Joyful Noise Festival

Joyful Noise (15)

Joyful Noise (55)Joyful Noise (57)Last Saturday night we held one of my favorite events of the year: the Joyful Noise Music Festival. The festival is sponsored by the Guam Ministerial Association and PIU to help build unity by bringing the churches of the island together for worship and fellowship. This year we had 12 churches participate with our host, the Abundant Life Church. As usual, the festival highlighted many different worship styles and we had more pie and ice cream than we could eat. In addition PIU received a generous offering for student scholarships and dorm improvements. Thank you so much GMA and churches of Guam!

The Marshallese United Church joined us for the first time, singing in their own language. All we can say to their performance is “One More Time!”
