This Video of Children Playing “O Holy Night” is Exactly What You Need Today

We hope you’ll smile (but we can’t promise you won’t also get a little choked up) when you watch these sponsored children and youth playing “O Holy Night.”

The hardworking musicians in the video live in poverty in Guatemala. But they have the opportunity to study music and access instruments thanks to a special program their churches started for young people in Compassion’s program.

Enjoy this beautiful video, which the students performed in 2019 especially for sponsors to see!

On behalf of these talented music students and the more than 2 million young people in Compassion’s program all around the world, MERRY CHRISTMAS!

    Praise the Lord, for that “holy night” when our Savior was born, and for the children. May the Lord bless them with his Spirit to share the good news. What a wonderful, inspiring way to start my morning. I sat and rejoiced as the tears flowed. Our Redeemer lives and will soon return!!!! Until then let us be about the Father’s business. Merry Christmas!
