenya, Justin returned to start CARE for AIDS, a ministry that “seeks to mimic the holistic ministry of Christ in order to transform a community and empower the local church to offer help and support to people who have HIV/AIDS.” As the friends graduated, Justin recruited Nick to move to Kenya to lay the foundation for the ministry’s work in partnership with local churches while Justin remained stateside to build the organization’s support base. The strategic leadership skills learned in Cru helped them train Kenyan leaders who have ministered to thousands through providing health, economic, and spiritual counsel. Since its inception, close to 1000 Kenyans have trusted Christ through this ministry.
Justin and Nick are SENT ONES!
