WIST hosts 5th annual Christmas production

first_imgWorship In Spirit and In Truth (WIST) Ministries International Inc ushered in its fifth annual Christmas production held under the theme “BEHOLD” at the National Cultural Centre (NCC) on Saturday.Some of the dancers who participated in the “BEHOLD” event at the National Cultural Centre (NCC) on SaturdayThis year’s theme emphasises Christ, as the gift of salvation, healing, deliverance and a symbol of hope for all mankind. The event did not disappoint as it captivated the audience through song, dance, drama, and poetry. What made the evening more spectacular was the genuineness of the props and the message, which was clear as crystal and had the audience on the edge of their seats, as the WIST dance ministry definitely topped their performance from last year. The audience was treated to different genres of Christmas music as the programme reflected diverse cultures. The audience screamed and applauded as Sandia Ramnarine, the founder of WIST, danced to the popular song “No Longer A Slave To Sin” as she moved elegantly and gracefully across the stage, using her performance to extract and execute every emotion within the song. The patrons could be seen dancing and clapping along to each and every beat.Speaking with Guyana Times, Ramnarine said, “We as a committee believe that there are a lot of people out there doing significant charity work and having an event like this can be twofold: we can provide a platform for our students so they can develop their skills but parallel to that we can actually support a charity. Even if it’s just financially, but we can cause people to be aware of the work of that charity and hopefully it can influence other organisations to render support as this year we have chosen the Cheshire Home.”She went on to state that in terms of the 2019 show ,they would touch on a different side of the Christmas story as it can never be overdone and would include the death of Jesus.As the curtains came down on the show, the WIST founder thanked the audience for coming out to the event and reminded them that it was a success only because of the collective effort of everyone. This event was sponsored by NEW GPC, Silvie’s Variety Store and other local businesses. (Timothy Jaikarran)last_img
