Concert Choir – Christmas Concert Tour

Pictures from the Concert Choir Christmas Concert Tour.

NEWS REPORT :: November-December 2009

Dear Brethren:

A blessed new year to everyone!

After we resumed our classes on the second semester, we went through our regular classes and activities. The music department, particularly the choir, worked on their songs for the Christmas Cantata. To have extra time for choir, we needed to meet three Mondays to augment time for choir practices. We planned that the concert tour shall be on December 6-22.

There were 19 presentations of the concert choir – 16 of them are churches and the rest are schools. Many invited the concert choir and we even missed some of them because of the lack of time. Below was the choir itinerary:

It was a long, tiring tour yet very rewarding because everything was done for the Lord. May His name be praised!

To all our brethren who supported us – sumptuous meals, nourishing snacks, accommodations, your love to us – we give you thanks. May the rich Lord bestow you more blessings.

Meanwhile, we continue to pray for our supporters (churches as well as individuals) who continuously extend their help to ABS. We praise the Lord and we thank you for your love to the ministry. Your demonstration of unrelenting support is giving us strength to move on in fulfilling the mission of the seminary.

God bless you all…

In Him,



Administrator, ABS
