Last Saturday (8/10) hedaBATIK was joined FESTURI 2011. Festuri is an annual multicultural celebration. This year Festuri presents The Village – free global beachside carnival was located in Happy Valley Caloundra on Saturday and Sunday 8-9 October 2011 from 10 am till 5 pm for both days.
As always Festuri holds Multicultural Music & Dance, Market & Food Stalls, Workshops and Kids Activities. Speaking about part of Indonesia, I was keen to present Batik Clinic!
There is a little bit of faith ride when facing Batik Clinic for Festuri! The weather forecast said rain. I believe the power of prayer! My friends and I keep uphold the prayer for weather miracle. I was so positive that the weather will be fine. The fact was ……..heavy rain, very dark, hail, wind and cold! Completely not the best day for any outdoor activity!
I sent a text to the organizer “What can we do in the rain?” But my heart so confident that everything happened for a reason! Somewhere in the corner of my heart, I still believe, everything will be alright and weather miracle will happen! I don’t know why? I didn’t worry or upset to see the bad weather.
The organizer replied me that just hold up for an hour and call her back. I was glad to that but before an hour, I decided to go to the location!! Still heavy rain, very dark, hail, wind and cold! I went to the location!! The main stage, all marquess for workshops set! Ready to use! So were market and food stalls also set.
I got out from the car and joined them. Many of them desperately not happy with the day, blamed the weather of course! Many of them decided to go home. Too disappointed!!
I said to the organizer that I stay and see how it go. I went back to the car, did a little prayer and a quick nap. I still believe something will happen for a good reason! I confirmed myself that I must set up by 12 pm as the schedule of hedaBATIK started 1 pm and finished 3 pm.
When I checked my watch, it was 11.45 and the day changed…….. the rain stop!! Then the nice and bright day, beautiful blue sky and hot came!!!
Thank God for answering our prayer as always!! Nothing impossible for Him!!
