Welcome to Cry Africa!

Cry Africa represents a network of HIV/AIDS practitioners who are living and working in sub-Saharan Africa. Our mission is to assist African A/G churches and missionaries as they work in the area of HIV/AIDS through evangelism, education and compassionate care. This website  is designed to be a valuable resource in that mission.  As you learn more, we hope that you will be motivated to pray regularly for the many victims of HIV/AIDS, as well as those who are serving on the ‘front lines’.

The Church is strategically placed to make a difference in the midst of this pandemic! Won’t you join us as we work to be the hands and feet of Christ to those who are suffering?

New Resources

This past year, Cry Africa created a video to help teach children about AIDS and to show them how they can help.  It is called The Story of Ati.

The video is designed to be shown in children’s church OR in an inter-generational service (where adults and children are present).  To accompany the video and make it more interactive, we created coloring pages to accompany the story. In addition, we created two levels of “story cards”…..one for younger children (for an adult/parent to read to them) and one for older children and/or adults. These are real life stories about people impacted by Cry Africa and can be used to highlight the ministry or your church’s ministry to those who are impacted by HIV/AIDS.  Please don’t hesitate to use them…..they can be downloaded for free from the resources page.

Encouragement

Trust the Lord with every detail….

Make friends with the problems in your life. Remember that God is sovereign over everything. He can fit everything into a pattern for good, but only to the extent that you trust Him. The choice is up to you.  Every problem can teach you something and will transform you little by little into the masterpiece that God created you to be. These same problems can be stumbling blocks if you react with distrust and defiance. Will you trust Him?

Thank God each day for your problems. This simple act will open your mind to the possibility of benefits flowing from your difficulties. God will not necessarily remove your problems, but His wisdom is sufficient to bring good out of every one of them.
—paraphrased from Jesus Calling by Sarah Young

Scriptures to reflect upon:

Proverbs 3:5-6  – Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge [and trust] Him, and He will make your paths straight.
