I loved having this great example of hope come to our church last night & today. They were here last year, too & can not forget how full of life & hope these kids are. My prayer is that those who have 1 ounce of compassion or love in their hearts take just a moment & see what God can do for you, too. These beautiful kids are an example of what selfless surrender to God can give you: hope and a future. My favorite song they did is "Not Forgotten". "..Light over darkness, Strength over weakness, Joy over sadness, He knows my name. Father to the fatherless, Friend to the friendless, Hope for the hopeless, He knows my name." To God be the glory!!!

Just as God has not forgotten these children; He has not forgotten you. It was such an amazing joy to have this group of children and their selfless leaders come to our church. We first met this ministry 10 years ago when we were a "Host family" for a group. These children are taught many things, but I first hand witnessed an enormous amount of respect, love, self control and their ability to appreciate all things. Adults to children, we can all learn from these children. Having the opportunity to see them perform again and to see how the ministry has grown is such a blessing to us. To know that these children from 1994 to now are being taught about Jesus and how they, with His help, can change their nation and make it a better place to live is a true miracle. They did not begin their lives in the best of situations, but with the help of Watato Ministries they are now making the best of every situation. I encourage you to go onto their web site and get involved with this remarkable ministry. Thank you Celebration Church for bringing them to us. May God bless their travels and continue to use this ministry to further His Kingdom.

if reagan had had not ignored aids when it was first appearing instead if pretending it wasnt there because he was a homphobe, who knows, theres a chance the medical field could be further along in their understanding and treatment of the disease.
