The GU Band Travels to China in the Spring

The Grace University Band is planning to go to China for a two-week concert tour in May 2013! Approximately 27 students and community musicians will tour places including Beijing and Taiyuan with many concerts in Taiyuan schools.  Time is set aside to create personal relationships with the people we encounter.

We have found that building relationships has impact.  With the emergence of China as a world power, we want to represent the United States well to enhance future relations. Although Taiyuan is a city of 3.5 million, it does not attract many tourists or business travelers.  For many, we will be some of the few Americans they may ever encounter. In 2010 we performed for nearly 15,000 people.

PLEASE PRAY FOR US:  Philippians 4:6
Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.

PLEASE CONSIDER GIVING:  Your financial support is needed and appreciated.

The team needs to raise 100% of the costs (approx. $2800 for each person) by March, 2013. If you are able to support us financially, please give at and click on the “Give to Grace” box, and then select the China Tour to apply your donation.  Gifts are  tax-deductible.
