James 1:27 states, ”Religion that is pure and undefiled before God the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction…”(ESV). The person on the other end of the line was Fabi Harris. She had heard about the choir from her sister, CCOT’s own Nadia White. Fabi Harris began to explain how she and some friends had started working with an orphanage in Uganda.
