Creatively overcoming a culture of fear

Paul Ieti

When fighting with the US Army in Afghanistan, Paul Ieti and his brothers and sisters in arms faced great fear.  But God had given 21 year old Paul the gift of a beautiful voice.  He had refined his gift growing up singing in church.  When times got tough during active service, Paul would bring relief and peace to those around him, strengthening those who needed support using his gift.  In so doing, Paul was salt and light and a sweet fragrance.

Recently, Paul decided to share his gift further and entered America’s Got Talent.  His audition was well received.  He sang a love song by Rihanna called Stay.

 

How about you?  All around us are people who face fear, loneliness and despair.  What creative gift have you been given to build up those around you and invite them into Kingdom living?
