Watoto Children's Choir Concert
on Saturday Evening, April 20, 2013

Beautiful Africa: A New Generation features vibrant, original music; dance routines; stories of transformation; exciting audiovisual effects; and EVEN music videos – all produced to celebrate the beauty of Africa and the transformational power of the love of Jesus.

Salem's Ministry Partners Pleasant VIew Lutheran Church provided the venue.

Watoto Children’s Choirs present Concerts of Hope as a voice for the cry of the African child, many who have suffered some of the worst atrocities known to man. But whose lives have been restored by the love of Jesus.

Watoto, based in Kampala, Uganda, is an holistic care program initiated to serve the dire needs of Africa and her people.  Each of the children in the choir have suffered the loss of one or both parents.  They live in Watoto Children's Villages where they receive the care and nurture they need to group up as productive citizens of their county.  Click on the Watoto logo to the right to link to their website.

 With vibrant original African, dance routines; life-transforming stories, the tour is indicative of the new generation of leaders emerging out of Watoto.  The local concert had additional support from Lutheran Child and Family Services in Indianpolis and Pleasant View Lutheran Church.
