The Watoto choir is currently on a 6-month tour of "Beautiful Africa: A New Generation" in Canada. They performed at Coastal Church this evening, and we had the privilege to not only see their vibrant production, but also meet a very special girl. 11-year old Sandra from Uganda is the sponsored child of Serena's godparents!
The joy of Sandra and the other Watoto children is absolutely radiant; their love for Jesus is so evident. It's a humbling experience to have these children who have so little and have suffered so much in their young lives to minister to us who have so much. As the apostle Paul said in 1 Corinthians 1:27,
"But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong."
