Its December 28, four days till 2020. In 2020, our daughter Emma turns 18 and graduates from high school. 2020 marks the 9 year anniversary of Steps of Justice, and our 5th year in San Diego as a ministry. We also have two Cambodia trips planned for 2020, as well as hosting two teams for learning and ministry trips in San Diego. I am so excited about what is to come next year for these reasons and more.
I also dream about where 2020 will lead with the work that we are doing among low income communities in the City Heights neighborhood of San Diego. We continue to meet regularly with the Syrian youth group, I am working half time at City Heights Prep school, made up of mainly refugees, immigrants and low income communities and our Integrity Fitness Club that Steps of Justice runs is growing.
Our Integrity Fitness Club gives me so much life. In February I will head to Seattle and take my CrossFit Kids certification, which will help me be a more effective coach to our students. This past year we have purchased $2800 in equipment for our classes, which we run free for our students and staff. I am looking to raise another $3500 by the end of the year to purchase four machines for our club, which we will use regularly. I want to purchase two rowing machines and two assault bikes. These are high ticket items, but will make a huge difference in the workouts we do. They will also help our students feel apart of something that is excellent. The goal, to get kids fit, and to train up some students to become trainers. This year I would love to see some of our students get their Level 1 CrossFit certification and potentially work at a gym once they graduate.

Happy New Year
