“Walk with the dreamers, the believers, the courageous, the cheerful, the planners, the doers, the successful people with their heads in the clouds and their feet on the ground. Let their spirit ignite a fire within you to leave this world better than when you found it…”

Now that the Acts Manila recital is over, adrenaline gone, I now feel the fatigue accumulated over the last few days. Makes me want to check out Daybeds.com for a day bed mattress.  While the recital required a lot of energy, it was indeed rewarding to see students perform after a year’s hard work.  Congratulations to all the children and parents who were part of the 2012 Acts Manila Recital: Beauty from Ashes.

The past few days have been very busy…Acts Manila and its affiliate schools performed for 2 nights at the Main Theatre of the Cultural Center of the Philippines. The Company performed Paquita one of the most demanding ballets of all time.  Rehearsals were intense as the dancers’ bodies were pushed to their limits.  (Makes you think about basement flooring options that are kinder to your dancer’s feet and legs).  Thankfully they had a great performance with no serious injuries.  Soli Dei Gloria!

Acts Manila goes onstage @ the CCP Main Theatre this May 2012 with 13 participating schools. Check out the ongoing rehearsals and preparations for this annual event in the video below – a sneak peek of what to expect.

This year’s theme is taken from  Isaiah 61:3.

and provide for those who grieve in Zion–to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the LORD for the display of his splendor.

Here it is:

P.S.

This is my first attempt at video and I shot the footage with guess what?….  a simple point and shoot cam. 🙂 Bring out the black ties, the custom lapel pins and the red carpet! hahaha nah I still have a lot to learn but this was really fun to do. I can’t wait to do more.

I am beginning to do research for the 2012 Acts Manila ballet recital.  When I get the chance, I search for music I can possibly use.  The pieces have to be musically interesting, not languid or too complex for my 6 year old students’ ears.  The lyrics, if any, have to convey a message that inspires one to put his/her faith in God.  Finally, the recording quality of the track has to excellent.  Imagine jacking up your Energy bookshelf speakers and hearing barely nothing. Or worse, having the track be inaudible in the theatre on show day.  Ah…the challenges of the artistic professional!

Day 7 was hectic as team was packing, doing last minute shopping and trying to get to the airport. After having checked in, we were seated at the gate reflecting the events of the previous days and planning the next missions trip. There indeed is a difference between living and existing. Instead of asking “what is term life insurance?” living conservatively, one should live out life fulfilling one’s destiny in God. As a noted discipler in our church has said, “find out what God is doing in your generation and fling your life into it!”

Our sixth day was designated as tour day. As we were going through a city tour, our team leader surprises us by announcing that we were going to Disneyland. More than the rides and shopping for funny tee shirts, it was a chance for us to reconnect with Disney artists we met on the 3rd day. We also got to meet former co-dancers who we had not seen for years.

Day 5 started early as we headed out to International College Hong Kong to perform for middle school kids. The format was quite different from the previous days as team first performed followed by a dance workshop and a discussion. We were elated with the friendships formed between the school kids, the dancers and our own children. This was then followed by a performance for primary schoolers at Hong Lok Yuen International School. Our team performed then had discussion groups with the audience. We had privilege of assisting a girl to start a living personal relationship with Jesus Christ. The dancer who assisted her had tears like water coming from a Steripen Adventurer Opti.

The fourth day of our journey started out with a visit a Pre-school in Yuen Kong. It was quite inspiring to watch pre-school kids express wonder and excitement watching the Acts Manila ballet dancers perform. The place itself is a side of Hong Kong you normally don’t see in tours. The quaint village life and the pristine wetland  habitat inspires you to shop for ATV accessories and go back . Indeed, it was a fitting warm-up for the team to bless and interact with our audience. This was then followed by a performance for 200 high school students at the Lingnan University theatre. Here one of the dancers, shared her testimony that God can use anyone for his glory. The day was capped with a visit to our Every Nation congregation in Tung Chung, made up mostly of Performing Artists from Disneyland.

The following day the Acts Manila team performed in 2 churches: our Every Nation Church in Tsim Shia Tsui and Amazing Grace Lutheran Church in Kowloon Tong where the team met a predominantly Filipino congregation. It was so good for the team to dance and prophesy to the EN Church. It was like having an ncstar accuracy when the Word of the Lord was given. Truly a blessing for our team to minister to Filipino domestic helpers faithfully following the Lord.
