Angel House Choir and CD Release (written by Holly)

Angel House has been worshipping God with song and dance in a beautiful way for a long time, but not until April of this year did we form an official Youth Choir. The students recently recorded a CD that we think our Grassroots family and friends will really enjoy. Twenty of the older students have been practicing together since April under the direction of Samson, the worship pastor from the local Lutheran mission church. It was a wonderful adventure to travel up to the recording studio in Nairobi, Kenya to make the CD...not only did they thoroughly enjoy the process of recording, but their minds were opened to new horizons as they experienced life in the big city and in a different country all at once. Upon our return to Tanzania, we held a CD release party at the orphanage and invited friends from all over town to come join us. The Tarime District Commissioner was our guest of honor for the day, and several church choirs from around town joined us and offered their own praise as well. Countless people who had not reached the property until now were able to come visit and see where the children live and the site of our new school that will open mid-January. It has been an excellent six months, and we look forward to our friends and family in the states hearing their beautiful Swahili songs of praise.

If you would like a CD, they are now available for $10 each, which will include shipping. Checks can be made out to Grassroots Ministry (choir CD to be written in the memo line) and mailed to Grassroots Ministry, c/o FUMC, 220 S. Main Street, New Carlisle OH 45344.

Proceeds from the CD sales will go towards books for the new school.
