AMC Ghanaian choir R
AMC Ghanain choir L2

Saturday night's concert by the London Methodist Ghanaian Fellowship choir was excellent — the second half, especially, was joyful and such fun, ending with almost everyone processing all around the church as we sang 'We are marching in the light of God' in two languages! During the first part they sang many of the hymns rarely sung now — I realised again how meaningful many of the words are. The last part was more Ghanain with praise songs in English and two Ghanaian languages, very lively.
Two items were very ably auctioned by one of the choir members, raising £70 for a lovely patchwork quilt in aid of Karibuni, and £100 for the batik picture of a baobab tree for the Alfan Foundation. This was all topped off by the purchaser of the baobab tree giving the picture to the church in recognition of all that is being achieved for children in Africa!
The picture was presented to the church at the beginning of the following day's Sunday service and now there is discussion about where it will hang. Everyone will be delighted to know that over £1,000 was raised for Karibuni, leaving £667 after paying for the choir's coach.
