Watoto means "The Children" and these children are on a mission. Through their inspirational songs and compelling stories, the Watoto Children's Choir is spreading a message of hope for Africa's children.
They will be in concert at 6 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 11, at the First Southern Baptist Church, 2820 N. Pleasant View Drive in Prescott Valley.
In 1994, Gary and Marilyn Skinner were moved with compassion concerning the critical orphan crisis in Uganda. As a result, Watoto Child Care Ministries was established as an outreach of Kampala Pentecostal Church. Today, Watoto is caring for more than 1,500 parentless children by providing physical, emotional, educational and spiritual care.
A love offering will be accepted at the close of the concert. For more information, call 772-7218.
