HOUSTON – 22 youth will bring a message of Christian love to Houston as Ugandan Thunder gets set to perform live in concert June 16 at 6:30 p.m. at Alpha and Omega Transformational Ministries.
The group is comprised of youth from the Royal School and Orphanage in Uganda who travel the world performing to raise money and sponsorships to help feed others back home.
The group visited the county last spring and brought their show to Okolona and Houlka. Now they are returning for a performance in Houston.
Ted Moody, founder and director of Pennies for Posho, spoke to the need for support for the children of Uganda during their visit to Okolona in 2013.
“It’s a hard life,” Moody said of filling a void that began as a food program and now has grown to include plans for a high school and clinic. “The children take the opportunity to get an education very seriously.”
He said they attend school from 6:30 to 8 p.m. daily and for two hours on Saturday. Those in the show choir are home-schooled during their travel.
Merchandise for sale at the concert covers the expense of travel so all sponsorship money and donations can be used for projects in Uganda.
Pennies for Posho currently provides food for children in 14 orphanages.
