African Children's Choir - The Pictures I Promised!

Let me begin by telling you how AMAZING the concert was! In the 1 1/2 hour service, I took 69 pictures. :-) We left with hearts full of excitement and anticipation for bringing the little boy home from Ethiopia that God has for us.

Enjoy to pictures!
*By the way ~ These children were the same ones that appeared on the American Idol - Idol Gives Back show. They sang with Josh Groban.
The concert began with lots of dancing and singing of African songs.

Probably the highlight of the show for both of us was when the children came out individually introduced themselves and said what they wanted to be when they grow up. To hear these young 7 - 9 year old children sharing their dreams brought tears to my eyes. Their were several children who wanted to be doctors, teachers and pilots. One said they wanted to be a Missionary and one said a Pastor. The sweetest little boy ended by saying he wanted to be a Plumber! Adorable!

They ended singing worship songs like Here I am to Worship, O Happy Day and This Little Light of Mine.

Paul & I bought a couple CD's, a DVD, a bandana and picture of the group. Paul really wanted to do something special with the bandana and picture for our little boy's room.

I am so thankful we set aside this special time to go to the concert. If they are ever in your area, don't miss it! Check out their website to find out their schedule.
