Last weekend our youth choir, Young Christian Singers, went on tour and I joined them as a so called "chaperone". What a wonderful time we had!! Those kids are just absolutely AWESOME!! I was amazed over and over again by them. You could see that they really do care about each other. They had a great time and tried to always include everyone. There were no cliques in this group of I think 16 or so kids. They were silly, they were serious, they were involved, they were loving, THEY - WERE - WONDERFUL!
It was so great that I have dreamed of this choir tour ever since we got home! They had a rehearsal last night for the welcome home concert tonight and it was just the same (although it would have been a good thing to be a little less silly.) Full of energy and life! As I was sitting there watching them I thought to my self, "I missed these guys!" They missed each other!
Every time they rehearsed or did a concert I teared up (hormones? Maybe). They moved me. It's so exciting to see YOUTH fired up in worship! I was blessed to get to go on this trip with them. I truly was blessed.
Here is a little video of these guys in an impromptu (Acapella) concert at the little Methodist Church at Ward-Mead Park.
