Recent Events: Concerts, FOP, Youth Sunday

Haven’t been blogging lately, was quite busy. well there were a series of concerts recently

Reuben Morgan
Firstly, Reuben Morgan came to Singapore to chc, it was not bad, though the previous one at Emmanuel Assembly was longer and better. He sang the latest “Mighty to Save” and various other older songs. The extended deliverance service by the preacher mike connell was an eye-opener. there was mass prayer and calls.

Festival Of Praise 2006
Then, there was of course, FOP in the following weekend just before national day. Went on friday with kevin and sunday with church people. This year, don moen and christian city church came. not as exciting as last year with hillsong and delirious, but nevertheless, it was good and refreshing. don moen did some very good oldies while ccc rocked the arena. chc brought their giant LED screen which made the two side projectors pretty useless. the moving head lights were as usual quite professionally programmed, wished my church has them =p

Day of His Power Prayer-Concert
On National Day eve, lovesingapore churches gathered together at indoor stadium (again) to pray for the nation and celebrate our 41th birthday. it was quite interesting, the videos and all, although the setup of the stage, lights and camreas were not as professionally done as FOP. however, the service and prayers were good.

Bye AFS, Hello Tengah
The friday after national day was my first day at TAB. The place is quite old and run-down, like some ww2 site! haha. And it is super far from my house too, about 1.5hours and $3 worth per trip. Still considering whether I should stay-in though. I still have a few months of course there before I’m posted to sqn. I do not fly aircrafts, but make aircrafts fly.

Planet Shakers Concert
Friday went to PS with chris dyl, and elisha, ben they all were there too. it was a blast! it was actually themed as ultraviolet – youth party harvest weekend. I loved the visualisation screens at the back of the stage. There were in fact 6 screens on stage, 2 cameras, 3 visualisations and 1 switching between cameras and visualisations. The sound and lights were pretty cool, and planet shakers rocked the expo hall with their latest hits ‘majesty’ ‘redeemer’ and some older ones like ‘always and forever’. however, the service was a bit short, they sang about 7 songs then testimony time, perhaps they mentioned they had jet lag. wished it was longer. people asked for encore but they didn’t respond.

Youth Leaders Meeting
We had a meeting with all the leaders and coordinators at ps whit’s house. it was a series of presentations for the year 2007. as a media coordinator, i was tasked to think and budget for media ministry in YM for next year. it was challenging, and it was intriguing to see all the big plans by the various leaders. I pray that 2007 will be an even greater year for us.

Youth Sunday
The following weekend was Youth Sunday! Throughout the whole of the past 1.5 weeks, I’ve been at home 3 hours every weeknight to rush through the video to be screened on Youth Sunday as a promotional video for YM. So much so that I could not have time to finish the photo montage idea, and josh jr’s com crashed hence cannot help me. You can download the video here. Let me know what you think of it!

Youth Sunday itself was great. Joshua and band led worship after a short introductory video, followed by a mini-offering sermon by Jingxian, then my video, then Alex’s promotion and testimonies by Bryan’s Mum and Ben’s Dad, prayer for all the youths, and finally ps Whitley’s word. I was running around taking photos and videos, together with xavier, benjamin and jacintha, and also guiding mylene on the easislides program. And the part 2 in the afternoon was, of course, BF2 with jere dyl chris and jared.
