Choir 78 Meets The Dinosaurs

Recently our travels saw us go through the town of Drumheller. This Province of Alberta is famous for being the dinosaur capital of the world. There were several sculptures and posters of dinosaurs all around the city. But none was quite as amazing as the one we found marked the “World’s Largest Dinosaur”. It was such a big statue that the children were able to sit at its feet. And it got better! We all got to climb up into its mouth and look down to the rest of the town. We climbed the long flight of stairs past some interesting pictures of dinosaurs to look at and take pictures with. This certainly goes down as one of the most memorable experiences of the tour that none of the children and adults will forget.

Keep checking on us to see what out next adventure will be!!!

Choir 76: Scotland and Thank Yous

Its now close to four months since Choir 76 hit the road for the 2016 European Tour. We have visited so many places and it has been an awesome experience to spread the Love of God through the worship concert OH WHAT LOVE. Not only that, we’ve loved being able to tell the stories of the orphaned, abandoned and vulnerable children under Watoto Child Care Ministries’ care. It has been a phenomenal journey of Love, Care, Hope and the Faithfulness of God.

One of the most unforgettable moments was in Fraserburgh, where the choir was hosted by AOG Central (Assembly Of God). The church has built several Watoto houses and School blocks at Hope Bbira, Suubi, and Laminadera and recently they funded the new Children’s Church building at Watoto Church Bweyogerere. We would like to say thank you again to AOG Central at Fraserburgh for your continued support, partnership and friendship- may God richly bless you.

We’re now off to Ireland for the week! If you want to donate, support, partner or know more information about Watoto take a look at our website: www.watoto.com

Katty (above) looks awesome in one of our necklaces, all made by women in our Living Hope Program- these pieces are so much more than jewellery, they’re the stories of lives transformed.

Finally, the above video is our love and appreciation from Watoto Church to Fraserburgh for the new Children’s Church building. We thank God for our incredible partners around the world. May God bless you so much and thank you for investing into the younger generation.

 

Choir 78’s Mid-tour Camp to remember

Choir 78’s tour of Canada reached the halfway point. And after three months of hard work, it was time to relax and unwind at Brightwood Camp. The children had fun climbing the wall and doing puzzles. They also got the opportunity to ride horses for the first time.

Once that was done, they  had even more fun painting one of the horses. Later that week, we all had the chance to meet our new country director, Lorne Hamyln. We had an amazing time and we’re fully rested and energized for the next three months.
