BENEFITING: MUSIC FOR LIFE INSTITUTE
For those of you who do not know about this organization, the African Children’s Choir goals are to generate hope, healing and justice for the innocent and vulnerable children of Africa. They believe that children hold the key to Africa's future. By providing children at risk with an education and hope today, we believe they can help advance Africa’s tomorrow. The organization has been working towards this goal since their beginning in 1984 when the first choir toured. Since then, each year new Choirs are selected and the Choir children from the previous year return to their homeland to attend schools sponsored by Music for Life. While on tour these children are loved on and given the chance to develop their relationship with God so that they can go back home with a strong foundation.
I had the opportunity to serve this non-profit in the summer of 2014. During this summer, I traveled to Uganda with a few of my peers to volunteer. I fell in love with not only this organization but also the Ugandan people. You can see some pictures of the experiences I had that summer!
So you might be asking yourself how you can be a part of this great non-profit and my journey. Good news! You have a few options! You can help support me financially, this will cover the very bare necessities that I will have on the road (typical travel expenses) with all extra funds being put back into Music for Life! Remember that no donation is too small!
Another great way for you to help is through prayer! Pray that I am challenged in my relationship with the Lord and from that challenge I grow. Pray that I am able to show the kids God’s love in a way that will leave a lasting imprint. Additionally, six and a half months on the road will be taxing and your prayers for my stamina would be greatly appreciated!
