This Sunday March 30, I’ll be part of Ken Whiteley’s final Gospel Sunday of the season.

Ken Whiteley’s popular Sunday afternoon gospel music series at Hugh’s Room celebrates it’s 12th year! For this show, Ken has invited singer/actress Tabby Johnson, singer/songwriter/storyteller Kim Doolittle, bassist Andrew Downing, and along with Njacko to close out this 12th phenomenal season at Hugh’s Room.

Whether you are coming for the terrific music, to sing and clap along, or for the spiritual experience, this promises to be an accessible and exciting blend of musical styles that is appropriate for music lovers of all ages (indeed – Njacko’s little one intends to be in the audience).

Amazing Progress at Ecole St. Albert Le Grand!

Some of you may already know that we are in the  middle of a 5 year partnership with a school in Bazou, Cameroon, working with them to improve their infrastructure. We started this project after visiting the school, St. Albert Le Grand, in 2009 when we were in Cameroon to celebrate the lives of Njacko’s parents. When we were in Bazou, we visited the school to drop off school supplies that we had collected from friends and family in Canada however when we were at the school we realized that school supplies weren’t the school’s greatest need. We have a separate blog to track the project, and we invite you to have a look at all of the work that has been accomplished over the past three years – www.BazouSchool.blogspot.com. We have just put our latest update on the blog, and are so excited to share it with you. Please have a look. We are happy to answer any questions you may have about the project, so don’t be shy! Here are some of the photos from this year’s project (before, during and after), you will find more on the blog!       thanks for reading! Val
