“Asante” is a Swahili word translated “Thank You” in English. The Asante Children’s Choir is made up of children from East Africa, a region recovering from years of civil war and genocide that have claimed millions of lives leaving thousands of children and women as orphans and widows. The Choir is dedicated to spreading love, hope and joy while raising awareness for the desperate plight of orphans and other vulnerable children. Their colorful clothing, pounding drums and sweet voices demonstrate their hope and dream for a brighter future. Their inspirational stories of resilience have instilled hope in the hearts of all those who have seen them perform.

All youth ages 12-19 are invited to a fun-filled weekend in Nipigon, October 3-5, 2014!

Teens will learn how to ‘encounter’ God’s amazing grace in their daily lives. Weekend activities include modern music & worship, guest speakers from ‘Teen Challenge,’ recreational games, and food!! It is our hope to cover all event costs through fundraising efforts & donations.

Registration forms will be available at most Anglican Churches or by contacting event coordinator Jayne Coy @ (807) 707-5076.
