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!"
Three Indians get together and observe a mixable work of God.
He takes the young Pentecostal south Indian to minister at a Chinese Baptist Church in metro Buncouver.
He takes a Indo-Canadian south Indian, at one time anti-pentecostal, to minister at a Pentecostal North Indian Church.
He also takes the mid Indian (neither north or south) to marry a Korean and study away at the local seminary.
This particular Indian boy loves both roti and rice! He has no preference but takes the best of both worlds.
The Indo-Canadian south Indian much prefers north Indian food at the drop of a dime anytime and any place!
The young Pentecostal south Indian minister at a Chinese Baptist Church in metro Buncouver sticks with his roots of rice and... that liquid stuff!
We all have decided to renounce our roots. The Mid Indian becomes Korean. The south Indo Canadian becomes Punjabi! The south Indian becomes Chinese!
God, what are you doing?
"For though I am free from all men, I have made myself a servant to all, that I might win the more; and to the Jews I became as a Jew, that I might win Jews; to those who are under the law, as under the law, that I might win those who are under the law; to those who are without law, as without law not being without law toward God, but under law toward Christ, that I might win those who are without law; to the weak I became as weak, that I might win the weak. I have become all things to all men, that I might by all means save some. Now this I do for the gospel’s sake, that I may be partaker of it with you." (1 Corinthians 9:19-23)
