Until about 2 weeks ago, we had never even heard of the Watoto Children's Choir. Wow were we missing out! This week the choir came to our town to sing at our church and we had the honor and privilege of hosting an adult and 3 boys in our home for a few nights.
Their company blessed us tremendously! We were able to learn so much about Uganda (which is great since Kyle will be going there in the fall)! Our kids were able to talk to and play with children from a completely different culture and background. These boys are just angels on earth. So gracious, so polite, and so loving!
Their adult companion was charming and full of life!
Hearing them sing this morning at church was just the icing on the cake. We were so sad for them to leave. Please take a moment to check out http://www.watoto.com/ and read more about the amazing ministry they have. This is not your regular orphanage. This is a program to train these children and to give them a family. This ministry blesses not only orphans, but widows and young mothers with HIV/ AIDS.
Above that if you hear the Watoto is in your area, run to see them! It will be more than worth your time! If you have an opportunity to host them in your home, be the first in line! They will bless you tremendously as they did us.
Special prayers for our new friends Roger, Julius, Twaha, and Gerald. We miss you already!
