About Hot Rev
I was born in Sri Lanka and grew up in Singapore. I met my wife Joy while I was studying in Australia. We got married in 1989 and moved to New Zealand. A few years later I took up New Zealand citizenship. My wife and I have 3 children.
I am a Christ follower which means my passion is to live as a child of God and to serve humanity. I am not religious so I offend a lot of religious people who are shocked that as a pastor I say and do things that are not very religious. I am a Christ follower with strong convictions based on my belief in the Bible. So I offend everyone else.
I am a social entrepreneur which means I have a strong vision and passion to enhance the health and wellbeing of society and will fight against the injustice and evils in society. But I am not an activist or a lobbyist as I am too soft. I am not business minded so I will be poor in this life. I am not a details or process minded person so I get frustrated when things dont move quickly.
I am a family man who loves my family and I am committed to them. But I am a man whose life’s calling is to serve humanity so my loyalty and commitment to my family is shared with people in the church and community.
Finally I am a unique (some people might say strange) individual whose life is very paradoxical. That is why I am too complicated to understand and people give up trying to understand me. I am an extrovert and I am also becoming an introvert where I just need time for myself. I am a people person but I am becoming more task focused in order to get the projects that I am involved in completed.
So thats me
