WHAT IS STIR 2018?
VOICES FROM INDIA & SOUTH AFRICA
ORIGINALLY FROM BANGALORE, INDIA
How many people do you know who have personally advised a king in Africa about the atrocities in his country? If you know our friend Wesley Paul, you know one. We’re excited to have Wesley join us for a week of inspirational messages from his international perspective. With offices in Lexington, KY, and Bangalore, India, Wesley Paul has traveled to over 30 countries to share a positive message of hope, love, and peace in hard times. He has a passion for speaking and meeting with various cultures and ethnic groups across the world, and we could think of no better partner and friend to join us as we celebrate a week of events in our community. Wesley will be speaking at each event of STIR 2018, so there are multiple opportunities to hear about the unique and exciting stories he has to share—Don’t miss it!
ORIGINALLY FROM ZULULAND, SOUTH AFRICA
Hosting our friend Wesley Paul at each event will be Dr. Don, our pastor here at FBS. If you don’t know him, we’d love to introduce you to Dr. Don Wilton, who has been with us since 1993. Don grew up in South Africa, where he attended boarding school and often rode horses up into the hills of Zululand to share with the native tribes in their language. From serving as a tank commander in the South African military to selling everything he and his wife, Karyn, owned and moving to America with only two suitcases to their name, to leading tours of Israel, Jordan, Egypt, Rome, Turkey, and Greece, Dr. Don is full of stories of hope and encouragement that we hope you get to hear!
