Football Family joins Reel Life in Haiti
The Jones family of Memphis, TN, has a great deal of experience with big-time athletics. All three brothers have played or currently play football for the University of Alabama, while the oldest, Barrett Jones, now plays for the St. Louis Rams. But the Jones family also has a great deal of experience in something else… overseas missions. Parents Rex and Leslie have been leading their family to travel and serve others for many years. Their strong faith and love for their neighbor drives them to make caring for “the least of these” a main priority in their lives.
The attitude and lifestyle of this tight knit bunch is highly contagious, and it was an honor to serve alongside them. The world frequently showers them with praise and accolades for athletic ability, but after just a short time, it is obvious that they are indeed special, only for reasons far more important than championships and fame!
