There is a lot to be said about longsuffering for Jesus and obedience to God’s Word. Pastor Bill Wilson, founder of Metro World Child in Brooklyn, New York, says it’s the main reason he and his organization are still around and have found the favor of men for the past 40 years.
And, he says, it’s the reason the New York City Police Department invited Wilson and Metro World Child to hold a Sunday school class Wednesday afternoon, June 9, in Times Square. The event is part of the reopening of New York City since the COVID-19 lockdown began in early 2020.
“I truly believe that it’s our credibility, our longevity and our faithfulness to God for all this time that has helped us win people over here,” Wilson says. “We’ve been around a long time, and the city knows it. They’ve worked with us in so many ways, and we’ve had a unique platform.
“It’s because we’ve stayed extremely actively with things like food distribution centers that have helped feed a lot of hungry people over the years,” he says. “Our Sunday school has raised children up to become leaders—pastors and youth pastors all over the world. It’s a factor of faithfulness, and it speaks volumes.”
Wilson admits he was a bit surprised that the city has allowed a Christian gathering like the one they have put together as a part of the city’s official reopening. But considering what Metro World Child has done for New York, he says, it should come as no surprise at all.
