HIV/AIDS Consultant, Southern Africa

Janet Guyer, the child of missionaries to Thailand, now serves as a regional AIDS consultant for Southern Africa, a PC(USA) AIDS consultant in Africa. This AIDS ministry partners with churches in Zambia, Malawi, and South Africa. Sitting under a tree outside a church in a village, one man shared with her that AIDS is "like a wild elephant charging through the village." A current initiative for Janet is to design retreats for pastors who carry the heavy burden of pastoral care for families and whole communities whose lives have been turned upside down by the impact of AIDS.

Regional Liaison For South Africa

Doug Tilton works with the South African Council of Churches (SACC) and is regional liaison for southern Africa. He has been under appointment since 1992. The SACC was one of the bodies at the forefront of the struggle against apartheid and for democracy in South Africa. The historic negotiated settlement that cleared the way for the country's first democratic elections in 1994 marked an important victory in the struggle for political rights. Much of their work now focuses on health and community development. Roughly half of the country's 36 million Christians are affiliated with SACC member churches.
