Dav and I were talking over lunch yesterday, and we found out that share the same heartbeat for outreach. In hope to try something new, we thought of a crazy idea (well, at least we thought it was quite crazy) to “busk” in town. Well to put it simply, it’s just singing in town to bless the souls who might pass us by. Needless to say, we got really excited and Dav almost wanted to go to town as soon as we ended our conversation! But we decided to rally some people to try this together. We tried to rally and manage to rally 2 other persons, Fen (she brought Pam) and Laine, who were surprisingly excited about the idea too! (Thank God for people who are easily excitable!)
Five people tried.
So with that crazy idea and five crazy people, we met for dinner at Far East Plaza, prayed, and set off to a place we didn’t know where. I’m serious. We didn’t know where to go, only knew what we wanted to do. We just walked and walked and walked and walked (it kinda felt like when God called Abraham to go and he didn’t know where to go but went anyway. Haha)…. And a peculiar sight made us end up outside Taka – we saw three huge Samoyeds that are really beautiful! So that caught our attention and we decided to go towards that group of people there.
We tried to settle down at an area near them and tried to start something but it all felt so awkward. Maybe because we really didn’t know what to expect and as Singaporean as we are, we are very used to structure. So a freestyle thing wasn’t really our style.. But we went ahead anyway.
So Laine and I decided to just not waste anymore time and go to the dog owners and strike a conversation with them. A conversation regarding their dogs of course~ we managed to hold a conversation with them revolving around their dogs for almost 1.5h! There were so many moments we tried to bring in the gospel but it just didn’t feel right 😦 but thank God that Fen and Pam managed to share the gospel with the male owner! And we managed to extend an invitation to them to come to Watchnight tomorrow. So praying that God reveals himself to them tonight and bring them to watchnight tmr! 🙂
The couple left at about 10pm, and we continued hanging around to sing some songs for another 20 minutes, then we decided to end of the night by blessing an Indian family with “Feliz Navidad”. It was quite an interesting experience just to bless their souls with a simple song, and in hope that they will catch a glimpse of God’s goodness through that.
Now we sharpen.
We’ve rallied, we’ve tried, now it’s time to sharpen the idea. Not sure how we’re gonna sharpen it yet but we’re planning to do it again next Thursday! Join us at the big space outside Takashimaya if you’re free and you have a heart for Jesus! 🙂
