Light the Future Choir Returns to Oklahoma this November

The Maisha Project is raising funds to bring Light the Future Choir back to Oklahoma this fall. Golf FORE Life on Thursday, September 17 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., will be an evening at Topgolf Oklahoma City to support this endeavor.

 

The entry fee of $110 per person or $600 for a team of six includes three hours of Topgolf play, a hors d’oeuvre buffet, raffles and a cash bar. Sponsorship opportunities are available including a private choir performance. The goal is to raise funds to cover airfare for all choir members.

Proceeds from Maisha summer limited edition t-shirts will also go towards travel expenses and may be purchased at https://stores.inksoft.com/maisha_summer_limited_edition_sh.
The choir will return to Oklahoma, accompanied by Kenya Program Director Joshu Ouko, to sing at the annual Light the Future Gala on November 7, as well as participate in cross cultural activities with sister schools and partner churches. They come to share their stories, make personal connections with Oklahomans who support Maisha and engage new donors. Their visit helps Oklahomans develop a missional heart for those within their own community and internationally.

Last fall, 24 members of the 2014 Light the Future Choir ventured across Oklahoma. They visited partner schools, churches, the Oklahoma City Zoo, Frontier City, ice skated, went to a Thunder game, met the OU football and women’s basketball teams and stayed with families all over the metro.

The Maisha Project Founder Beatrice Williamson said the 2014 Light the Future Choir trip was a success and was proud of their performance.

“We wanted our supporters to experience a glimpse of the beauty they help us achieve,” Williamson said.

After traveling back to Kenya, the children were inspired to make a difference in their village. They have visions and goals of how to change their lives and the lives of others around them. Williamson said while they were in Oklahoma, they learned to value time. They also took more responsibility and became more active in their community.

Williamson hopes to see the 2015 choir follow the same pattern and establish more leaders within the Maisha community and inspire those in Oklahoma to do the same.
