Posted: Jun. 2, 2018 12:01 am

QUINCY -- The Watoto Children's Choir, a group of 18 orphans from Uganda, will perform at 7 p.m. Tuesday, June 19, at Vermont Street United Methodist Church, 818 Vermont. The public is invited; the concert is free, but a love offering will be received.

Prior to the concert, the public is invited to a complimentary meal from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. at the church's Café Vermont.

The choir will feature a brand new concert, Signs and Wonders, including worship songs that share the stories of the children and the joy that they have because of God's love. The children will share stories of how their lives have been changed and how they have been called into a life of purpose to transform their communities.

Since 1994, Watoto Children's Choirs have traveled the world sharing the plight of Africa's orphaned children. Each child in the choir has suffered the loss of one or both of their parents, but they have been rescued and now live in a Watoto village. Watoto is a holistic child-care solution initiated to serve the dire needs of the people of Africa.
