Worshiping with Music and with Rice

A couple months ago one of the musicians from our church in Kpegolonou visited me and said that a group of musicians would like to minister to the other churches in our area. They plan to provide music lessons and conference workshops for worship leaders. Those are some of the things that my father did with the churches here and this group would like to continue doing them.

Empowering Togolese leaders to minister to one another is an important part of our ministry philosophy, so when I saw this young man with his own ideas and plans for ministry I wanted to help.

We've not only been helping with musical instruments, the group wanted to help some orphans in a nearby village. So one Sunday afternoon we drove out to Kpime Woume and worked with the pastor there. We sang songs, the pastor gave a brief Bible message, and then we gave each kid a bag. Each bag contained rice, tomato paste, and soap. Then we walked with the kids back from the church. It was a lot of fun.
Again, on Christmas eve the guys and I went visiting and delivering Christmas presents to several orphans in our home town of Kpalime. 

I’m happy to be a part of this group of young men who want to make a difference in their community.  Their passion to lead worship in music and provide for the orphans who need help is inspiring.
