A praise report is needed to be shared with everyone!
Our Sozo Children’s Choir is officially back home in Uganda! Although they left Birmingham on July 17, and arrived back in Uganda late on July 18th, they have been in an extensive quarantine since that time but they have all been cleared to return to the Sozo homes or to their respective families. For that, we are very grateful!
Although the tour did not go as planned due to the pandemic, the choir members have all expressed their gratitude and appreciation for their time here in the States and for the time they spent meeting host families, sponsors, and the many new friends they made along the journey.
We are eternally grateful to everyone who made the tour a success despite the circumstances.
While the kids are returning to daily life back in Uganda, it is almost time to begin planning the 2022 choir tour! In the next few months, our team in Uganda will name the 2022 choir members and we will begin securing visas, making travel plans and BOOKING performances.
Until then, we wanted to share a few comments from the choir and some photos of them celebrating their safe return home. I hope these will put a big smile on your face–just as it did mine!
