Undetectable ... but!

By Rev. Andrena Ingram

May 9, 2013

Think having HIV is okay, because it is "manageable"?

It very well may be 'manageable' (if that's how YOU want to look at it) ...

This is but a SMALL part of its 'manageability': sitting in a doctor's office (once a month, every 2 or 3 months -- depending upon the status of your health) and getting your blood drawn for the rest of your LIFE.

For the REST of your LIFE!

Yeah ... this is one manageable thing we can do without!

Praising God, anyhow for being undetectable ... but ...

Do yourself a favor: Get tested! Know your status! Be safe!

Rev. Andrena Ingram

Rev. Andrena Ingram

Reverend Andrena Ingram (also known as "Pastor Andrena" or "Pastor Ingram") has become a strong advocate for those living in the margins, as she once was. She is an activist in the HIV/AIDS arena, herself living openly and unabashedly with the HIV virus for over 22+ years.

Raised in South Jamaica, New York, Reverend Ingram served seven years of active duty in the U.S. Army. She would later move to the South Bronx, where she attended Transfiguration Lutheran Church with Pastor Heidi Neumark as her pastor and mentor -- empowering her to rise up out of herself and her life challenges, which seemed to her, at the time, insurmountable.

Reverend Ingram is a graduate of the Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia, with a Master of Divinity. She has been the pastor of St. Michael's Lutheran Church on Germantown Avenue, Philadelphia, Pa., for the past four years.

Reverend Ingram can frequently be found speaking about HIV/AIDS, encouraging everyone "to know your status, get tested, and be informed." Silence = Death.
