ST. GEORGE — The African Children’s Choir returned to St. George Friday night after a two-year absence and one attendee said it was well worth the wait.

“(The) amazing high energy Uganda group of children sharing their joy in the Lord last night was awesome,” St. George resident Bob Vosper said in a Facebook post.

The Christian choir helps with relief and development to African nations, as well as providing for the education of the children involved in the choir.

    Thanks Dave for some great shots that really capture the moment. It is amazing the joy they have coming from such poverty. One thing I have noticed on my visits to extremely poor areas is that the people are very joyful…..even though they have few possessions. We on the other hand have to have mini-storage for the overage of items we own……or does that excess own us…..sometimes I wonder.
