Seven or eight years ago, I was with Water For Life. Having 'my own' mission with buildings where I could minister in music and education was just a dream, but I shared the dream and ASAPH Teaching Ministry was born.
Not long ago, a brass band was just a dream as well. It's now a reality.
Here are a few more dreams that may one day be reality. I share these ideas, and leave them in the hands of Almighty God. His will be done!
A TRAVELING BAND
The ASAPH Brass Band is developing. Our concert program is attractive and powerful. We continue to share it locally, but dream of being able to move around the island of Haiti to share the program in places out of our reach currently. With funding for transportation and housing, we could travel to churches in communities where the music would reach new ears and the message would reach new hearts.
The ASAPH Brass Band...His music...His message...His glory.
BASKETBALL COURT/PICKLEBALL COURT/CONCERT VENUE
Erntz and I have recently aquired the piece of land right next to ASAPH Teaching Center. He has plans for the land, but a small part of it could be available for a project I'd love to see. A simple slab of concrete could become a small basketball court, volleyball court, badminton court, pickleball court. The land has a natural rise that could be used as 'seating' for the court. AND that same space could be used for evening concerts where people can sit on the slab and hear music...like a brass band.
Erntz dreams of having a restaurant that would function on weekends and special occasions...like concerts or sports tournaments. It would be connected to the court and right next door to ASAPH Teaching Center.
As we say in Haiti : "Bondye konnen" (God knows whether it will happen or not.)
I grew up playing with my family. I was the youngest of six siblings. We played in the yard. We played in the house. We played miniature golf. We bowled.
It was all part of growing, and we did so much of it together.
I think miniature golf is a great way for families to play together : parents, children, grandparents. Everyone can putt!
I believe a homemade, cement, miniature golf course could be built in PBO for very little money. It would create a family-friendly activity. It could teach Biblical lessons with themed holes. AND, it might create a salary for the person in charge of it. It's a WIN WIN WIN situation.
