Here at Team Walk and Talk, our mission is to bring hope and encouragement to the world through Jesus Christ. On May 9th, that mission expanded to include fighting suicide BOLDLY. Donald James Soultatos, devoted member of Team Walk and Talk and father to Justin Soultatos tragically took his life. Alcoholism, depression and hopelessness were too heavy a burden for him to continue to bare. We failed him, but in honor of this wonderful man’s life, we want to make sure we are doing all we can, to not let this type of tragedy happen again. Our goal is to surround hurting people, provide a healthy outlet to share their feelings, and give them hope that things can get better. You are not alone, we are here and want to share Jesus’s healing and restorative touch with you.
Seeing his son was down one day, Don said to Justin, “PICK UP OUR SWORD!” as he lay a sword on Justin’s bed. He meant for him to not let circumstances get him down, to fight the good fight and be more than a Conqueror!! This visual stuck with Justin and today is our rally cry to boldly fight the good fight against suicide as a team globally. I would like to encourage you to PICK UP YOUR SWORD and fight with us. If you would like to join us, please contact us under the GET INVOLVED heading on this website.
And He said to them, “But now, whoever has a money belt is to take it alone, likewise also a bag, and whoever has no sword is to sell his coat and buy one.
Arise, O Lord, confront him, and bring him low; Deliver my soul from the wicked with your sword.
Blessed are you, O Israel; Who is like you, a people saved by the Lord, Who is the shield of your help and the Sword of your majesty! So your enemies will cringe before you, And you will tread upon their high places.
