Do you know pastor Bill Wilson?

Abandoned on a street corner by his mother at the age of 12, Pastor Bill sat and waited for her at that corner for 3 days. She never came back. A Christian layman who was on his way to see his son in the hospital stopped and picked him up. Anybody could have stopped, but it was the Christian man who stopped. After getting him a hot meal, this gentleman paid for Pastor Bill to attend a Sunday School camp, where he gave his life to Christ. This was the start of his incredible walk with God – one that would change thousands of lives.

He’s the pastor of the largest Sunday school in the world. Metro World Child reaches 200,000 kids every week. Everything started in New York many years ago.

Pastor Bill Wilson was participating in Sunday School and medical ministry work at an undisclosed classified location on the Syrian border. On Tuesday, October 10th, at 9:30 pm local time, he sustained a gunshot wound to the back.

Pastor Bill was wearing a bullet-proof vest, which kept the bullet from penetrating into his body, and helped save his life. However, due to the high velocity of the weapon, he sustained serious injuries, including cracked and broken ribs, a punctured lung and a fractured skull.

After the injury, he was taken to Jerusalem and from there was sent on to London in the United Kingdom to receive follow-up medical care.

As many of you know, Pastor Bill has been referred to as “a very tough individual.” As you would also expect from him, this will not deter him from doing what needs to be done, particularly at this critical time of year. He has already informed us here in New York that he is planning to continue his tour in the UK. Although he has had to cancel at least one meeting, and possibly more in the next few days, he is still pressing forward.

“It was the Hand of God, and the prayers of God’s people that protected me. I’m so grateful for those prayers.” stated Pastor Bill. “But since we’re moving towards Christmas, we can’t let the children down; they are depending on us.”

Although Pastor Bill is still coughing up blood even as he was speaking to us, he has left the hospital and is continuing his work. However, due to the gravity of the injuries, he must curtail some of his other, more physically demanding, obligations.
