After 6 weeks of hard work, wonderful audiences, great concerts, gracious hosts, passionate volunteers and fabulous food, Choir 74 has come to the end of our tour here in Japan.
The team has had the best time and will miss all of the people we have met through our travels. Thank you to everyone who helped make our Japanese tour a success.
Our prayer is that people’s lives were transformed by the love of Christ that was shared through the lives of the children.
Here are a few of the highlights from our time in Japan:
Having fun in worship
We loved interacting with people attending the concerts
We are so thankful for our faithful volunteers
Some of the fabulous people who hosted us in their home
Some encouraging words from new friends
We loved Japan but are excited to head on to Hong Kong for the next leg of tour.
See you soon Hong Kong!
Choir 75, ‘The Dream Team’, is one big family and in this family, we LOVE to celebrate. As we are traveling for six months, there are many birthdays that get celebrated on the road.
This week we surprised our Auntie Jacky with a special birthday celebration. Everyone got involved in making it a special surprise. The party was filled with laughter, joy and even had some freestyle poetry from Aunty Jacky’s husband, Uncle Daniel. He also surprised her with her favorite flowers, how romantic! What a great way to have the children on our choir witness how a man should honor his wife.
We believe that when you celebrate people and make sure they know how special they are, you will see them thrive in what God has called them to.
Happy Birthday Aunty Jacky! We love you!
We have arrived! After 16 hours of flying through Ethiopia and Hong Kong, Choir 74, “The Titans”, finally arrived at Kansai International Airport on Sunday.
We were welcomed by a cool, evening breeze that was quite refreshing after the long travel day. We were immediately greeted by some of our Watoto Asia team, (Stephanie, Joanne, Yuri and Mathiasun).
We then loaded into our bus and drove to Nabari Refresh Center to start our tour preparations. The next few days were filled with practice, counting merchandise, and learning more about Japanese culture.
To finish our meeting time together, we spent time in prayer for the tour, for the people that will be attending the concert; that God would touch their lives through the children’s stories, music and dance.
We look forward to meeting you at our concerts in Japan, Hong Kong and Malaysia. Check out http://www.watoto.com for concert details.
Let tour begin!
