Evangelical Lutheran bishops from across the country had HIV/AIDS tests in Chicago on Wednesday.They're in town for the conference of bishops annual meeting.

The church says the reason for the testing is to raise awareness about AIDS related issues. Many bishops travel to countries where AIDS is common.

The bishops also hope their actions will encourage church members to be tested.
