In September 2011, Watoto Children’s Choir 50 set out to launch the new tour programme, Beautiful Africa: A New Generation. It was the first choir to present this dynamic production that is currently touring Australia, Canada, UK and the US.
The choir toured the West Coast of America and thousands of people came into contact with their life-impacting message of hope.
“People welcomed us as missionaries, sharing the love of Christ in a society that is lost and without hope,” says Jesse Ntaborwa, Assistant Team Leader.
The tour was an eye-opening learning experience for the children. All of them have lost one or both parents and were rescued from desperate situations before joining the Watoto family.
“The children talked about Jesus, shared their stories and prayed with people. Everyday we were grateful to be able to share the good news of God's healing power with many different people,” recalled Paula Buzu, Choir 50 Team Leader during a welcome home party at Watoto Church in Kampala, Uganda.
“Sponsoring a child is more than giving money. It is about transforming a life. Beautiful Africa is the story of a new generation of Africa’s leaders who are ready to transform their continent,” Paula concludes.
