CARL JUNCTION, MO.--- Bill Kenagy is the pastor of the Carl Junction United Methodist Church. Earlier this month his church was struck by lightening and burned to the ground. He also recently learned that he has diabetes and had to loose weight. Bill has been able to take off 90 pounds and he says he and the church have learned a valuable lesson, to never give up. 

"We have this opportunity to make a new beginning and a fresh start to come out of this healthier and vibrant," said Bill Kenagy, C.J. United Methodist Church Pastor.

Kenagy will be participating in a 5K in September and a half marathon in October.
