Just yesterday, Student fellowship volunteered as stewards in a concert by Stream of Praise.An evangelistic outreach project organised by my church. Stream of Praise consists of a group of Chinese singers travelled all the way from USA to perform. They're having a British tour and Manchester is one of their stops. They had travelled to so many countries, and from one of the video showed when they were in Hong Kong, it seems this team is kinda well-known. Almost 4000 people turned up in all 6 concerts held there. The so called Chinese version Planet Shakers i guess:) The gospel is spreading everywhere!
Quite a lot of people turned up for this concert:) Kinda weird to see so many Chinese in Manchester. Muakakak..and my mandarin was in good use:)
Stream of Praise, worship CDs and DVDs! The songs are quite nice! All composed by themselves! They have their own studios in USA!
And Us! The stewards:) Greet everybody with a SMILE! That's our motto that night!
Just something to share. There was one day, I got nothing to do in the afternoon after my GP posting in the morning, so i decided to go in hospital to take a history from any patient. None of the patients in the firm i'm attached to was free, so instead of going home n did nothing, I wandered a while in the hospital and a while later, i ended up in a trauma ward which I have never been to. I walked in, not knowing anybody and later spotted an old lady smiling at me and greeted me 'Good Afternoon'. Opportunity i thought! Yup, i went forward and introduce myself, and asked her permission to take a history from her. As we talked, she told me she goes to church every Sunday and I told her I do too. I told her I'm from Malaysia and she grabbed hold of my hands, with a big smile, saying 'welcome to Manchester, Love'. I'm so touched, she then continue telling me that Manchester is a nice place and MRI(the hospital i'm based) is a top-class hospital for you to be trained as a doctor. I nodded my head and agreed with her. Just as i was about to leave, she said' God bless you'! And i replied back the same...How I ended meeting this old lady was still a mystery. But deep in me, I know God has put this old pleasant lady to tell me that He has put me in a GREAT place, which is Manchester. I always wonder why God send me to Manchester when my first choice is to go Australia, and based in MRI where NOT a single IMU seniors is here. MRI has always been the highly demanded teaching hospital by the Manchester students because it's based in the city centre itself, whereas the other 3 hospitals are away from the city. Why here, Why me? I'm still on this challenging journey to find out my purpose here.
