In Egypt the school and university summer holidays last four months, and most students don’t have any plans or ideas how to use this free time wisely. At our World Outreach International vocational training centre, we decided to hold some classes whereby students could learn and develop skills in areas of their interest. Music is a very popular summer class. Unfortunately the Egyptian education system does not place much emphasis on music. This past summer we had 35 students learning to play the keyboard and guitar. As the holiday time drew to a close, the children were playing well; they were even playing some hymns, much to the delight of their parents. It is our vision to train up a generation of worship leaders to lead God-glorifying worship in their respective local churches.
