One Day All The Soldiers Will Go Home

Music School was this week! From 8:00am to 8:30pm we were at the church with 185 other people, learning music and singing songs. I got home last night around 11:30! It was a wonderful week. The advanced music reading class I was in learned the Hallelujah Chorus, and I'll have another post just for that another day. I believe it was our best school yet. On the last night (which was last night) we had 355 people in our church. Most of them were singing, but there were so many there to just listen. It was amazing! 

The Cleghorn family has been to this school for four years now, and they've been at our church lot during these years. They're missionaries to Indonesia, and they'll be leaving sometime this fall. It's hard to think about them leaving because they've become so special to my family and our church, but I know they'll do a wonderful work in Borneo. Please pray for them as they move to another country to serve the Lord!

They sang this song Wednesday night, and it was requested by several people that they sing it again on Friday night. I got chill bumps both times they sang it. Please listen to the words, this is a beautiful song and I think you'll enjoy it just as much as we all did.

  2. Thank you for sharing the beautiful song. Can't believe it's been a year since I was in the US! Just last year I was able to enjoy Music school.

    Had a bit of our own "Music School". The Christian school I went to & will work at sang the ENTIRE Handle's Messiah....and the Hallelujah Chorus is SOOOO GRAND!


    1. I love that song so much I just had to share it, I'm glad you enjoyed it too! :)

      Bro. David wants to make the Hallelujah Chorus an annual song at Music School, and hopefully add more pieces from the Messiah throughout the years. It was SO much fun to sing!!

  3. We've been listening to it over and over again!
