Karenni Choir 

Karenni People ~ Clemmons, NC

July 2011

      God’s plan for this summer’s mission was for Virginia Voices to work with the Karenni People, a shy group originally from Burma. Burmese military dictatorships,  since after World War II, have continually persecutedthese smiling people in order to acquire their land.

     Thus, the Karenni people have fled from their homes inside Burma to live in refugee camps along the Thai-Burma border for many years.  Unable to return to Burma because of the dangers and having no legal status in Thailand, Karenni people have begun migrating to the United States so their children might have hope in a better life.

      This summer through the help of Open Arms Refugee Ministry, Virginia Voices was able to work with 145 children during a five day Vacation Bible School. During the morning, we showered the children with love as we taught the young ones simple Bible songs, played games, and assisted with arts and crafts. In the afternoon, we taught voice and choral music to New Start, a singing group made up of middle and high school Karenni students, while taking the young ones for a dip in the pool. In the evening, New Start performed in conjunction with Virginia Voices at local shelters and churches. Man may have intended harm to these gentle people, but God has intended to bring them to the land of opportunity and unto Himself.

Las Vegas NV 2009

Lost in Vegas ~ Las Vegas, NV

July 2009

      This mission trip opened the eyes of our hearts to the needs of so many hungry for the manna of God's word.   After having worked side-by-side with the teachers at the evening Vacation Bible School for children and adults as well as internationals, we concluded with daily concerts. 

      During the day God opened the door for us  to perform at the secular Reed Whipple Cultural Center for Dance and the West Las Vegas Library Theater of  Performing and Visual Arts Camp for Kids where we had the opportunity to answer questions and share  Christ's impact on Virginia Voices and His enormous love for each of them.  The teachers and students of the  Theater were so taken by our music they wanted to give something back thus they performed a snippet of the  show they were rehearsing. 

      God still had a task for us to accomplish as we arrived at the Las Vegas Rescue  Mission where we worked non-stop in 105 degree heat.  After a full day of serving those less fortunate than us,  we prepared for our evening concert knowing God's work was not yet done.  The Chapel was full of those that  were required to be there and those that chose to be there.  As we began to sing, God was glorified as hearts  were softened, hands were raised, and praises were called out.  We lost count of the number of people that  came forward to rededicate their lives and profess their faith in Christ.

Connie Maxwell Choir

Connie Maxwell Children's Home ~ Greenwood, SC

July 2007

     We were invited to participate in the home's Bible School using music as our major means to connect with children of all ages.  Every morning as Bible stories were told and games played,  it was the faces of the younger children that lit-up with the opportunity to hitch a ride on the Gospel Train.  In the evenings, the

older children that worked during the day would gather around for Bible teaching, fellowship, and music.

      When we were not working directly with the children, the men assisted with cleaning the picnic area and a path  through the woods for a future road.  All the while, the women helped the children's home complete a major  mailing project.  Even though our mission was to the children, as we traveled to and from our destination God  used us to spread His word to His people as we sang in Cracker Barrel, Ryan's Steak House and Applebee's.

Campground Ministry ~ Virginia Beach, VA

Memorial Day to Labor Day

      Our original home mission began in 2002 as a music ministry at the Holiday Trav-L-Park campground in Virginia Beach.  This ministry continues to allow us to bring God's love to the weary traveler or the expectant  vacationer.  Each Sunday morning members of Virginia Voices International volunteer their time and God's gift  to inspire and enhance the campground worship service through music.  Beginning every Memorial Day, when  we honor our military, and continuing throughout the summer, this incredible music ministry concludes with a  Labor Day concert, celebrating God's goodness to His people.
