  • WATOTO AFRICAN CHILDREN'S CHOIR: Location: Trinity Christian Reformed Church, 245 Mill Rd, Goderich   Date: Wednesday, January 31st      Time: 7:00 pm to 8:15 pm (doors open at 6:30 pm)   Cost: Free will offering

    Signs & Wonders is a beautiful musical production that celebrates the joy of salvation. The choir, whose members are orphans and other vulnerable children, present worship music from Uganda and invite audiences to experience an encounter with God. Through the power of their testimonies the children share stories of how their lives have been changed, and how they have been called into a life of purpose to transform their communities. Each story declares the miracle of transformation – from darkness to light; from despair to hope; from loss to purpose; from fear to faith.

    The story of Watoto is one of hope, transformation and empowerment. Since 1994, Watoto has enabled thousands of disadvantaged children and adults to regain control of their lives and to realise their potential. Watoto Child Care Ministries has cared for more than 4,000 orphaned and vulnerable children since it was established in 1994, with over 3,000 currently receiving care. Watoto Living Hope initiative provides crucial support to vulnerable women, helping them to stay alive and to care for their children. To date, dignity has been restored to more than 3,000 vulnerable women through Living Hope.

    Come out and join us for this exciting Christian event!
