Bio

Triston the Magician was first introduced to magic while he and his mother temporarily lived in a homeless shelter. He was four years old at the time. A man residing at the shelter did the ‘’pull the quarter out of your ear trick,” and it fascinated the young child. At the age of seven, his mother had an apartment and she took him to a Christmas parade. At the parade, fliers were passed out inviting people to come to a magic show at a local church, followed by refreshments. Triston’s mother thought it would be an awesome and inexpensive way to end the day – not to mention they would get a free meal and her young son really wanted to go. Triston was mesmerized as the magician pulled a rabbit from his hat. At that moment his curiosity for the craft was born.

By the age of eight, young Wilkinson’s life had changed. He had a stepfather who adopted him and a modest, yet nice home. He also had a new baby brother and his career as a magician had not quite begun. By the time the little fellow turned ten years old his mother purchased him a few little magic tricks from the local ‘Everything is a dollar’ store. Then at the age of twelve, his mother walked into the living room to see her son levitating! She was afraid when she saw her son floating in the air and demanded that he stopped thinking that he was performing some kind of witchcraft ritual. That was the first of many tricks that would shock her. Once she even walked into the kitchen to see his body in two separate pieces. She would make sure that Santa always put a magic kit under the tree each year. Eventually, at the age of fifteen, he asked his mother for a straight jacket for Christmas. Both of his parents found that an amusing request and although he no longer believed in Santa his little brother did. Santa delivered once again.

He also had asked his mother to allow him to join the Society of American Magicians. She got him a prepaid credit card and allowed him to join. He always made sure he kept up to date on his dues. In high school there was a talent show for Black History Month. He wanted to do magic but was told he couldn’t unless he could incorporate it into black history. He actually knew that the first American Magician was a black man and his show was a hit.

Wilkinson had a friend named Nathan who also performed magic and Nathan introduced him to his first mentor, Mr. Robert Day. By the time Wilkinson was 16 all of the local children called him ‘Magic Man’ and he was performing for birthday parties and making a good wage for a young man. He was performing at many local churches doing ‘Magic With a Message.’ Every where he has gone he has performed his magic. He was even hired to do an event in Natchez, MS that was put on by the downtown development community. He traveled to the State Fair and performed for a side show. His mother told him on the way home, “Please don’t grow up and become a Carnie!” Wilkinson joined the national guard as a Military Police and actually did magic for his drill sergeants. That was between his junior and senior year of high school. He went on to graduate high school with honors and then finish out his training for the military. Eventually, he moved to Saint Louis Missouri and finally he was able to go to Las Vegas. He had begged his mother to take him when he was fifteen but she couldn’t afford the trip.

His life long dream had been 1. To perform in Vegas and 2. To meet David Copperfield. (He actually had an autographed book from David Copperfield that he won in a contest online when he was twelve). No matter where he has gone and what he has done he has always kept his Eyes on the Prize and that prize has been to make it to Vegas and to “Make IT”. You will never find someone with such a gift, and passion as you will find in him. His mother has always believed that God has something special for him.

The ABCs of becoming a Christian

“A” stands for Admit. A person must admit to God that she is a sinner. She must be sorry for her sin and turn away from sinning. Verses that support this step are Romans 3:23; Romans 6:23; Acts 3:19; and 1 John 1:9.

“B” stands for Believe. A person must believe that Jesus is God’s Son and that God sent Jesus to pay the penalty for sin. Verses about believing include John 3:16; John 14:6; and Romans 5:8.

“C” stands for Confess. A person must confess her faith in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. Read Romans 10:9-10, 13.

After a person admits to God that she is a sinner, repents and turns from her sin, believes that Jesus is God’s Son sent to die to pay for the sins of the world, and confesses that faith in Jesus, she is a Christian and knows Jesus as her Savior.

Remember: It is not your job to “save” your child – it is God’s! However, as a parent you have the responsibility (and privilege) of guiding your child to faith in Christ. Pray that God will give you the wisdom to teach your child about Him. Then know that you can only do this with His help and thank Him for His guidance. After all, He loves your child even more than you do!

The following is a sample prayer to use as a guide for praying with your child:

Dear God, thank You for choosing to love me! I know I am a sinner. I believe You sent Your Son, Jesus Christ, to die for my sins. I believe He rose again and lives today. Today, I repent and turn away from my sin. Thank You for Your wonderful love and for changing my life forever. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
