FC: The K'ekchi Choir 25 July - 7 Aug 2012 | Journey Ne'er Forgotten
1: It was the newly published hymnbook in K'ekchi (Eb' Li B'ich) that spawned the amazing Kekchi Choir Tour. Humbling and glorious were the Firesides where, for the first time, the beautiful K'ekchi Saints heard a program entirely in their native language. There were school activities that allowed us to interact with the students in many ways. Often the students repaid us with entertainment.
