This year Wesley Village will honor three people in it's annual Heroes, Saints and Legends Awards Banquet.
Willard Kinzer and his wife, Lucy, helped establish Prestonsburg's Mountain Arts Center, the Wesley Christian School in Allen and many other endeavors to encourage and develop young people in the mountains. A four-time national champion in motorcycle hill climbing, Willard took up drag racing at age 79 and recently set a new speed record of 239 mph in his prized twin-turbo '89 Mustang.
Stella Marshall Honored as a 2009 "Outstanding Leader of the Pasture" by the Kentucky Annual Conference African American Ministries is a beautiful example of service to others. She is an active member of her church and continues to sing in their choir.
Jim Stratton is the third honoree this year. Jim has been a friend of mine for years. He and his wife Colleen have pastored churches in Kentucky for years. He's been a good friend to Wesley Village and a great encourager to all he meets.
This Tuesday night will be a great time to celebrate these wonderful people.
Look around this week and see who the Heroes, Saints and Legends you come in contact with each day.
