(If you are one of our intercessors accustomed to getting the Prayer Diary and Newsletter by post, could you please email us with your email address so that we can continue to keep you informed by email.)

Judah Trust encompasses many activities, all of which are undergirded by prayer, intercession, and the firm advocacy of the principles of Kingdom Living. The main activities include intercession, teaching, training, evangelism, and caring for those affected by the HIV/AIDS pandemic.

We are responding to calls of God to become involved, to intercede, to care, train, and to promote the needed change in lifestyle to that of Kingdom Living, all as a means to halting the pandemic of HIV/AIDS.

"See, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the root of David has triumphed. He is able to open the scroll and its seven seals." Then I saw a Lamb looking as if it had been slain, standing in the centre of the throne..."
Revelation 5.5-6
"They will follow the Lord; he will roar like a lion. When he roars, his children will come trembling from the west. They will come trembling like birds from Egypt, like doves from Assyria."
Hosea 11.10-11

AIDS Intercessors is the intercession ministry of Judah Trust and came into being in 1988 following a specific call from God to intercede before him about the emerging epidemic of HIV/AIDS. Many other Christians also received similar calls to intercede and AIDS Intercessors began to gather up the cries of those affected by HIV/AIDS and to circulate them to the intercessors who now form bands of prayer around the globe. A regular Prayer Diary and Newsletter is issued to all our intercessors outlining the people and issues for which intercession is sought.

He saw that there was no-one, he was appalled that there was no-one to intercede ..."
Isaiah 59.16
"I want men everywhere to lift up holy hands in prayer, without anger or disputing."
1 Timothy 2.8

Servants of the Sanctuary is a group of AIDS Intercessors who have undertaken to commit themselves to intercession at a very deep level; to be willing to come within the torn veil of the sanctuary to meet with our awesome God and to draw upon all that God has provided in Scripture and sacrament.

"Then have them make a sanctuary for me, and I will dwell among them ... Aaron and his sons are to keep the lamps burning from evening till morning. This is to be a lasting ordinance."
Exodus 25.8 & 27.21
"Praise the Lord all you servants of the Lord who minister by night in the house of the Lord. Lift up your hands in the sanctuary and praise the Lord."
Psalm 134.1-2
"Is not the cup of thanksgiving for which we give thanks a participation in the blood of Christ? And is not the bread which we break a participation in the body of Christ? Because there is one loaf, we, who are many, are one body, for we all partake of the one loaf."
1 Corinthians 10.16-17

 

Wellspring Homecare Team grew out of the intercession into HIV/AIDS as the team responded to the call of God to be involved in caring for those already HIV positive. The team comprised professional nurses, a group of highly trained volunteers and an administrative support team.

In the early years and in the absence of triple therapy, death followed very rapidly once opportunistic infections had set in. Many of those in the terminal stages wanted to die in their own home and so an HIV/AIDS specialist medical team, together with Wellspring Homecare Team, created a service known as Hospice@Home providing a full care service in the home for terminally ill patients in their last days.

During 1989-92, the initial homecare team looked after some 20 HIV patients. From 1993-1996 the Wellspring Homecare Team looked after 340 patients, (including in 95/96, terminal cancer patients). All 360 eventually died, most in their own home and most with a team member present.

The advent of triple therapy and the closure of the AIDS wards led to the cessation of the homecare work in the UK. The unique knowledge and skills gained from this work has been retained and underpins the work of Judah Trust today.

"Jesus replied: "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: Love your neighbour as yourself. All the law and the prophets hang on these two commandments."
Matthew 22.37-40
