STORIES & TESTIMONIES
The Matsiko World Orphan Choirs have impacted people across the US and around the world!
The show was fantastic and
the children were so lovable, talented and well disciplined. We would definitely welcome them
back next time they are in
Tappan Zee Manor
We had a great time hosting
the choir this weekend. They were
polite, intelligent and sweet kids
as well as amazing singers! They
brought a great energy to
Riverfront Family Church
Crooked Creek Elementary
I also wanted to sing the praises about the children and ICN. It was such a pleasure to have them with us. All were very respectful, kind, eager to help and very thankful. It was a wonderful experience for all of us and would like to do it again.
You are providing an excellent example of how people around the whole globe can recognize the value of various cultures. Even more importantly, you are witnesses the the shared methods of expression that motivate your dancing and joy!
It was absolutely a wonderful program
that we were thrilled to sponsor. This program was
the first in what we hope will be a concert series
program which the church has just started. To say that we
couldn't havechosen a better inaugural event for our series is
to say much too little. It was really the BEST! It was so well received and it brought such joy to the audience that I am certain were you
to return we would fill the house. The children were delightful
and the leaders gracious and professional. Please consider
us if you return to the East Coast again. We would
love to have you back!

Thank you to the Matisko children and
Don and Jennie and the rest of the organization for
coming to tiny, little Delaware and spreading the "hope"
that is Matsiko to our area. And most especially, thank you to
the children. I want their energy and enthusiasm! I want the
world to have their joy. I want the world to know their
gratefulness. They give hope to a world that is divided and
in turmoil. They give me hope and they gave every soul in that
church last night hope. I pray that their energy left with
every person last night and spreads
throughout the area.
St. John the Baptist - Holy Angels Parish
Truly it was our pleasure to have these sweet, polite children! My family was blessed in many ways this past
weekend. It was very emotional saying good bye to them. May God bless them & keep them safe during their incredible journey. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
We are kind of shocked and processing
the experience of love and joy that God brought to our home through your
ministry! We don't need more time to recognize a Holy Spirit tug or conviction to come alongside your organization and help by sharing any resources/gifts God has blessed us with.
I saw you today performing in our gym. My heart was overflowing and I was moved to tears. Your beautiful music, courage and sharing are boundless. I bought your CD and a bracelet. I was privileged to shake many of your hands. I also got a hug from the young man who started the La Bamba song! You all are an inspiration for what you have overcome and what you are doing. Keep on!
Recently the choir came to my school. I was expecting to fake clap, but when the show started and I saw the kids saying "Hi" to people and smiling, I LOVED it! After every song, I stood up and clapped loud and proud. My hands turned red. I was wowed about what these kids could do. They touched my heart.
Ransom Everglades Middle School
We so enjoyed getting to know the staff
and thedelightfully warm and fun-loving kids in
your choir thispast weekend. We'll be praying for them
along their journey, knowing that the Holy Spirit's timing
and guidance is a rich source of assurance and strength.
What a beautiful expressionof Christ'slove comes through
those kids songs and faces! It blessesus to know them.
Matsiko is truly like havingthe mission field visit us
and what an amazing and unusual experience
The kids were awesome!
There were lots of smiles on my resident’s faces. That always makes me happy. The kids were so polite. It was a pleasure to have them and hope they will be able to come
again in the future.

We just complete a 3 day visit from
your choir. The visit was magical.
The children were polite, respectful, friendly
and talented. The adult supervisors were excellent
and everyone both choir and congregation
seems to really enjoy the visit--especially since
all arrangements were last minute.
Covenant United Methodist Church
I was the only person working when your group came through Historic Fort Wayne yesterday. I admittedly was hesitant to give a tour to such a large group by myself, yet both students and chaperones were extremely polite, respectful, and asked some of the best questions I had all week. Being a former member of Fort Wayne Children's Choir for 10 years, it was special in many ways to be able to help out another choir on tour as many others had done for me in the past. Please pass my compliments on to all and best of luck to your organization!
