The Grace University Band is going to China for a two-week concert tour in May. More than 25 students and community musicians will tour key places in China and perform many concerts in Taiyuan schools. The main component of the trip is ministering to and creating personal relationships with people. During previous trips in 2007 and in 2010, strong relationships were built and the team has seen the impact of continuing these friendships. In 2010, the musicians performed for almost 15,000 people.
Taiyuan does not attract tourists or business travelers. The Chinese people met have been very interested in talking with musicians at great length. For many, Grace representatives will be some of the few Americans they may ever encounter.
Please pray for the team and consider supporting the musicians financially. Each person must raise $2800 by March. If you are able to give, go to www.GraceU.edu and click on the “Give to Grace” box, and then select the China Tour to apply your donation. Gifts are tax-deductible.
