A Night Of Hope says
A rare opportunity to hear the inspirational story of a former Ugandan child soldier, with performances by award-winning Australian singer/songwriter, Levi McGrath.

Grace Arach and Levi McGrath will share A Night of Hope in Mansfield at the Broadwater Road Uniting Church on
Saturday 28 November, 2015. This is a free stand-alone event and the community is invited to join an evening of
conversation, music and hope.

A Night of Hope will tour Queensland and New South Wales sharing the inspirational story of former Ugandan child
soldier, Grace Arach, who was abducted into the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) at the age of 12. After enduring the
horrors of war and becoming a child bride to a leader of the LRA, Grace made her dramatic escape and found refuge
at a World Vision Child Soldier Rehabilitation Centre in Uganda.

In 2009, Levi McGrath and his wife Megan spent six life-changing months working with former child soldiers in
Uganda through World Vision. Meeting Grace in Uganda has greatly impacted his life and music. Levi will share the
stage with Grace and perform songs written about his time working at the Child Soldier Rehabilitation Centre.

“The Night of Hope Tour will move you deeply and reveal the harrowing realities facing children affected by war,”
Levi said. “I'm proud to be sharing my music alongside Grace – a remarkable woman with a powerful story of
courage in the face of extreme adversity."

Levi McGrath is an independent singer/songwriter, Artist Partner for World Vision Australia, and Assistant Musical
Director of choirs for the disadvantaged and marginalised.
Levi believes there is much work to be done and music to be made, to help turn the tide of poverty, apathy and
human suffering.

“I'm really excited to share a message of hope through my experiences working with child soldiers in Uganda,” he
said. “Grace's gripping story of survival and recovery from life as a child soldier will give Australians a rare glimpse
into a unique area of World Vision's life-changing work.”

A Night of Hope events will kick-off in Queensland on Thursday 26th November, 2015 and travel to nine cities sharing
their stories of survival, hope and forgiveness. The tour will travel through NSW and conclude in Goulburn on 6th
December, 2015.
