The ASAPH Brass Band was live on Facebook this past Friday. That was a great experience. I have done ASAPH concerts where I show video of the band. I have posted video recordings, but the live event was quite a success. We had church members from CLC tuned in. We had former WFL missionaries tuned in. It was exciting for a band that has yet no play 100 miles from home.
We scheduled the event for a small family get-together at my mom's place. They were watching and listening as we played a few songs. The others responded to a message I had posted that same day. Who knew it would be of interest to so many people?
Haitians here in town and far away tuned in to watch the video. We watched the numbers go from 3 to 100, to 400, to 900. The next morning we were at over 1000 people who had 'received' the video. Several hundred had actually watched at least a portion. That's amazing.
We are planning new events...with no dead time at the beginning. ; )
Technology has made this world seem small. I can't help but remember the days when I would ride a vehicle for 90 minutes to the city of Cayes in search of a telephone to call home. It was a different time. Now we do video calls from inside my house.
We thank ASAPH sponsors for making these things possible. With funds budgeted by the board of directors, we now have a fiber optic cable that brings the outside world right here.
We look forward to being live again soon. Keep your eyes and ears open!!!
