World Help is a nondenominational Christian charity that sponsors children around the world by providing food, clothing, medical attention and educational opportunities, according to their Web site, www.worldhelp.net. They also distribute Bibles and try to start new churches to spread the Gospel.
Crossroads Fellowship Church is sponsoring the children’s choir’s performance, which will be at the Trigg County High School’s Little Theater at 7 p.m. on Oct. 25. The one-hour concert will feature several songs, in both English and native dialects, as well as personal testimonies. Also part of the concert is a video presentation, featuring footage of the children’s home countries.
“These children represent thousands of children in World Help’s Child Sponsorship Program around the world who suffer hardship, hunger and disease,” said a press release from Crossroads Fellowship. “The purpose of Children of the World is to generate compassion and inspire individuals to get involved in the World Help Child Sponsorship Program, helping to change the world… one child at a time.”
Pastor Geoff Baggett said that World Help has three children’s choirs that tour around the United States. The choir features disadvantaged and orphaned children from India, Uganda, Brazil and the Philippines. This is the second time in the last year that Crossroads Fellowship has sponsored a performance by the choir.
“It was just such an enormous and cool thing that we decided to have them back,” Baggett said.
The last performance was at the church, but Baggett said they could only hold an audience of 140 at the most. He decided to rent the Little Theater because there would be more room and it would open it up to more of the public.
