Exciting News!

We have some exciting news to share with all of you. We have payed the deposit for the locale for the gym and the remodeling of the space will start Saturday! Thank you for those of you who have been praying and for those of you who have contributed to this project! If everything goes smoothly we will be able to open in July. Stay tuned for more details. You might be wondering why it has been so long since our last post. One reason is that Jennifer went on a last minute trip to the US for several days in order to see her father who is recovering from surgery, her friend who is ill with cancer, and to help another friend. We are thankful for several people who gifted her with the funds needed to make the trip possible. She regrets not being able to see most of you while she was there, but she hopes to return in July to see her brother who will be in Kentucky visiting. He lives in Cambodia and is going to fly her home to see him. Josh will most likely be here getting things ready for the gym and continuing with the rest of our ministry responsibilities, but if you are in Kentucky maybe Jennifer will get to visit with you. Josh took a trip to Mexico City and is returning this weekend to visit with our ministry partner, Rodrigo, and to get CrossFit certified. Since the gym will be a Crossfit gym. This week we have been busy having some counseling sessions with our friends, spending time with our neighbors, and getting all of the paper work and funds in order for the gym. How can you pray? -That we will have all the funds we need for the equipment we need for the gym and for the first few months rent -That God would guide us as we balance all of our ministries and relationships -For our friends who are having family problems -For the spiritual maturity and growth of people in our church group -That Christ would be glorified in our marriage, our church group, the gym, and all we do! To Him be the glory!!!!!!!!! Pictures: -A Crossfit gym in Mexico City -Jennifer with our Mexican friends in Kentucky -Us at a quince años party. They are very special and elegante occasions here in Mexico. A quince años is when a girl turns 15 and becomes a woman.
