A wonderful Zoo Day

A couple weekends ago, we had the privilege of Hosting the Watoto Childrens Choir from Uganda in our church!  These kids come from Poverty and some are orphans from the huge issue of HIV in Uganda.  Watoto is a Ministry that finds sponsors for these kids to be supported in Homes and villages built by the ministry.  The kids are placed in families with a house mom and get to go to school and are basically given a future - getting them out of poverty.  We have been supporting several kids thru Watoto for the last several years and we love to be able to hear the Choir that tours the United States each year.  The Choir of 22 kids and 10 Adults travel the US for 6 months doing concerts and spreading the message of success in Uganda.  It is an amazing program and we are so blessed by these children.  We got to host 2 girls aged 8 and 10 in our house for 2 nights and their Auntie (who is a graduate from the Watoto program).  We had so much fun learning all about them and we even got to take them to the Zoo on their Day Off!  Here's a few highlights from the DAY:
