Jones Laviwa (pictured above), GAIA’s in-country director in Malawi will be visiting Trinity Church in Menlo Park on Sunday, Sept. 29. GAIA stands for Global AIDS Interfaith Alliance, and focuses its work on the country in Africa hardest hit by the AIDS crisis. It was founded by the Rev. Bill Rankin, an Episcopal priest in the Bay Area, and is supported by a number of local residents, including Marty Arscott, who is Chair of the Board of Trustees, and Laurie Hunter, who visited the country earlier this year. Jones will preach at the 10:00 am service and will give a presentation at 11:30 am on GAIA’s work.
