For centuries, religion has played an important role in shaping history and culture. The Zimmermans live by their Mennonite faith with intention through following the word of God, as revealed by Jesus. As a reward, they get their hearts filled with a sense of peace, love and belonging.

Kris and Ruth Zimmerman have made Cuba home for themselves and their four children: Katrina, 10, Krixana, 7, Addison, 4, and Adrian, 10 months. As a breadwinner for the family, Kris, 32, owns and works at the “5 Star Buildings.” The business serves as the spring of the family’s revenue, through the manufacturing and sale of portable cabins, garages, garden sheds, and more. Ruth, 31, is a homemaker. The family life requires her utmost devotion, often leaving just enough space for prayer and rest.

“Our family is far from perfect,” says Ruth. “We turn to Jesus to find solace and healing for our own brokenness. It is hope that inspires and defines our choices in life.”
