Choose life. (Deuteronomy 30:19)

Attended another PACT (Prayer and Action Changes Things) meeting at the local church tonight. Two talks this time, both of which we prayed about afterwards.

The first issue was violence against women, with a speaker from the new Restored charity. As we prayed about the cultural oppression of women around the world, more than anything else I found myself pondering the silent plight of abused men.

The second topic was a couple's recent trip to the Republic of Zambia, complete with video-projector and stills. That actually sounded quite positive, as apparently things there seem to be improving. Although four out of ten adults there still have HIV, they are managing to limit its getting passed down to the next generation. Consequently the HIV rate for the whole population is just one in ten.
