Dinoj, thanks for taking the time to talk to Kairos. Please tell us a bit about yourself, your Christian formation and how you came into Jesus Youth?
There’s a lot to wonder about how beautiful God makes our life if we surrender our life to him, I could see this manifested throughout our life. Being born and brought up in a middle class catholic family my parents enlightened me with catholic richness.
My brother and I studied in a school near our village; my fascination was more on the practical implications of concepts, rather than just parroting them. Tinkering stuff and making something out of it was my favourite hobby. Engineering was always a fascination for me and I decided to make it my career. During my preparation for engineering, my elder brother introduced me to Jesus Youth at Jubilee Mission Medical college, in Kerala. Soon Jesus Youth became an integral part of my life. God was kind to me and I got admission for Mechanical engineering at NSS College of Engineering, Palakkad. A beautiful college with an active JY group, the prayer meetings were conducted at the nearby church. My beloved JY seniors helped me to grow in personal prayer and to participate in the sacramental life of the Church in its fullness. Gradually God was nurturing me by making me a part of Thrissur sub-region team and the ‘Medical-Engineering student’s ministry’ Central team, Kerala.
That was indeed a time of great formation. Tell us where the Lord led you after your studies.
