Trevor Smith has spent a lifetime serving the needy through The Salvation Army. Since l985, the main focus of his ministry has been with people affected by HIV/AIDS. In this personal reminiscence, he reflects on how he became involved and the people he has met and become friends with over the years. Written in an accessible style, with pen portraits of people and touches of humour, it conveys well the truth that where the most vulnerable are, there is Jesus. The author's approach has been entirely non-judgmental, and he emphasises how much he has received from those he has been privileged to befriend and minister to.
