Greetings from Choir 61!
We are having a ball so far and want to share the first part of our journey with you. Follow our blog and stay updated with Choir 61 on the road!
For all of the children in Choir 61 it was their FIRST time outside of Uganda and their FIRST time on a plane! They were all so excited to be heading to Australia!
We arrived in Australia on May 4th and had our first performance on Friday, May 10th at Sunnybank Primary School where we had a great response!
That weekend we also performed at the annual Watoto Mother’s Day High Tea where 70 ladies gathered for food and fellowship to celebrate their own Mother’s and learn about Watoto Mothers as well. The boys helped by accompanying all the ladies to their seats (which they loved!) and the girls sat at the tables and mingled with the guests. We were able to inspire the ladies there with our songs and stories and show them what the love of Jesus can do to transform lives!
We have also been busy with the children studying for and taking their exams in the past week. The uncles and aunties who travel with the choir look after and home school the children while on the road!
There has also been a lot of excitement with birthdays being celebrated, radio interviews and meeting new friends!
Thank you so much Queensland – we have just 11 performances left in Queensland so make sure you check out http://www.watoto.com/the-choir/see-the-choir to find out where we are performing over the next couple of weeks!
