What does a dream look and feel like when you’ve dreampt it for five years, only ever seeing it with the eyes of your heart?  And then one day, one great day, it comes true – what was just a whispy idea takes human flesh and feeling.
 
Maybe it looks something like this video below.
 
God burdened me with this dream in 2004 when I first went to Swaziland. I saw that the secret to Swaziland’s salvation is to enable the women to share with one another.  All the abuse and ultimately AIDS itself continues because there is no accountability – just shameful secrets that the women especially have to bear. No one talks about it. And all the feelings of guilt and grief get bottled up inside.
 
So the dream was to create a weekend where they could feel safe and begin to share their painful stories with one another. But as an American man, all I could do was hand my dream off to various women I knew and pray that they would feel about it as I did. And at last our racers helped make the dream a reality.
 
You can read more about it here. Katie did a wonderful job producing the video and our racers loved the Swazi gogos so well. We are blessed. To complete the dream, what happened this weekend needs to become a movement among the women of Swaziland. Please pray with me about this.
