The song of the redeemed rising from the African plain

"Its the song of the redeemed
Rising from the African plain
Its the song of the forgiven
Drowning out the Amazon rain

Its all Gods children singing
Glory, glory, hallelujah
He reigns, He reigns"

He Reigns, Newsboys

There is just something so special about experiencing worship in other cultures.  The fact that God speaks all languages, that we are bound together by the same bond, regardless of the tongue we speak is so cool!  And when we have the opportunity to experience it "live and in person" is a special thing indeed.

This last week we had the opportunity to go to the interior of the country and spend some time with a pastor and his sweet children.  During this time we got to hang out and interact with the kids, and just be a part of their lives.  

In this song that they shared with me they sing..

"There is no one like Christ,
no there is no one like you..."

Together we sang a lot more songs, I sang a few in English, they returned the favor and sang in Spanish, and even in Fang.  It was a beautiful time.
