Jem asked us to send in our visions to him, so why not let me share mine here? After all it'd make another mark in my life.
HELLO JOKER JEM, sorry if I'm the latest but I really procrastinated and I repent for that.
currently, my vision is (or was) to build strong, skillful and biblical musicians to train strong, skillful and biblical musicians. However, apparently only Kaiwen turned out well, if you really considered him as a disciple as well.
I'll probably change my vision when I go down under, because I really don't think I can build any other musicians anymore that side. however, after all I am the FIRST YWAMmer to go international. As such I already discussed with Yao what I would do before I leave. I've planned to:
1. conduct an electric guitar workshop to discuss issues such as good tone, how to improvise, playing with different parts, and to inspire (indirectly fulfilling vision)
2. vomit out everything kaiwen needs to know, basically train him to train others (fulfills vision)
3. connect chris and kaiwen together as they'll be working together next time, and kaiwen can influence chris as well
4. continue to find out about joshua
5. source for younger, stronger musicians
Well, the personal vision for me in the long run, as I embark on my studies and then my career, would probably be to practice the gift of healing on those who are burdened, weak in health and spirit, so that I may be able to show the love of God through me. Sounds kinda cool huh?
I dunno what to expect when I get there, whether I would join a small church or a big one. and I wouldn’t know my schedule over there. as such I have no plans yet with regards to music ministry when I get to sydney. however, I plan to start building a network of friends and hopefully honing my faded, unpracticed pastoral skills. hopefully God has called me there to build the local church, by going back to the basics of evangelism. of course my musical skills would be put into practice.
so in conclusion, I'm afraid I can't join u guys on all that dreams of playing in indoor stadium, or a music school because I think my focus has changed pretty much. I won't see myself doing what I have done in the past 3 years when I get to sydney. I think it'll be more of "back to the basics" kind of thingy. but who knows, maybe I'm there to influence the whole music scene of down under. after all, playing so many musical instruments could finally have been put to great use?
And to continue from my last post, I'll just sum it all up into one very overused sentence:
God doesn't call the qualified. He qualifies the called.
And it so happens to be my car's bumper sticker! Coolness right? I tell you all of them copied that quote after seeing it.
So oh well I think I can't escape this calling, but it's my choice to follow it. 6 years of challenges await in Uni, probably like 40 years of challenges await in the hospital, and out of these 40 years, probably 10 years in further studies? I dunno...but all I know is I'm excited to embark on this new journey!
And so happening! Kai lun from BMT will be joining me in this 6 year programme overseas! I have a MATE to G'DAY with!
