Benita Joy is a Malayalee Christian and serves as the Chief Editor for South Asian Connection. She is a woman of faith, gifted in the area of leadership and administration, and has a heart for world missions. Her desire is to live a life that is pure and to serve God's purposes in her generation. Benita is pursuing a double major in English and Psychology at the University of British Columbia. She loves big cities, chai, the internet, roller coasters, international cuisines, music, and hanging out with friends. She is the youngest member of Team SAC, plays guitar with a baby pink pick (Yikes!), and she's not much taller than your average dwarf (don't tell her that).
Pastor Pritam walks out of his bedroom, like he's on a mission, with a box of Q-tips.
Suddenly out of the blue he says, in his Pastor Pritam kind of way, "You know, Q-tips are very good!" We all nod in agreement a little befuddled.
"Do you all use Q-tips?" We nod yes, tired from sleeping at 2am and waking at 5am.
Pastor Pritam nods his "I see" kind of nod and then suggests, "Why don't we all take a Q-tip and clean our ears?"
The rest of us give each other amused glances.
Pastor Pritam, in all seriousness, eagerly starts passing out Q-tips and we all burst out laughing.
And so, all of us, from my Ammachi to cousin Kevin, sat around Pastor Pritam's living room at 6:30am on the morning of August 8th cleaning our ears with his Q-tips.
Ya gotta love Pastor Pritam!
