Grace Martial Arts, Florida, USA

Investing in the lives and Eternal Destiny of Youth and Families


+ Beth continues to be challenged with chronic pain due to last year’s car accident.

+ Son Jonathan’s wife Rachel gave birth to Ronin Ezra, December 22, 2014.

+ Daughter Rebecca will give birth to her fifth child, April 2015. Rebecca, her husband Chris and Beth continue wonderful administrative assistance for 175 GMA students enrolled in four Grace Martial Arts clubs. Rebecca & Chris’s Joshua, age 7, continutes to receive positive medical reports with regards his scoliosis surgery and improvement.

+ Daughter Rachel graduated from State College of Florida. We request fervent prayers for her.


+ I made a large flip chart to teach a 3-part series on The Deity of Christ: Part 1: Divine Names of God; Part 2: Five distinctive, divine attributes only God possesses; Part 3: Seven works God alone can do. Jesus Christ has all the names of God, all five divine attributes, and did all seven works God alone can do! Many GMA students have never had any Bible teaching. It has been a real joy for us to have the students, parents and church fellowships positively respond to The Deity of Christ teaching and Scripture memory.

+ Every year we are blessed to graduate outstanding teen-age black belt leaders who are grounded in the grace-centered, finished-work teaching of Christ. Thank you for your prayers PERSONAL PRAYER REQUESTS

+ Mark McGee, key GMA adult leader, moved to Alabama leaving many students in Tampa with the need for an advanced Black Belt instructor. Pray the Lord’s direction to meet this need.

+ We are requesting direction and provisions to develop a DVD – an instructional presentation for Christian martial arts instructors, parents and students to provide a clear teaching of the Gospel plus Biblical illustrations and life skills utilizing martial arts skills and principles.

In Christ’s Love & Grace,

Bob & Beth
