Following the Footsteps of the Apostles: A Tour of Turkey's Bible Churches
HELLO IT'S ME
Kirushanthan Krishnapillai is better known as “Cricket” to most people in his life. The nickname is not from the sport but from the infamous insect. Cricket was given this name by his elementary school teacher because he was known as a freestyle dancer, the class clown, and was probably louder than the average student. Hence, the name Cricket was born.
Cricket is a 25-year-old studying Biblical Studies and Theology with a minor in Youth Ministry at Tyndale University. Cricket previously attended Centennial College for Police Foundation. (A ministry worker who did Policing! Interesting, eh?) Cricket went on to study Child and Youth Care at George Brown College where he met Kamal, his significant other. Currently, Cricket works at Toronto Youth Unlimited and First Alliance Church Toronto. Cricket’s intention for this website is to open up about his ministry and also share his writings from his past blog, Confessions From Cricket. Cricket will write on various topics about but not limited to life, mental health, ministry, poems he’s written to Kamal, and much more. He is passionate about photography, videography, and hanging with friends and family.
Cricket came from a Hindu background and became a born-again Christian in February 2014. You can check out his testimony here.
The purpose of Cricket’s life is to follow what 1 John 2:6 tells us, “Whoever claims to live in him must live as Jesus did.” He believes this verse sums up loving God, loving others, and making disciples.
The name for this website derives from this paragraph: “Before Christ I was like a caterpillar: limited to only what I can do (which is not a lot), and unaware of what was really out there and who God really was. Once I accepted Christ into my world, I felt like a butterfly, finally free from all the things that had held me down and penned me in. I was free because Jesus died on the cross and forgave all my sins.” Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here. - 2 Corinthians 5:17
