Mwangaza Choir

Diane and I had the distinct pleasure of attending a concert this week in Ladera Ranch. The Mwangaza Choir is touring parts of the United States to raise money for schools, orphanages and clinics back in Uganda. They started their journey here in the US arriving in Texas in February of this year. Their travels have taken them to TN, GA, TX and now California. They return home to Uganda at the end of August.

This was organized by a gentleman that has been to Uganda several times and has gotten involved with the African Renewal Ministries who sponsor the choir. It was well attended and very well supported. And while we look at the excess that resides in Orange County and see so many negatives, it was nice to see the other side of Orange County that isn’t portrayed in the media.

The smiles, like the one on this little girl, were genuine and touching. You just couldn’t help but be touched by the expressions of joy on these children's faces. It was a blessing to have been a small part of the evening.
