At the New Hope Missionary Baptist Church on Monday, the first day of the week of prayer for the healing of AIDS, Carlos Carter, an Austin resident and activist living with HIV listens to Tracy Jones discuss the impact of HIV/AIDS on the black community. “If I know one person who is suffering with HIV or AIDS, that means I’m suffering with HIV and AIDS,” Jones said. “We need to understand when one of us suffers, we all suffer.” The prayer group will meet at noon daily until Friday, March 12.
