Saddleback, Willow Creek and AIDS

So Lynn pulled together willing volunteers and without money, they began planning and dreaming "as if they had money and staff." In 2004 Willow did "Christmas on location" with the three teaching pastors going to various parts of the globe. Bill and Lynne went to an AIDS clinic in Africa. When the 20 minute broadcast was piped back to Willow on Christmas eve, $600,000 was raised for this ministry. Their strategy was to partner with churches in Africa that doing something to help with HIV / AIDS.
Good details in the post about Saddleback and Willow Creek and their efforts in light of Worlds AIDS Day, tomorrow, December 1st. Also cool to hear someone marching forward with a dream but no money and no staff - sounds like a person that MUST. Read more from Eric Swanson here.
