Choir 67 – Dreaming Big

A dream is given more life when it is shared. Choir 67 had the privilege of being a part of an artistic impression of dream sharing called ‘DREAM BIG’.

Children from the Chinese Methodist School Tanner Hill and Church and our Watoto children spent time together painting and creating a visual representation of their dreams. It was a beautiful sight as each child then stood up and shared what their big dream is.

While some of the art work was fascinating, some pieces were …a work in progress. None the less it was a great opportunity to encourage the children in their dreams. As leaders, knowing the dreams of our children is another step to help connect us with them and further equips us as we parent them. We are more confident then ever,  after hearing the dreams expressed, that we are raising future leaders. The A-Team, Choir 67.

Congratulations Choir 66!

This month Choir 66 wrapped up their tour of Australia and New Zealand and we said our farewells and returned home to Uganda. It has been a busy and exciting 5 months as we traveled throughout Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia, the Northern Territory and the north island of New Zealand.

The tour has been a huge success. We have seen hundreds of people sign up for child sponsorship and raised much needed funds to continue the good work of Watoto. The highlight of tour was definitely seeing people realise the love of Jesus. It is an honor to travel and share a message of hope and we have loved having the opportunity to pray for people and share our testimonies of Gods goodness.

Thank you to everyone who came to see us perform and to all the generous churches, community groups and families who hosted us along the way. We would also like to thank the amazing volunteers who drove the team bus and truck throughout tour, we couldn’t have done it without you. Thank you to Uncle Bryan who lead the team for the very first time, and the 9 Aunties and Uncles who cared so well for the children and did a fantastic job. Our 22 beautiful Watoto children, and future leaders of Uganda, have experienced the opportunity of a lifetime and their lives will never be the same.

Congratulations Choir 66!!

Here are a few of our favourite memories from tour…

Choir 67 – The A-Team Touch Down in Hong Kong

On September 4th, Choir 67, aka the A-Team, touched down at Hong Kong International Airport. After a few long flights and stop over in Doha, Qatar, our team was so excited to arrive at the first stop on our Asian tour.

Amidst all of the excitement, the Watoto children made us proud as they were an incredible representation of Jesus and Watoto while travelling. A number of people approached us in awe at how well behaved the children were and how organised the team was. One gentleman in particular came up to us and said, “In all of my 24 years in Hong Kong, I have never seen anything more beautiful and genuine. You guys have a genuine spirit.”

In Hong Kong, the food is very different from what we are used to, but it’s very delicious. It was a pretty hilarious time as we all learned to use chopsticks for the first time. The kids will be pros by the end of tour!

We look forward to impacting lives by sharing the message of Christ as we travel through Asia.

With love, the A-Team (Choir 67)
