TM – My Last Two Projects

It’s a bit weird that this year 2016 Christmas, I didn’t get involved in any ministry activities and so on – and it’s been a year since I left Teater Mono for its own good and regeneration.

It’s also has been a year since I left the group line that I’ve created because of a friendship conflict that they want me to change or they are just tired of me and my antics. Even tho I’m not tired of making things at church or creating something that is maybe beyond what other people expected or even think about at the first place.

Maybe ย God also didn’t like my last two project or particulary the last one that I directed because He simply just want me to let it go and moved on, focused on my art work as a theatre artist.

I don’t know. But somehow I missed the mayhem, I missed my so called tired of me friends, I missed their antics, I missed creating something for the church, I missed my roots. Which is Drama Ministry.

If I can get involved again in Drama Ministry and spent my whole days in church again, I would be extremely happy. Because that’s where I belong, and that’s where I begin, and that’s where my home is.

I don’t know. I think I also found a new home from where I work now. New home and new family. And somehow it feels right.

Like working with Penguins, working with swimmers and mermaid, and working with an international level of Theatre Industry in which I never thought that I would be an SM / Stage Manager for my living / day job.

It’s bizarre to think that now I’m a stage manager. I am still in awe of the fact that I am now making a living as Stage Manager / Assistant Stage Manager – but still, it’s Stage Management.

I remember that I used to get a P- for my Stage Management unit and was afraid of calling cues because I might missed it or I might be too soon to called it. But I’m sure overtime, I will be better with practice.

I think my last year Christmas drama, I feel like everybody is jammed pack for the Christmas Eve and it was my biggest and proudest moment yet. Because I feel like God is using us as a messengerย to remind His church about His rapture and second coming – and I remember there were so many people that came and it was successfully done all because of His hands and His grace.

I also remember that last Christmas, it was one of my breakthrough show as a Stage Manager. My first time calling the cues to the show that God wants me to direct and create. It was with Lights, LCD, and wireless mic packs –> if you are in production, you know how sensitive these mic packs is. and plus with music.

We got 18 cues to roll in that day each show – and with the cast of 9 girls and 1 men potraying as the prince.

A lot of work and detailing comes into creating the stage and a lot of surrendering to His grace and His will.

I am still proud that I feel that was my proudest moment yet but surely enough, I can’t take the credit for it because ‘The Awaiting Christmas Feast’ happened because of His Grace and I am super proud that He chose us, me, Teater Mono to spread His news / gospel about His second coming on that 2015 Christmas Eve Day.

And I hope that is written in the stars. ๐Ÿ™‚

and Thank you Jesus for that moment. I’m still proud of ย how God is using us for it and I feel like that was my / His best work so far through Teater Mono.

After we finished, we ate all the foods. ๐Ÿ˜€ – I love the detailing of this. There are so many Godly moments in creating this. From free shoes, that fancy plating / plates that Mom suddenly get for her Christmas parcels, that fake foods, that Crocodile long bun, that free white fabrics that the girls used and we can get cheap tailoring / dressmaker, that free materials from my Dad sofa remaking that we used for the girls pouches plus the sofa handmaker that somehow were in my house doing Dads sofa decorating and I just had to pay him some tips, that moment where all my family members attended and they dressed up nicely and I was the one who wear short pants for 2015 Christmas, the security guard at Church who helped me with everything until passed midnights, that cheap long 4M fabrics that I bought near the church and got discount from it, that little flowerly detail from my house, that silver ribbon that I get from the Best Pong shops, that food where we shopped at Lotte Grosir because its cheap, and that free wine bottle that mom collected and I finally can use it for this. And most importantly all of these happened because of Him and His help and His grace. I could have not done this all and made an amazing impact for His church without Jesus helping me every step of the way. I’m glad I did it. I’m glad that I listened to His voice and actually doing His Calling. ย — And that even though this might be my last two projects from me with TM, it surely is one of the best that He has created through me. ๐Ÿ™‚

IMG_6757.JPGWith The Whole Team –

I hope they can continue the legacy.. And even I’ve left the social media chat group – that doesn’t mean I stopped serving Him. Teater MoNo GKI will still be there and maybe I’ll volunteer there again incognito wise – but really, TM is actually part of GKI Bogor and this Christmas I’ve given this baby of mine to the church, to HIM. It has grown now and came out from the nest hahaha – so I think it’s good for this ministry to finally be owned by GKI Bogor and let the Arts Commission managed it with new people! and I pray for that to happen !

Dear Lord Jesus,

Let Teater Mono be at Your service again and this time with more stronger good quality drama ministry only for Your Glory.

In Your Name, I Pray, Amen.

๐Ÿ™‚ – So if God moved you with this post, please continue the legacy :)mx

TGBTG !
