The Watoto Children's Choir, a group of 18 orphans from Uganda, will continue its six-month U.S. tour in Kent at 6:30 p.m. Sunday. The children will present their new production, "Signs & Wonders" at Christian Life Center, 1972 E. Summit Road.
The concert will feature worship songs that share the stories of the children and the hope they have because of God's love. All performances are free and open to the public. A Free-Will Offering will be taken.
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.
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 is currently touring with the choir.
"I am excited to be a part of Signs & Wonders," said Kahangi. "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 Brian Houston, senior pastor 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."
