May 13th, 2019 – Music Therapy and Contemplation

Today has been filled with music! We had music therapy sessions run by Dr. Colin Lee and Emily Carruthers in the morning as well as a drawing activity and some sharing of music and song. We had a sponsored meal at Wilfs (thank you for your generosity!) for lunch, and then a beautiful contemplative music making workshop led by Dr. Gerard Yun. The youth have boundless energy and it was priceless to see them share songs from back home, as well as learn about many other instruments and ways of making music. Finally, we had a delicious meal sponsored by Mount Zion Lutheran Church. You have our deepest gratitude!
