Highlights Of February

We can’t believe it’s already March…….. kind of feels like we just started touring.

Here are some of our highlights for the month of February:

Famous British singer  Patti Boulaye, came to say hello to the children while we were at the Ealing Abbey.

We went to  Shepperton and Watoto got to play with a group of children that put up a play called “Bugsy Malone”  to raise funds to build a house for Watoto. They plan to build the house next year.

We would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to all our host churches for having us, our host families for their hospitality to us, all our sponsors for changing many children’s lives  and to you all for your generosity towards Watoto.

May God Bless you.

Martin Smith – fun, fun, fun

Of course we all know about CompassionArt… Well for those of us that don’t check out, www.compassionart.tv and learn more about the wonderful work that a group of so many Christian artists are doing to breathe life into the poorest of communities and restoring hope. Watoto is one of the charities that gets to benefit from the compassion arts project.

One of the group members Martin Smith invited  Watoto over to his home for a fun day.

Here are our highlights
