I am happy to share the newly acquired gym space has been renovated and we are in the process of buying equipment and getting organized. This once dream is coming together thanks to the faithfulness of so many that made donations in my dad's memory. We can't wait to see the lives that are going to be impacted by this space. The plan is to finish the outdoor exercise area by mid-July and do an official dedication then.
Exercise to give life is the motto this community is learning as they see the impact exercise has had on their lives. This month we had the 5th annual Community 2K where we had over 200 participants of all ages and abilities come run or walk. It was a special day filled with laughter, sweat, and determination. Individuals came together to exercise and support our efforts to decrease the incidence of strokes and diabetes in our communities. Last week we had 60 people show up for one of our weekly exercise classes, so we know the word is getting out and people are learning how they can improve their health while "fe espo" doing sport. Check out the video of this year's community 2K:
I continue to be overwhelmed by your faithfulness, prayers, and support of the work God is doing here. If you feel led to make a donation or would like to follow what God is doing through this ministry and in my heart, feel free to check out my website:
