Gospel Show Supports Guatemala Community
On Friday March 22, Music Express performed their highly inspirational Gospel show at St. John the Evangelist parish in Woodslee, Ontario. This was a benefit show to raise funds to pay off a tractor that the parish purchased to support the poverty stricken community of Triunfo, Guatemala. This benefit performance raised over $4,000 through ticket sales and sponsorship assistance from the communities “first farming families”.

Guatemala Relief Thank You Letter
April 1, 2002
To All the Members of the Music Express;
We would like to send our sincerest gratitude to each and every one of you. The concert that you performed on March 22 at St. John’s Church was a wonderful success in so many ways. The music was superb, and the gifts of voice and musical talent will be remembered forever. The spirit that you created in our Church was very special, as you brought along the audience in praise and glory of our Lord. We thank you especially for that.
It was also successful in assisting us to realize our goal of paying off the tractor loan. This is a huge accomplishment for our committee and gives us new hope to continue our work for the many other needs that we are aware of in the village of Triunfo.
Please accept this small token of our appreciation. May it be a reminder of your part in achieving the first step in our efforts to help our sisters and brothers in Guatemala.
We thank God for you, and pray that he will continue to bless you abundantly.
St. John’s Guatemala Relief Committee
