African choir performs

The En-kata Choir from East Africa came to Midway on their nine-week 2014 tour of North America

The En-kata CHOIR

The En-kata choir from Tanzania, East Africa brought their “Why Such Fear?” Tour 2014 to the Midway Community Hall on Thursday, Sept. 25.

They came sharing songs and stories about the awesome power of God at work in their community. Six singers came to represent their community choir. Jeremy Feser from Cranbrook acted as interpreter.

The choir was in the second week of a nineweek North American tour. They were brought to the Boundary through the networking skills of Pastor Martin Fromme of Evangelical Chapel in Greenwood.

The choir’s schedule is available online and they urge people who saw them to call ahead to family members in other parts of the country where the choir will be performing.

Feser explained the choir’s message focuses on five main things—the rights of women, clean water, education, the Gospel and trying to bring to bear the power of song and music on the real problems in their community. Proceeds from the tour will help accomplish these goals.
