Many AIDS Care volunteers try to involve their churches in the ministry.
People affected by HIV/AIDS in Thailand experience severe stigmatisation. This closes doors to jobs, to fellowship with “normal” people and the ability of have an ordinary lifestyle.
However, Jesus promises love to those rejected by the world. He says: “Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest,” Matthew 11:28.
For this reason, we encourage local churches to welcome people affected by HIV/AIDS.
Jesus’ accepting love is revealed through the body of Christ – His church. By abiding in the Christian family, rejected people feel welcomed, loved, and cared for. They can then start understanding their true value in Christ and begin to grow spiritually.
