Ribera Arts Review – December 31, 2011

Musical Christ story

The story of Christ was told in an amazing musical presentation by five talented musicians at the Christmas Eve and Christmas Day services of the Lake Chapala Baptist Church.

The talents were those of Eric Callis on guitar, Patrick Dumouchel, vocals and percussion; Bob Hendrick, vocals, mandolin, banjo and steel guitar; Judy Hendrick, vocals and keyboard and eight-year-old Miguel Nguyen, vocals and percussion.

Nguyen captivated the congregation with his presentation of the entire genealogy of Matthew, Chapter 1.
