Good advice is worth its weight in gold. Dennis Rainey welcomes his long-time friend, Carl Wilson, the founder of CRU’s Student Venture. Dennis recalls Carl’s advice to him 40 years ago when Carl advised him to read the Word and pray with Barbara every night, a suggestion Dennis took to heart. Wilson also reminisces about his stint in the Navy and the tiny piece of steel that flew in his eye and ended his career as a pilot. When his engagement ended too, Carl felt his whole world beginning to collapse. But God had other plans. Carl tells how he came to faith, and how he came to meet Sara Jo, the woman with whom he has shared life and ministry for 66 years.
Carl W. Wilson is the President and C.E.O. of Andragathia Inc. He graduated with honors with three earned degrees from Maryville College and Fuller Theological Seminary.
