African children love to sing. They don’t just vocalize the words, they put their heart and soul into it. Today I unexpectantly visited one of our homes in Nairobi. As the children saw me coming they ran out of the building and started singing. The younger ones took me by the hand and brought me into their shack where they continued to sing with all their hearts. Then a sweet little 12 year old broke out into a beautiful solo with the rest of the children joining in at the chorus. It was heaven.
A few months ago I was visiting the Kambui School for the Deaf. The children wanted to perform for us and we all gathered together as they SANG and danced. Remember they are deaf. It didn’t seem to matter to them as the smiles on their faces showed the feelings of their hearts. They pulled me in to join in the dance and we all had a great laugh as I tried to stay in step.
We support the school which is also a children’s home. Unfortunately there is not a great amount of support for the disabled in Africa so we have become a lifeline to these wonderful children.
