wow. read this -

Johannesburg is the largest city in South Africa and about 750,000 of its three million citizens are currently infected with HIV. The city's official death rate has increased by 35 percent in the last five years. It reached 19 per 1000 in 2002, largely due to an increase in AIDS-related deaths in young adults. "This year we will bury about 20,000 people. In 2010, unless someone develops a cure for AIDS, we expect that figure to be 70,000," says Alan Buff, who is responsible for cemeteries at City Parks.

well, the retreat was a success, i think. at least for me. the breakout was great fun, got to tell Justin what Christianity really is about. pray for him.
probably the best part was having Communion for the seniors on Sat nite. i think they really enjoyed that, and i hope they really felt appreciated, which was one of the goals.
