ASANTE African Choir (Fri. Sep 12, 2014 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm)

Asante, which means “THANK YOU” in Swahili, is an eleven-year-old Christian organization which currently educates, feeds, and provides health insurance for more than 2,000 children- mostly orphans- in Rwanda, Uganda and Burundi. The Asante Children’s Choir is made up of 23 children from these underprivileged countries.

The choir was formed originally in order to bring Africa to our sponsors to say “Thank you”.  It has grown as a way for the kids to express their deep appreciation of God, God’s love, and the support that so many show to underprivileged children and families around the world.

 

The testimonies of the children inspire audiences by showing them that, despite the desolate circumstances the children come from, they have beauty, dignity, hope and unlimited potential. Audiences have also been motivated, encouraged and moved to participate in God’s transforming work in communities both locally and internationally. Their colorful clothing, pounding drums, dance, and sweet voices demonstrate their incredible joy in the Lord. 

 

All choir performances are FREE!  

A love offering will be taken as well as African crafts available for purchase after the show.
