The Choir Goes to Outer Space! January 8, 2019

Since arriving in the U.S. the Ugandan Kids Choir has been on many incredible fieldtrips. But their trip to the Kennedy Space Center over Christmas break was out of this world!

The kids were so excited about this visit – they haven’t stopped talking about it yet. (more…)

A Joyful Meeting November 29, 2018

These videos are too cute to keep to ourselves. The connections formed between sponsors and their sponsored children are always special. And when they have the opportunity to meet in person, it’s even better! It’s rare, but thanks to the Ugandan Kids Choir, it’s sometimes possible!

Adventures in American Food October 5, 2018

As they travel around the United States, trying new American food is one of the Ugandan Kids Choir’s biggest adventures. It can sometimes be a challenge to help them balance trying new things and providing them food they like. But usually it’s just pure fun to watch them experiment!

My best subject is… September 7, 2018

For many kids in the U.S. it’s back-to-school time! But the Ugandan Kids Choir has been making school a priority the whole time they’ve been on tour. So, instead of cute back-to-school pictures, I give you an adorable school favorites video!

In Uganda, they use the word “best” to mean favorite, and the choir kids want to share with you their “best” subjects!

Yvonne Meets her Sponsor Family! July 31, 2018

Don’t miss this special report from Tour Leader Emma, on the road with the Ugandan Kids Choir:

Wouldn’t it be awesome to have the opportunity to meet your sponsor child? Take a moment to envision how meaningful it would be if your sponsored child had the chance to meet you, face to face. During the choir’s recent stay at Grace Christian Fellowship in Winchester, New Hampshire, this is exactly what happened for Pastor Matthew Worrall and his wife, Kathy.

You can probably imagine the initial emotions felt by both Pastor Matthew and Yvonne when the two of them finally wrapped their arms around each other for the first time. There were tears, there were smiles, and there was an obvious sense of awe. Little Yvonne was now more than an adorable face proudly displayed on Matthew and Kathy’s refrigerator….they could now physically hug her, talk with her and watch her face light up as Matthew explained how he continuously prays for her walk with Jesus.

Watch this precious video of the moment they first met!

The Heart of Worship February 7, 2018

The Ugandan Kids Choir is a lot of things. They’re tiny ambassadors for kids in need. They’re big dreamers and sweet friends. They’re on a mission to spread laughter and joy. But at the end of the day, everything they do comes back to worship. A few weeks ago, we sat down with them to talk about worship. For them it’s not just something they do when they’re on stage. It’s what they do all the time!

“It ends up being family” November 7, 2017

It’s hard to believe that the 15th Ugandan Kids Choir is wrapping up. It seems like just yesterday they stepped off the plane from Uganda. They’ve grown so much this year! And not just in height (although they’ve done plenty of that!) – they’ve grown academically, emotionally and spiritually too.

Ten kids in brightly colored shirts all piled onto a couch, sitting on the back, the arms, or even each other.

Wherever they go, this group of kids lights up the room.

As they wrap up their tour, we took some time to sit down with them – both the kids and the leaders – and reflect on how far they’ve come.

Our first question was easy. What is your favorite memory from tour?  (more…)
