Tour de KL

After a whirlwind weekend of gigs, you'd expect Agapella to be drained, depleted and defeated, but the reverse is true. Agapella returned to Singapore on Sunday evening enthused, energised and ever praising of God's goodness upon us.

Mervin, a host who's second to none, looking into our every need to make sure we're well-taken care off on Saturday and Sunday, including the preparation of our caffeine fixes.
 Even though it wasn't the first time we were performing across the causeway in Malaysia, it was Agapella's maiden 'international tour' of sorts. We were hence encouraged when Pastor Brian Ranjan of Putera Aman Assembly remarked how our sound was of 'international standard'! But we know God wants nothing less than the best from us earthen vessels, through which He works wonders to minister and bless those we bring our music to.

Here are members of Agapella in praise of God for what He has done...

- The souls that were saved and the lives that were touched by our ministry - people responded willingly and openly. If Agapella had just been there for one life to be touched, it would have been worth it.
- For all the invitations Agapella got to go back, it showed that we are an effective ministry and that God is using us mightily to do His will and others are a testimony to that.
- The most exciting thing was that people were touched by the Holy Spirit and made decisions for Christ. Also that the church there was so warm in receiving us - truly a reflection of the wider body life!
Chris & Colin
- The fervency in prayer of the African students and church congregations - so stirring and encouraging.
- That God gave me strength to perform despite my strained back not allowing me to stand up most of the time.
Daniel Loke
- The love for God and his ministry demonstrated by Pastor Brian and his team. They give their best to the Lord in terms of evangelising and reaching out to others.
- Thank God that we pulled together and did 4 gigs in 3 days despite late nights and tiredness and morning syndromes; praise Him for His sustenance and strength!
- The prayers of the African students and the hospitality and kindness of Pastor Brian and his team.
Si Cheng
- Despite the early mornings and many gigs, none of us had sore throats and my lips didn't fall off. Was thinking about it and I realised this is the most I've ever percussed in a short period of time and I think the same goes in terms of singing for many of Agapella's members. Also the fellowship of everyone in the group and Pastor Brian and team while we were there. Was a fun trip! Was truly a privilege to minister with the church there.
- The blessings they gave us just as much, if not more, than what we gave them. Despite being sick and having off-the-stave notes, I managed to hit most of them!
- God's grace, protection and sustenance before and during the trip. When we went out to share His love and blessings, we were very much blessed ourselves through the passion, hospitality and support shown by Pastor Brian and his team.
- The decisions made by the 10 or so to follow Christ/re-dedicate their lives to Him
- How people from various nationalities and cultures come together to worship One God!
- God's continual empowerment upon Agapella to keep testifying for Him, not just in Singapore, but beyond, and not just to one people, but all - red, and yellow, black and white, all are precious in His sight!
- Christian love demonstrated by our brothers and sisters at Lim Kok Wing University and the church.
- Unity, single-mindedness and grace among members of Agapella.
- Journey mercies to and from Kuala Lumpur.
Agapella Loaded & Ready!
So what's next for Agapella?

Let it be known that we just can't stay silent, for we must keep singing for His joy has come!
