Watoto Children’s Choir returning to Amherstburg April 2

 

Special to the RTT

Watoto Children’s Choirs have travelled extensively since 1994, sharing a message of hope for Africa’s orphans and widows.

In January 2017, Watoto launches a whole new Watoto Children’s Choir production, “Signs & Wonders,” that celebrates the joy of salvation.

The choir will be performing in venues across Canada from January to July 2017. This dynamic production boasts a choir comprised of orphans and other vulnerable children.

It will present new worship music from Watoto Church in Uganda and invite audiences to experience an encounter with God.

Signs & Wonders will be presented in Amherstburg April 2 at Amherstburg Community Church, located at 125 Alma St., at 7 p.m.

The Watoto Children's Choir will be performing at Amherstburg Community Church April 2.

“This production is going to challenge preconceived ideas about miracles. It demonstrates that each of our daily lives are signs and wonders of God’s work in us. This is evidenced by the miraculous transformation that Jesus works in people who were once lost, but are now found. We see this through the innocence of the child telling of their transformation from their dark past to the light that God has shown upon them,” says James Skinner, creative director of Watoto Choirs.

Through the power of their testimonies, the children will share stories of how their lives have been changed, and how they have been called into a life of purpose to transform their communities.

“I am excited to be a part of Signs & Wonders. I know that I am a wonder because I am chosen by God as His child,” exclaims eight-year-old Esther Kahangi.

Kahangi is one of the children who will be travelling with the choir touring Canada in January 2017. After being born at a local hospital on the outskirts of Kampala over seven years ago, her mother abandoned her. Esther was rescued by Baby Watoto and arrived as a premature baby, spending her first weeks in an incubator until she was well enough to move to a crib. Now she is an energetic little girl, with the most memorable smile and dance moves.

There are no tickets being sold but there will be a free will offering taken. Seats are first come, first served.
