Wow, what a week it's been! My head is still spinning from all the excitement and busyness! I have not had much time to blog as we've had the most wonderful weekend being blessed by the Watoto African Children's Choir from Uganda. They did a concert at Crossways church in St. Ives, Cambridgeshire on Sunday, and it was truly amazing! All of these children have been affected by losing their parents to disease, AIDS or war, but, their lives have been changed by the love and care they receive from Watoto, an organization focused on rescuing, raising and rebuilding these young children into the leaders of the future. I couldn't help but think that they are already leaders in their own right as young children, based on the wonderful example they set to all of us by their joy, love and respect they show to all those around them! I don't think there was a dry eye in the house after they shared their story with us! As my family were very blessed to have a few of the children stay with us, we got to know them a bit better. The love we felt emanating from them, when in the world's eyes they have lost everything, was something I will never forget.
