Wilson is the youth leader at International Punjabi Masihi Church in Vancouver, Canada. Everyone loves this radical preacher's passion for Christ and His Church. Wilson helped organize the South Asian Global Convention (SAGC 2004) under the leadership of Pastor Pritam Singh. He is as "hairy-as-a-yak," "spits-like-a-camel," and is a F.A.T. (Faithful, Available, and Teachable) Christian. Wilson, a Malayalee Christian holds a BA in Biblical Studies from Trinity Western University and his mission is to make Scripture relevant to today's generation. Famous quote: "Knock it off!"
"...if we are faithless, he will remain faithful, for he cannot disown himself." (2 Timothy 2:13)
We had an awesome Sunday Service. It was time for the youth to take over. We made some adjustments and gave it an "Ignite" makeover.
Marcel Mourneau was our guest speaker and man can he let it rip! He spoke of Moses and how God was still faithful and used him inspite of his failures. MM didn't cheap on using his Punjabi either. We were all at the edge of our seat. God I love this man. He is a true inspiration.
He obeyed that call of God which led him to Punjab. He can speak fluent Punjabi. Thank you Jesus for Men of God like him. They stir us up, inspire us, and remind us to keep running the race no matter what. Let's do it!
I was shocked to hear that he didn't know about SAGC Singapore. We need to get the word out.
