In this camp, I especially enjoyed the training in the morning. Most of the messages ars already familiar to me and it's not my first time to listen to it. However, if I don't keep working out those messages, they will be still not beneficial to me. So those messages are good reminders to me. May Lord bless me to work them out stably. On the other hand, I remembered Samuel taught us how to entrust the day to the Lord and I could tell the Lord clearly about what I wanted from Him.
Also, there were many my “first times” during this camp, my first time to join the meeting at Ngau Tau Kok, my first time to be in Hong Kong music team, my first time to stay over at Kwai Fong meeting place, etc. Moreover, I enjoyed my personal time with the Lord during the camp. I found a nice place to draw near to Him. In addition, I am glad to know more brothers and sisters from different locations. I really see this is truly a one family no matter where we are from.
In this camp, I am glad to be part of the music ministry team. Although I am not a master in the music, and I am better to sing in choir than solo, I feel that when I practice more, I think I can do it one day. It is so precious our songs having so much deeper and deeper truth in them. May the Lord use singing and worship help us to satisfied Him. May the Lord help us to glorify Him and bring people back to Him.
It was a great experience in my life to join this music camp. I feel so blessed to participate in the camp. I can see the will of God about the tabernacle of David through singing and worship. This is truly what God wants that we can satisfy and glorify Him.
I am happy to meet so many talented brothers and sisters all around the world with the same vision. I am so touched by seeing all brothers and sisters working together to perform a song. During the time of figuring out how to sing a hymn better, we gave our opinions and co-work together. Oh, what a harmonic picture! We had the same heart to finish His will through sing and worship. I can see in the near future, our church can reach different cities and villages through the music team. It can bring many souls to His heart with a pure Biblical truth.
I give thanks that I was able to join the Hong Kong music camp. This is my first time to join because I want the Lord to open my eyes to see what he wants me to learn.
Truly, He wants me to know that shouting for joy is the key to overcome all my weakness. I remembered when brother Lion shared about shouting for joy, it really hit my needs. He mentioned that when you are not in good mood or feel emotional, you need to shout for joy.
Another point was that brother Fish really encouraged brothers and sisters to sing songs while they were playing instruments. He mentioned about the importance of singing songs. When David was in trouble or facing difficulties, he relied on God and sang songs to overcome his environment. This is a good lesson to learn when you face hardship, you should rely on Him right away. You can sing songs to Him to overcome it.
In the 20 years that I have believed in God, the hymns among us have brought happiness and great benefits to me and to my family. The truths in our hymns bring us closer to God, His love, and an understanding of the Lord's love; for our beautiful, true Beloved and the love of Abba. The greatness, the limitlessness, the beauty, and the heart of God are expressed through music. I thank God for this music camp. I thank Him for being here, for His movement, and showing us in clarity and certainty what He wants to do. Through music we can establish many churches after God’s heart in the world. Music will help to bring people into the house of God, and into the heart of the Lord. We sing every day to worship, to live out the sweetest and happiest day of God's life. We are deeply touched by our part in God's will. Looking forward to the next Music Camp Reunion!
As the second time joining this music camp, it was still an eye-opening experience for me. I really treasure more oversea brothers and sisters from different places can partake this time. Not only we were here for the music, but more importantly, we pursue in spirit to help us enter deeper into the precious truths through the hymns, pursuit and worship.
The morning pursuit was a great reminder that not only we should be skillful in music, but we must be skillful in spirit. The contents helped remind and fine tune the essence of my sweet daily living with the Lord and Abba, especially walking out the “4-long, 1-short, 1-listening” throughout the day. The evening messages shared by brother Fish helped me to see the fuller picture of what the Lord’s commission for us in the music ministry. Indeed the Lord chose us to take up the essence of David’s tabernacle - to sing and worship, and we must know our role in His calling on us in order to respond to Him and spread His purpose accordingly.
The concert indeed was the pinnacle of the music camp. All the recent truths shared by brother Fish were enhanced by the presentations of the selected hymns from Hymnals 17 and 18. Through the presentation of the hymns, embedding brother Fish’s sharing of the hymns’ background and truths, helped me to enter the truths even more quicker and deeper. I can enjoy more of the truths, such as the greatest distance, yet the closest union between the Lord and I, Abba’s love of creations, His mercy and lovingkindness on our personal walks of life with Him and more. I really see how the infinite One continues to reveal His heart and will towards us.
This camp made me treasure our commission through the precious hymns we have and the way we pursue and making music together. First, I pray I can firm my place in this glorious music work, walk it out, and sing through the world to finish His will together!
