For the celebrities at Artistes Christian Fellowship or ACF, they are not about the glitz and glamour; they are about spreading God’s love and joy… and so they did with a big bang-Love from the Stars 2015 on 4th and 6th of December at Suntec City Convention Hall Six.
The seething mass of people in orderly queue started forming outside Suntec City Convention Hall Six. Excited chatter filled the level and smiles were on all the faces.
The seats were filled up in a twinkle and Pastor Lawrence Khong started the night with his magical performances. The hall lighted with beautiful little sparkle in tune with Pastor Khong’s performance and we were transported into a galaxy of stars.
We went from whimsical to vibrant as the fun loving international team of celebrities from ACF bounced on stage and gave us “ Shine for Love” After getting our hearts pumped up, our feet started getting “busy” as we tapped dance to a rock and roll song “袮爱的大能. The tune was taken to a slow ballad and our spirits were lifted up and taken on a “flight journey” as we swayed our hands and sang to 我要飞翔。
Move aside Psy! Here comes ACF’s 方舟颂！With zany dance steps to the fast beat song, we felt constrained in our little limited space and to the delight of all, the audiences were invited to the open area right below the stage to dance with the celebs of ACF! The fun vibes were so strong that snoopy, elves and cute furry animals decided to join the audiences in their midst too.
As the audiences were seated back, the lights dimed off and a video clip,
“To Love one another” “你们要彼此相爱” was shown. The clip surprised us with moments of poignancy and happiness. It also left me pondering on the following question: “am I able to love or help a total stranger without a single thought of the deed being reciprocated?”
Up next was 方钟桦 ‘s performance of the song titled “一定是袮” and it got the lady next to me teary-eyed as the lyrics simply reflects the greatness of God!
The message of God’s Love was further elaborated through a stage performance in a retro-cabaret setting, starring Moses Lim and Irene Ang. They definitely tickled the audiences with their antics and the experience was heighten up with the following artistes performing evergreen oldies …
Can’ Buy Me Love- Noah Yap, Bunz, Maxi Lim and Wang Wei Liang
My Way – 叶佩芬 Dawn Yip
望春风- 林安咛 Amy Lim
卡门- 夏蕙 XiaHui, 梅兰 MeiLan
半斤八两- 孙晓芸、 施金莲、 郭贤华、 巫奇 Allan Moo
The entire retro scene came to a completion with veteran celebrity, 姚炜 taking center stage by giving the audience her tearful testimonial on God’s love and mercy for her roller coaster life as a celebrity and by means of roller coaster, she meant having fame and fortune at her peak and indulgence in gambling, thought of suicidal and having a wrecked marriage and family life when she was at her lowest.
After which came a medley of performances by
I can Fly -汤小康
因为有爱 – 林安咛, 黄秀玲
爱就准备好 – 饶燕婷, 薇薇, 王雪晶, KouGee
Performances aside, more heartwrenching testimonials were given by 陈美光 胡菽贤, 李雪环, 王昌黎, 刘冠霖, 陈滢洁, 杨光 and 舒方. The testimonials given by all reminded me of a simple verse from the bible- FAITH. It does not make things easy, it makes them possible Luke 1:37.
“爱他／她就好好说话”a short skit by 洪乙心, 宏荣, 亮玭, 郭贤华 and 李美莲 reflects the various factors that stirs up a commotion between married couples. Money, priorities, anger and perhaps even simple action such switching of the button on the remote controller might just set on the “time bomb” of our better half!
Are quarrels and disagreements a natural part of marriage? There might be certain truth to the above as no two people can read the situation similarly. Although quarrels and disagreements might appear to come in a package called marriage, but they weren’t designed so in God’s plan and so he sent his angels -黄国伦 and 寇乃馨 to share their testimonials on their marriage life and the key to their marriage?
“Prayers before speech！”
寇乃馨’s “别对你爱的人飚狠话” https://youtu.be/Cwc6hGpARtI
The performance finale was another illusion by Pastor Khong. Using a lamp, he magically illustrates the importance of God in our life. With that there was a call for conversion and a vibrant crowd of audiences started to fill the empty area below the stage to receive Christ in their life.
With Christmas round the corner, the performances ended on a joyous note of “Feliz Navidad.”
Although it’s a wrap for Love from the stars 2015, it marks the beginning of wonderful journey with God for our brother and sisters in Christ who have recently received Christ in their lives. Here’s a poem for all to remember that we are not alone on life’s journey…
Footprints in the Sand by Mary Stevenson
One night I dreamed a dream.
As I was walking along the beach with my Lord.
Across the dark sky flashed scenes from my life.
For each scene, I noticed two sets of footprints in the sand,
One belonging to me and one to my Lord.
After the last scene of my life flashed before me,
I looked back at the footprints in the sand.
I noticed that at many times along the path of my life,
especially at the very lowest and saddest times,
there was only one set of footprints.
This really troubled me, so I asked the Lord about it.
“Lord, you said once I decided to follow you,
You’d walk with me all the way.
But I noticed that during the saddest and most troublesome times of my life,
there was only one set of footprints.
I don’t understand why, when I needed You the most, You would leave me.”
He whispered, “My precious child, I love you and will never leave you
Never, ever, during your trials and testings.
When you saw only one set of footprints,
It was then that I carried you.
Heartfelt thanks go out to all at ACF for such a brilliant stage performance and for having WAOblog.Asia and IAmYuki.com as the official social media channels for “Love from the Stars 2015”
Be sure to be on purchasesildenafil the look out for more exciting events from ACF in 2016!
