Hur­ri­cane Moses is Back

Jamaica Gleaner - - NEWS -

Hur­ri­cane Matthew mer­ci­fully went by us, and now Hur­ri­cane Moses is back! We will be at the National Arena Satur­day 26th of Novem­ber at 7:00PM, and Sun­day 27th of Novem­ber at 4:00PM.

All tick­ets will be honoured that was for the 1st and 2nd Oc­to­ber. Ev­ery­one should call our Mis­sion­ar­ies of the Poor of­fice 948 6173, 585-2263, 806-1222 and say what show you will at­tend.

We were dis­ap­pointed, Sun­day 2nd Oc­to­ber would have to be post­poned. We had huge crowds com­ing with thou­sands of tick­ets sold for our last two shows. But there it was – Matthew seemed like it could be a ma­jor dis­as­ter; thus we had to pray and ask the Lord for this mer­cies upon our is­land, and put aside our con­cern for our Moses Pro­duc­tion.

Hur­ri­cane Matthew was gath­er­ing power swelling like a mag­nif­i­cent gi­ant ready to de­vour, grow­ing in mag­ni­tude, head­ing in­evitably to­wards Ja­maica. It was the 1st Oc­to­ber, Satur­day, prepa­ra­tions for the hur­ri­cane dis­as­ter was be­ing made all over Kingston. The National Arena was de­clared a place of safety for those seek­ing refuge. Right af­ter we had com­pleted our shows, we pulled down the thou­sands of chairs, the stage, the lights, the sound-equip­ment. The au­thor­i­ties were sen­si­ble and kind in al­low­ing us to com­plete the shows that Satur­day.

Fa­ther Ho Lung and Friends had not been idle how­ever. We have been on tour at the Hal­ton Theater CPCC at the cen­ter of Char­lotte, North Carolina. We were warmly wel­comed by churches and many other lo­cals who had at­tended our pre­vi­ous pro­duc­tions, Praise Him, Isa­iah, Mes­siah.

We had won­der­ful crowds: Lati­nos, Filipinos, In­di­ans, Africans, Amer­i­cans, and a large num­ber of Cau­casian-Amer­i­cans. Mu­sic is truly a lan­guage of love, as Shake­speare said, it is also a univer­sal lan­guage. I was deeply moved: each of shows were full and even over-sold. Young teens, old timers, lit­tle kids, adult peo­ple of ev­ery race, colour, and class came. All were amazed and even in­cred­u­lous.

I felt hon­ored that the Lord had used me once again. I could not be­lieve it ev­ery show was packed. Over 5,000 over­all at­tended Moses. The Lord used me to pro­duce art – mu­sic – drama – I was never trained. I never planned on it. But here it was 45 years of mu­sic for wor­ship, con­certs, mu­si­cal drama, op­eras. Blessed by some amaz­ingly tal­ented peo­ple, graced by the call­ing to serve the poor­est of peo­ple in many na­tions, I make use of all the gifts the Lord has given me, to glo­rify and hon­our Him, and, to help pro­vide food, shel­ter, clothes, medicines, wa­ter and lights.

What a mir­a­cle the Lord has brought! All this mu­sic and orig­i­nal pro­duc­tion, and, the peo­ple who have come for­ward to bring God’s love to the for­got­ten ones! With these funds in North Carolina, we will build a min­istry for the lep­ers in East Ti­mor, one of the poor­est coun­tries in the world. - Fa­ther Hol­ung
