Saddleback’s CEO Rick Warren got a chance to tell U.S. lawmakers about how his Global P.E.A.C.E. Plan will address AIDS and other health issues faster than any government can do. It took place at a Senate Appropriations subcommittee hearing on State Department global health programs. Seated next to Warren were musician Sir Elton John, and Mark R. Dybul M.D.Executive DirectorGlobal Fund for AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria.
Warren said his interfaith outreach includes working with Mosques and anyone else who wants to join him. From the CSPAN transcript:
THE MUSLIMS SAID, WILL YOU TRAIN US? WE SAID SURE. YOU PICK TWO OUT OF YOUR MOVINGS. THERE WERE TWO MOSQUES THAT SHOW PEOPLE TO BE TRAINED. THAT GROUP GREW TO 60. WE TRAINED THEM TO 120 AND THEN WE 340 AND ON AND ON, WE KEPT MULTIPLYING. ~Rick Warren
