your GIFT ENCOURAGES PEACE.
Willisa J. Gaut treasured the opportunity to travel to a peace conference in Hiroshima, Japan, with her choir from Wiley College, Marshall, Texas.
“Being able to spread the good news of our Lord and Savior around the world,” she said, “was not only a humbling experience, but also one of the biggest steps I have taken on my spiritual journey.” She is a member of Ebenezer United Methodist Church in Marshall.
August 6, 2015, marks the 70th anniversary of the dropping of the world’s first atomic bomb, which decimated Hiroshima. Connecting with this historic event brought lessons to life for the students.
WE ARE ALL THE SAME.
Diamonique Jackson reflected on sharing the gospel tradition with Japanese schoolchildren. “No matter who you are and where you’re from, we are all the same.” She said the trip opened her eyes and her heart. “Traveling to share music ministry and to promote peace is not optional,” she said. “It is a priority.”
