12 March 2019Villagers able to test for HIV/AIDS for the first time
Over 1,000 people came to be tested for infectious diseases, many for the first time, when Grace & Light visited a remote village.
Locals from many nearby villages converged on Chugwi - near the town of Vom and about 30km south west of Jos – when they heard Grace & Light and its mission partner were visiting the village to share the gospel and test for hepatitis, malaria and HIV/AIDS.
Many had never had the opportunity to be tested for HIV/AIDS before; or heard the gospel message of social righteousness.
In total 132 people chose to be counselled and tested for HIV/AIDS and 37 rededicated their lives to Christ, committing to lead lives of social righteousness according to the gospel.
