THE ANFIELD EXPERIENCE

While in Liverpool the choir was given an opportunity to visit the the Anfield Stadium and its wonderful Museum. This blew the kids away especially the liverpool fanatics.

The kids and adults had an opportunity to tour around the Museum and the field its self. It was such a nice red experience for the whole team.

The statute at the entry would give  you an idea of what you are yet to experience on the inside which symbolised championship.

We got to see the different displays of the team’s trophies, medals, uniforms and history about players and coaches. The red coloured museum left the kids astonished and hardly believing that what was a name of a team back in Uganda is now physical and close to their faces.

The major trophies which Liverpool calls the FAB FOUR were all right there and all their historical trophies were displayed.

The choir took pictures and enjoyed this one off experience of the Liverpool football club in the Anifield stadium.

We were taken around by one of the staff members and he made sure we enjoyed to see almost all that there was for us to see and a big thank you goes to him.

10 DAYS IN IRELAND

We travelled to beautiful Ireland by ferry and that was one cool experience for the kids. It was their first time to travel on water and for sure they enjoyed it.

We arrived at Belfast and had a long drive to Derry on our lovely coach. We found a lovely group of Irish people waiting to take us to their lovely homes.

We then moved on to Buncrana in the Republic of ireland. It was such a green, hilly and wet area of the country with lovely people who just loved family life.

With this kind of love and kindness we had no choice but to enjoy our stay with the people and church of Scotland.

THE WATOTO CHILDREN’S CHOIR IN SCOTLAND

what a beautiful country, green with beautiful hills and above all amazing people with  very interesting accents from place to place. As a choir we had a chance to travel to different cities of Scotland, our first stop was in the city of Glasgow.

We had a great time with the family of Victory Christian Centre where we staid for two nights.

We then moved on to different venues including schools for example Stanley Primary School. The school children always enjoyed seeing and celebrating together with fellow children from Africa. The watoto Children’s choir has never left the school children the same. All the kids are left talking about the energy the choir has, the smiles, life and the hope they carry with them every where they go.

We surely had a great time in the beautiful land of scotland and we were so blessed by the different churches we visited. The Scottish people surely have big, generous and lively hearts and are warm in a cold country, though that time around the weather was so warm with the sun out, people taking their dogs for walks, couples enjoying the moments, families spending time together and young people staying out till let under the sky that goes dark at 9:00 pm and later  in the night

 OUR LAST CONCERT IN SCOTLAND

We had our last concert in Scotland before heading for Ireland on the 8th of may in Irvine, Ayrshire at the The Bridge Church. We had a lively audience and great support and love from this family church. They surely gave us a lovely fare well. The kids gave their best in the concert as they are known for that.
