Kick off the Christmas season by attending a wonderful  concert for the whole family!  


There will be something for everyone.  While half of the concert will feature traditional Christmas music, you will hear a diversity of other styles of music as well.  


Enjoy the western music of The English Brothers -- made up of three brothers, the worship music of The Antunes -- a husband/wife duo, and the folk music of the 4 Proches -- comprising 4 young siblings aged 20 to 10. 


All three groups are quite talented, local, and love the Lord.


You can get a taste of their music in the 3 videos below.  


Personally, I think The 4 Proches' version of "Wayfaring Stranger" is better than the one by Trace Adkins!

You'll also get a chance to sponsor an orphaned or abandoned child in Kenya, Africa through Open Arms International

Right now, they meet the physical, educational and spiritual needs of 106 orphans on 52 acres in Kenya.

While the narration begins at the 1:16-mark, the entire 6-minute video is worth your time to watch to understand their vision. 
Open Arms International 2012
Introduction to the great work of Open Arms International

Would you prayerfully consider becoming one of 25 subscribers who might sponsor an African orphan for either $25/month to help with tuition, school uniforms and school supplies or $55/month to cover all of their expenses including housing, food, and medical care. 

For example, Open Arms International needs to find sponsors for these two children below: Collins and Purity.


Orphaned as a baby, 9-year-old Collins lived with a

relative in extremely adverse circumstances.  





Now Collins has found a caring home and tender love with his house parents at Open Arms Village.  He has already started to smile and trust his new family.  When he grows up, Collins hopes to become a pilot.

Meet Collins in the 59-second video below. 


Meet Collins.  

Purity, now 9, was abandoned by her birth mother in a church, but was given a loving home by an elderly lady who tenderly cared for her as she would a daughter. When this kind woman later died, Purity was all alone with nowhere to go. 



After intervention by the District Children's Office, Purity now makes her home at Open Arms Village where she is part of a large, loving family, does well in her studies, helps with household duties, and dreams of flying through the sky and becoming a pilot.


Meet Purity in the 43-second video below.

You can meet the other 35 African children from Kenya who are available for sponsorship right now.

After you pick the child whom you would like to sponsor, download this sponsorship form, print it out, indicate the name of the child, and either enclose a check or fill-in your credit card information before you mail it in.


Even if you're unable to attend the concert,  I hope you will prayerfully consider becoming one of 25 people who we need to find to sponsor an African orphan through Open Arms International.
