I can hardly believe that the dog days of summer have almost come and gone. My husband is a teacher, and he is already preparing for the excitement and rush of the back to school season. Though it has been a few years since I have felt that August excitement about the onslaught of a new school year, I have to say that this time of year still makes me think of bouquets of freshly sharpened pencils, and this year has been particularly exciting, as CARE for AIDS is getting ready to go back to college.
As most of you know, CARE for AIDS is about to embark on its sophomore year at four college campuses around the country in the form of CFAU. CARE for AIDS University (CFAU) is the college platform for awareness and fundraising for CARE for AIDS. Last year we had three thriving chapters, one at Furman, one at Truman State, and one at Vanderbilt. This year, we are proud to expand to Auburn, as well. The students who are involved with CFAU are some incredibly passionate, talented, and inspiring young leaders, and we are proud to say that they are part of the CARE for AIDS family.
Just this morning four of these students and one of our CFA staff members boarded their flights to Kenya- each of them first timers. This week will be their chance to put faces and names to the cause they have been so passionate about on their respective campuses. Please pray for their experience in Kenya, that they would have an impact on the churches and communities, and that in turn the clients and stories would have an impact on them.
Stay tuned to hear more about CFAU as the start of the school year draws closer- we cannot wait to share some exciting stories with you this fall from all four of our campuses!
