Jon Brennan, one of the most memorable cast members of “The Real World,” that aired on MTV in 1993 talks about where the Sozo Children’s Choir from Uganda will be performing on Shaped by Faith this Friday, Saturday & Sunday on 1490 WOMI & 99.1 FM @ 8:00 AM CT. Jon Brennan is a missionary who is serving God and helping rescue and disciple children in Uganda.
The children are in the United States staying with host families and they will be performing in our area this Month!
One of their performances will be at Restoration Church located at Diamond Lake Resort on Friday, January 19th at 7 PM.
THERE ARE 2.7 MILLION CHILDREN WHO HAVE BEEN ORPHANED AND NEGLECTED IN UGANDA. BECAUSE OF WAR, DISEASE, AND DEEP POVERTY, OVER HALF THE POPULATION IS UNDER THE AGE OF 15, MAKING IT THE SECOND YOUNGEST NATION IN THE WORLD.
On May 13th, 2010, Sozo Children was born out of an immediate need to take seventeen children from suffering circumstances. Two missionaries, along with a few in the United States, found children neglected and hungry. When they discovered rats biting these children’s feet at night in their current living situation, they knew something had to change. Ten days later with the support of the Ugandan government, a new family-style home was created for them, complete with bunk beds, Ugandan mothers and fathers, and a vision to disciple them into the next generation of Christian leaders.
Today, Sozo Children operates multiple children’s homes in Uganda, that provide care for over 100 children. Sozo Children’s aim is growing our children in Christ by providing their basic and growth needs through our sponsorship program. Learn more about sponsorship here.
“Sozo” is a Greek word found in the New Testament, used often by Jesus, that means “to save,” both physical restoration and spiritual salvation. This word captures Sozo Children’s vision to provide for children who have been neglected or orphaned while at the same time encouraging them to become disciples bringing glory to God.

The Sozo African Children’s Choir will be performing all over the United States to raise money for the Sozo Children’s Ministry.
