CHOIR 88: DREAMS CAN BE WALKED (Highlights of the twentieth week)

He who dreams not is as good as dead. “

What are your dreams and what have you dreamt in the past? Have you walked your dreams yet?

Choir88 at Google 


What do you think of this? Am sure you think it’s normal because everything is on google. Well we are not talking about the google on your phone, tablet, or computer but the real google land.


How God makes our dreams come true is another mystery. We have learnt that, it’s not ours to worry how our dreams will come to pass but it’s for God. All we have to do is to live everyday and live it to the best doing all you have to do because you never know today could be the stem to the developing tomorrow branch.

On the 3rd and 4th of March, we had concerts and one of them was attended by one of the google officials Ashley Woods, an associate brand marketing manager and she was inspired by our story. It’s from her heart that God yielded our journey to google land.

Can you imagine the questions that could have been rooming in our heads at that moment? How do they do everything they do? How is it possible that they literally have information almost about everything in the world and even the latest? Hahhahaha it was all questions but guess what! We found our answers in this adventure.

Not only was it educational but also very inspiring.

If our feet could speak they would complain to our eyes because the eyes were trapped in the beauty so made perfect and molded with excellence. It was such an awesome experience.


Surely our eyes were left in amazement.

Visiting schools

Reaching out to young souls is not only building the world today but even tomorrow. It’s been four months and we have visited so many schools and one thing that stands out is that whenever students listen to stories of Watoto children, they are so inspired and motivated to dream big, not to take things for granted but more to be happy knowing they are created unique and special.

We visited St, Andrew’s Village Schools, Enfants Educare Pte Ltd, and it was such an amazing experience with these souls and not only for them but also for us.





Visiting St Luke’s Eldercare Whampoa

How old do you wish to live? To live long and healthy is a blessing only from God. Spending some time with these elderly was like being surrounded by books with stories and experiences about life. “To live is to see and experience.” We had a great worship moment with the elders that left them in joy and smiles that only the peace of God can bring.




Concert on Saturday

Signs and wonders of God’s love upon us is our story. We have been lifted from the darkest places to the brightest places. What we echo is not pain but our victory and hope for the future. We are excited to share this love to the whole world because before God’s eyes everyone matters.

“Your legacy is as good as your influence.”

We are greatful to God for touching those around with his touch of love.

Sunday moments

Choir 88 on Sunday 11th March was divided into two groups that went to worship together with Calvary Baptist Church and Gospel Baptist Church. Then later rejoined at Judson Baptist Church and it was another great worship experience. It was the first time experience for all the people to hear about Watoto and our story. It left every soul so happy and inspired. The pictures can tell the excitement.

We are the light of the world (Matthew 5:14). Where is no light there is darkness and he who is in darkness needs light. We count it a big blessing that our light is shining so bright to so many people around the world. We can’t stay silent because then what would our light be for?

“Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.”
‭‭Matthew‬ ‭5:16‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

We count it a blessing to be able to share our story to the world so that they may know and believe our God of signs and wonders.


Have you heard of this our story? If not, then it’s not too late. Just go to to find out about our tour schedule if you are in Asia. But if you outside Asia, just go to and find out when the choir will be in your home area or country. We all need light and God is light.


God bless you and thank you all for supporting us always. We love you.

CHOIR 88; SINGAPORE (Week nineteen highlights)



It’s popularly known as the fine country. Hence anything you do that diverts from the excellence they hold as a country, or break the law, there will be a heavy fine or charge awaiting you. The way you cross the road or drive, chewing gum, can cost you a fine in this land. They have such high standard of excellence. So if you haven’t been to Singapore then you should know so that next time when you plan to go to Singapore you are prepared not to incur extra charges.

Besides that, it’s a very gorgeous city, one of the richest Asian countries, and with very high standards of living yet with cheerfully good hearted people.


Like an eagle rebirthing eagerly awaits for the sunrise, so did the people here wait for Watoto children’s choir 88. Our hearts were crowned with a cloud of comfort and joy that we never felt like we were strangers after coming from places like Hong Kong and Japan that we’re home to us.

What happens when a stranger is no more stranger but a friend?

Just four days here and it’s like we have been natives of this land for years hahahah. We believe that this new journey will be amazing knowing the giver of the vision God, will supply it. He has done it for us in Hong Kong and Japan so will He do it even here.

Meeting some of the church hosts, Cordinators and volunteers

“When passion and desire are ripe enough, they can’t wait for another day to grab their treasure.”

Sharing time with these amazing people who chose to host the choir in their schools, churches, and also serve with us in every way or support us with what we need was very encouraging and assuring that we were in the right place with the right people ready to do the right thing according to God’s plan.

The choir sang and shared its stories with them and the same way they blessed us, so did we. We are so confident that where we are going, we are not meeting strangers but friends and family.


First four concerts in Singapore

On the 3rd and 4th of March, we had our first four concerts, that is two each day at St. Magret Primary School which were hosted by Chapel of Christ the King church.

“When a farmer sees the dark grey clouds, they smile because they know they are about to begin sowing.” Likewise we are so excited because we had a great start with so many testimonies which is only a reflection of the great stories that are awaiting to be written.

On Sunday, we had a great time worshipping with the church just before the concert. Very powerful moments that were filled with spiritual fulfillment.


Life with Auntie Mercy and Uncle Emma

This is the joy of a baby or child at the sight of their mother or father. I hope this explains what we felt seeing these amazing leaders. After four months away from home, we were so glad to see them again and enjoy life with them. They have been so encouraging and appreciative of the work that God is doing in our lives.

“Successful people are what they are simply because they had people who encouraged them and believed in them.” Who is encouraging you today?

We count it a great blessing that Auntie Mercy and Uncle Emma are with us for these days.

Home for the Choir 88 in Singapore

This is one of the greatest highlights so far for us. Seeing the children so excited about swimming, relaxing and so were the adults. We won’t say much but may the pictures give you a ‘glimpse’ of what our home looks like. We are thankful to God for this awesome opportunity.



Look around you today, who or how many people do you see?

Everyone of them adds up to your life. Like your body with so many different body parts yet working for one cause, so do we also in this life. Everyone has been created to be unique with special qualities, hence, we need each other. On this journey so far we have learnt that ‘everyone matters.’

We want to say thank you everyone who has supported us in our first days in Singapore because you have shown us love, care and support and it’s because of this that we count joy to walk this journey.


Esther says thank you so much.

God bless you because you all matter.

CHOIR 88: GOODBYE JAPAN (Week 18 highlights)

What do you see when you turn back and look at your foot prints?
We all start somewhere in life, and we all are somewhere from the start now, but what does our walkway look like?

It’s been 50 days since we made our first foot print in this land on the 9th of January 2018. From that day, everyday was a race and we have run it to the end and not just to the end but as victors.


You might have a question what has their race been like?

Well, happy is your soul because your eyes are on it. Japan is a land with people with warm hearts as said by our team leader Ivan Byarugaba.


Ivan: Choir 88 Team leader

This is not just his statement, but choir 88 statement.
I believe you already know what warm hearts can bring to a person trodding a journey we are on. We have found comfort, love, care, family, fellowship, generosity, friends and most of it all, home away from home. They have been a river with gentle waters and winds that have sailed us through it all to the other shore.

I believe you have travelled before and you will be our witness that this brings wonders to your eyes and ears. We have seen and heard mysteries of wonders, indeed God will reveal unto us what no eye or ear has seen or heard if we seek Him.

“But just as it is written [in Scripture], “THINGS WHICH THE EYE HAS NOT SEEN AND THE EAR HAS NOT HEARD, AND WHICH HAVE NOT ENTERED THE HEART OF MAN, ALL THAT GOD HAS PREPARED FOR THOSE WHO LOVE HIM [who hold Him in affectionate reverence, who obey Him, and who gratefully recognize the benefits that He has bestowed].” ‭‭1 CORINTHIANS‬ ‭2:9‬ ‭AMP‬‬

New culture and transitions that are full of so much humility and respect. We have been humbled by the excellence and kindness that Japan people carry in their hearts. Not only humbled but we have learnt a lot. “What leaves a mark in somebody’s life are not the words we say but the actions behind the great words. “ Actions speak louder than words. We are glad that this lesson has yielded us great testimonies in Japan.

The most important thing, this land has a void that is so ripe and can only be filled with God. So many beliefs and faiths are held by the souls here which is a sign of people searching for a supreme intervention in their lives. People can’t satisfy their void and this is why we are glad that we carried our story of love, light, hope and transformation to these souls. It has touched so many souls in a very incredible way and we thank God for this.
Japan has less than 1% Christians hence the biggest percentage is thirsty and hungry for the truth.

Then He said to His disciples, “The harvest is [indeed] plentiful, but the workers are few.”
‭‭MATTHEW‬ ‭9:37‬ ‭AMP‬‬

We as choir 88 have echoed signs and wonders of God’s love in this land. Many have heard and we believe they have been touched. Today we encourage every voice that has experienced the love of God to share it to those that are lost because their hearts are ready or support those that have openly chosen to carry this message of good news.

Pastor Sunny (Country Director Watoto Asia) ounce said, “ If the people around us are lost and suffering and we Christians are not responding, then it means we are not being practical but just theoretical about God’s love. (Faith with actions).”

We have treasured so much that unwrapping it will take you nights and days to listen or read. We would say that our experience in Japan is as good as an adventure of the beauty of this world. If you missed our experiences and where in Japan we were in the past weeks, please find our full stories in our blogs at

Last days in Japan

Our last two weeks in Japan have been spent in Tokyo at Midorino Christ Church which is our home here in Japan. We already shared our experiences of week seventeen and here we will share our experiences of week eighteen.

“Capturing moments of life is one of the greatest things one can do to create a good memory lane. “ Do you treasure moments?
There is no moment that ever happens by mistake in our lives, every moment is a spark of how we chose to walk the journeys that God has set before us. Whether good or bad to you, it’s all good according to God’s plans for your life. So treasure every moment for you will never have it again.

“~‘For I know the plans and thoughts that I have for you,’ says the LORD, ‘plans for peace and well-being and not for disaster to give you a future and a hope.” JEREMIAH‬ ‭29:11‬ ‭AMP‬‬

Every moment to us is a great testimony because of what God keeps unfolding for us.

On Tuesday 20th February, the Midorino Christ Church helped us celebrate the birthdays of our very own Auntie Leticia, Tabitha and Charity. This is when we say we have found family.


Birthday babies

Friday 23rd February, we had a day out at the field where we had soccer games with the Midorino Christ Church family. We had a record but these people were not sympathetic at all as they defeated our winning record. Well, next time we won’t lose because we learnt our lesson, hahahaha.


Besides the fun, our story still rang through so many hearts as we did our last concerts in Japan. We are glad that we were able to proclaim this unfailing love of God. What we speak is not our own, but of God. We believe and we are confident that our story has impacted so many and shall bare fruit.

“So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, But it shall accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.”
‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭55:11‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Saying goodbye has been so nice mostly when you’re saying it to the people that have walked with you and held you together when it was hard.
On Sunday after the last concert we had to say farewell to this technical team of great gentlemen. Not only have they been helping us but they have been brothers and fathers to all of us. Such people only remind us of God’s love for us. As Watoto, we are grateful to God for such hearts that join us on this journey as we share our story to the world. It was tears of mixed feelings.

One of our greatest highlights in these last days, has been the fellowship we have had together with Midorino Christ Church family. We have had so many moments of worship and prayer together with them. These moments not only do they bond us together but also cause such a tremendous joy and fulfillment to our spirit. Each day of fellowship together was better than 1000 days out in the world because this is where life streams from, the tangible presence of God.

Pastor Nozomi and Marie have been the reason we had such an organised journey in Japan. They have been there and have stood for us in so many areas that we can’t explain. They are a great blessing to the Watoto family.
Them, together with the Midorino Christ Church family have fully taken care of us so well and we leave Japan knowing we have a home to always come back to.
“God gives us the vision and he is the one that feeds it. “
All the resources or people that you need to walk that vision should never be your worry, all that you have to do is to run your race and watch God open doors you never expected in life.

He has done it for us and we have the testimony and it is the story that we share with you today.

To all the churches, host families, pastors, teachers, companies, sponsors, partners, and everyone that has supported us on this journey, we want to let you know that you have been a vessel of love to the world and count your good work blessed.
“To those who by persistence in doing good seek [unseen but certain heavenly] glory, honour, and immortality, [He will give the gift of] eternal life.”
‭‭ROMANS‬ ‭2:7‬ ‭AMP‬‬

Our next stop shall be Singapore and the journey can only get better. We are excited about this and we can’t wait to share the story of signs and wonders.
Tell a friend who knows a friend to tell all their friends to tell everyone not to miss out on the sound of hope and joy that will be echoing in the walls of Singapore. Find our schedule in Singapore at and share it with friends.


Goodbye Japan

God bless you.
