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!"
So I decided to take on a class on Old Testament because I just love the Bible. But than I was feeling kinda lonely so I decided to pray that God would help me make friends in the class. I'm in a theatre with a couple of hundred students, almost all Christians so it shouldn't be to hard. Low and behold God did nothing less than ansrew my prayer.
This dude comes up beside and plugs in his laptop and so I say, "Hi!"
Well, we started getting into a conversation and you wouldn't believe it. He went to the same Bible College as some of my pastor friends. He even knew them. He also was affiliated with the same denomination as me (not that that matters in our generation anymore). Not only that, but he even plays guitar. I notice he has a wall paper on his computer of some of my most famed guitar heroes. Well, we get to talking about equipment and you wouldn't believe it but we have almost the same equipment. Same amp, guitar and even effects pedal... (But he has more toys than me) He even likes the same bands as me.
What a great God we have huh? Isn't amazing how God puts people in our paths? I just love Him! Gosh, the world doesn't know what they are missing. It is really sad! I wish they could only know what a real adventure is. It is better than any of these dull movies we see. But life with God is better than even the bestest of movies!
