In Nashville there is a new church plant catering to the Asian community in Nashville called the Bridge International Fellowship. This church, planted by my friend Tim Tan and his wife Phemie, meets at Covenant Presbyterian Church in Green Hills. On January 29th, we had the pleasure of leading worship at this church before their Chinese New Year celebration.
It was a very special time for us as we played and shared our testimony and our vision for missionary service. We talked about the path that God has put us on and our love for the Indian people. We then played the Hindi-spoken song, “Kaise’” which was written by our good friend Nikhil George, who serves at Masih Ghar in Southall. This song is very special to us, as it beautifully illustrates the need for relevant Hindi spoke worship music. This is one area that we hope to serve while in Southall. And we are very much looking forward to working with our friend Nikhil, if, God willing, he is still serving in that area by the time we get there.
The worship set was well received and we had got lots of kind words about our music and our ministry.
Afterwards we got to share in the Chinese New year celebration, which featured a dragon dance, a Chinese choir and a group of youth acrobats. It was a very special Sunday for us as we got to see the beauty of another culture in their music, dance and celebration. It was another piece in the mosaic that God has painted on earth, and that is illustrated in Revelation, when we read about worship with all of the tongues tribes and people groups. It is a real blessing to see a vision of that happen today.
We want to thank Tim and Bridge Fellowship for inviting us to play and share on this very special day!
