‘Living Hope’ tour ends in the U-S

By August 17, 2006

USA (MNN) — Five friends completed an incredible journey yesterday. A journey that they hope will bring hope to thousands, maybe millions of people with HIV/AIDS around the world. They’ve spent the majority of the summer in a bus to help children around the world who are in danger of contracting HIV/AIDS.

The five started the trek across the United States on June 10, to make young people aware of the millions who are suffering with HIV/AIDS around the world. They did it with a refurbished bus, traveling some 12,000 miles in what they called ‘The Living Hope’ tour, in partnership with World Vision. Their message wasn’t only awareness, but to provide hope that can be found in Christ alone.

They completed their ‘awareness’ tour yesterday in Seattle, Washington making 40 stops in cities across the U-S. The trip helped them raise $35,000 in pledged funds to build schools in the southern African nation of Zambia.

With millions expected to contract HIV/AIDS in the years ahead, the need for more activism is paramount. But, what’s needed more is the Gospel, the only real hope.
