FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE OCTOBER 26,2016
TYLER, TEXAS – Texas College in conjunction with Parental Care Ministries (PCM) will host the PCM Ugandan Choir on Wednesday, November 2nd at 11:00 a.m. in the College’s Gus F. Taylor Gymnasium. The event is free and open to the public.
The PCM Ugandan Choir is in its fourth U.S. tour. The theme of their 2016 tour is Run to Win which references the biblical scripture found in I Corinthians 9:24, “Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize.” It has been the goal of PCM for years to be able to bring that joy to the people of the United States. Whether the choir is singing, dancing, or showing their skills on the drums they hope their audiences will feel the love they are conveying. Despite difficult upbringings including lack of food, unclean water, or being orphaned; these children are able to share the hope that they have for an abundant life through Jesus Christ.
