It’s been an awesome 5 months of tour in the US and only 2 weeks left before we return home.
Here are our youngest Steven and Emmanuelle. Only 7 years old who have illuminated the hearts of people with their beautiful smiles and acts of worship.
“I’ve enjoyed eating yogurt and ice cream”, says Emmanuella.
“I’ve enjoyed playing in the ocean water and in the park”, says Steven.
Steven loves playing soccer too.
Both Steven and Emmanuelle come from one of the Watoto Homes in the Northern part of Uganda called Laminadera. They were rescued as little babies and now they are confident, Happy and brilliant children.
He’s a father, an uncle, a teacher, a mentor and most of all Watoto Children’s Choir Bus Driver for all the Watoto U.S teams. He goes by many titles. His name is John Matiyosus.
Uncle John started serving with the Choir 8 years ago.
“I love serving with the Watoto Children’s Choir. My greatest moments are when I meet the new Aunties and Uncles and the Children who are traveling for the very first time in the U.S,” he says.

From the day Choir 82 landed at Dulles International Airport in Washington DC, September 26th,2016; Uncle John has been taking good care of us while capturing every moment on his camera.
“Since I started touring, I have come across about 300 children and I absolutely love all of them,” he adds.
He doesn’t stop at taking care of Choir teams that travel to the U.S, he also sponsors 5 children. For the next 6 months he’ll be traveling with Choir 84 in the Mid-West of the U.S who will be touring with our new production called Signs and Wonders. We wish him and the team an amazing experience as they testify of God’s greatness.
