The Watoto Children’s Choir, a group of 18 orphans from Uganda, will continue its six-month U.S. tour in the Los Alamos area Thursday, Feb. 15, featuring a brand new concert, Signs & Wonders.
The production will be presented at 7 p.m. at Crossroads Bible Church at 97 East Road.
The concert will feature worship songs that share the stories of the children and the joy that they have because of God’s love. 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. All performances are free and open to the public.
Since 1994, Watoto Children’s Choirs have traveled the world sharing the plight of Africa’s orphaned children. Each child in the choir has suffered the loss of one or both of their parents but they have been rescued and now live in a Watoto village. Watoto is a holistic child-care solution initiated to serve the dire needs of the people of Africa.
Abandoned at a hospital in Kampala, Esther Kahangi was rescued by Watoto as a premature baby and spent her first weeks in critical care. Now, she is a healthy, joyful 8-year- old who has toured with the choir.
“I am excited to be a part of Signs & Wonders,” Esther said. “I know that I am a wonder because I am chosen by God as His child.”
“What an extraordinary experience it is to see the Watoto Children’s Choir,” said Senior Pastor Brian Houston of Hillsong Church. “It lights up the place to see these beautiful kids, and when you hear their stories and learn about where they have come from, you can’t help but think of all God has done.”
