"Shadows" by Gustaff BesunguDear friends!

What nurtures your soul? What makes your heart tender? Prayer, music, fellowship, tea poured in peace, homemade banana bread baked with love and shared with a smile? Whatever the answer might be, sharing music and prayers with friends gets us all closer to the Creator.

I invite you and your loves ones on Friday, November 2nd, at 7:30 pm, to a very special Musical Prayer Station with Gustaff Besungu who will present songs and music with the African Drum (Djembe), story telling and traditional dance from Cameroon – West Africa.

He has performed with the Baha’i World Centre Choir (Haifa, Israel), Alma-Latina (Norman, Oklahoma), The Light Combo (An Acoustic trio in Oklahoma), and with many other musical groups and individuals.
