In my last post I spoke about the Ggaba Church in Kampala, Uganda. Their ministry, Africa Renewal Ministries, have some really awesome things going on--one of which is our babies home from where we will be adopting! :) One thing I mentioned was that they have a traveling Children's Choir and how I hoped to get to see them while on tour here in America. Well...
I am THRILLED to announce that this choir, the Mwangaza Children's Choir is coming HERE to our own Pettisville Missionary Church in Pettisville, Ohio!! Yay!!! On March 13, 2011 our congregation will have the honor of having the children sing and share their testimonies of God's faithfulness to them during our regular morning service!! The children's choir is made up of about 20 children who are 8-11 years old. Many of these children are orphans themselves, who will need to be sponsored so they can attend school. What an enormous blessing having them in our midst will be!
Have you been feeling God pull at your heart to get involved? The children will need host families from Saturday through Tuesday morning of that week in March. The director told me that host family availability goes quickly, so if you want to jump in on this you want to jump quick! Also, since they will be in the area, if you attend another nearby church and would like to schedule a mid week concert, let's talk! We want these children to spread their "light" (Mwangaza means shining light in Swahili) to all in Northwest Ohio!!
Hip hip hooray!!!!
