The Ugandan Kids Choir, which has been touring the Western and Southern United States since last February, has successfully finished its tour. Many tears were shed all around as the children hugged their tour leaders good-bye at the airport a few weeks ago.
After 11 months in the U.S., these children shared their gift of music and dance with hundreds of people, but most importantly, their love for Jesus and desire to get as many children sponsored as possible. They were truly ambassadors for the Lord. As tour leader Richard Carey says, “This journey has been an amazing and blessed adventure!”
As our East Coast Choir Tour winds its way through the wintery countryside, Agnes bundles herself up tightly with a warm scarf and a hat pulled over her ears. She’s not used to this climate! She comes from the hot, humid climate of Uganda where palm trees sway in the occasional breezes. Now, snowflakes float lazily past the window where she gazes out at the bare trees stiff with frost.
Agnes thinks back on her life and how she got to where she is today – touring the United States with 10 rambunctious kids who are singing and dancing their way into the hearts of so many Americans.
The children in the choir are great examples. Examples of how God heals, examples of how to worship whole-heartedly, examples of taking joy in the Lord. Most recently, they were examples of how each one of us is called to build up our fellow Christians.
