 DESTINY AFRICA CHILDREN'S CHOIR RETURNS

Willimantic, CT - The Council for Christian Arts and Light on the Hill Christian Fellowship will host the Destiny Africa Children’s Choir at the Windham Middle School (123 Quarry Street in Willimantic) on Thursday, October 28, 2010 at 7:00 PM.  The orphan children have traveled from their home in Uganda to share their stories of hope in Great Britain and now in the United States.    In this trip to Willimantic, they are at the end of their tour of the New England states, which is their second trip to the USA.  Last year, the choir ministered to a full house and received an overwhelming and heartfelt welcome from the quiet corner in northeast Connecticut.  Dressed in colorful garb, the choir will present a lively mix of traditional and contemporary songs and dances—and some awesome drumming.

 The choir is comprised of orphaned children, rescued from horrific and desperate situations in the war-torn and AIDS-ravaged villages of Uganda. They are now living and going to school at the Kampala Children’s Centre—a growing community of homes, a school, a farm, youth center, workshop and other facilities among which these children live, learn and thrive.

 Kampala Children’s Centre was the vision of Pastor Arnold Muwonge, who now serves as its Director. Located outside of the city of Kampala, the Centre was for more than 12 years just a vision in Pastor Arnold’s dreams. It opened in 2005, and is now home to almost 100 children. The goal for Kampala Children’s Centre is to eventually be able to house, educate and care for at least 1000 orphans from within Uganda. And the hope is that when these children reach age 18, they will go back into the communities to work, or go on to university, creating change and a better future for them and for their country.

 In addition to sharing their story of hope, the concert tour is also a fundraising effort for the Kampala Children’s Centre.  The Council of Christian Arts is presenting the concert free of charge, but is seeking sponsor to support the fundraising efforts.  Please e-mail us at info@ccawindhamcounty.org if you would like more information about how your family or business can sponsor this event.

 The event is free and open to the public, however, ticket reservations are suggested due to limited seating.   A free will offering will be taken the night of the concert.  Tickets can be reserved via e-mail at tickets@ccawindhamcounty.org by contacting Doreen Bolduc at (860) 455-9616 .

Last year's concert is still fresh in our minds ~
