If you could read that first paragraph, you are probably pretty excited. Here’s what it says.
“Praise the Lord! It is a joy to announce we have a Spanish Language Coordinator joining the US-National Coordinating Team. Welcome to the team Josh Britnell. Josh and his wife, Diana and four children are just returning to Pensacola, Florida from a season serving in Mexico. Having been involved in the leadership of Simply Mobilizing in Mexico; they believe God has led them to this role. We also believe they have come back to the States for such a time as this!!!”
Josh and Diana have served with Globe International in Nicaragua and Mexico. For more information about Josh and to see his beautiful family, check out the link at the bottom of this email.
We are so excited for this development. Won’t you help us??? If you know of Spanish speaking graduates, Kairos Facilitators or Head Facilitators who were trained in English, please send them this announcement. If you know people who have come to the US who were involved in Spanish Kairos in another country, please see that they get this announcement.
It is a Kairos moment. We believe the mobilization of the Spanish church in the US will make a critical contribution toward finishing the task of reaching unreached peoples who have come to the US and those who remain in other countries.
Please pray for Josh as he and our Spanish speaking sisters and brothers join together to plan and launch the Spanish Simply Mobilizing movement in the US. We know there are more Spanish speaking trained Simply Mobilizing Kairos people in the US, please help us find them!!!

Josh Britnell grew up in Pensacola, FL, just across the water from the Naval Air Station and spent his summers playing baseball, going to the beach, and watching the Blue Angels. When he was eighteen years old he heard the call of God to missions and served with Globe International as a missionary intern. He traveled to England, the Philippines, and South Africa with Arise and Shine Evangelistic Association.
Josh returned to Pensacola after his internship to finish college and met the love of his life, Diana, along the way. They got married, and he began to serve as the Young Adult and Outreach Pastor at Liberty Church in Pensacola, but the desire for missions never left.
In 2013, Josh and Diana joined Globe International as missionaries and moved to Nicaragua the following year, where Josh served as Field Director for Children of Destiny, a ministry that rescues abandoned and abused children in Nicaragua.
In 2016, Josh and Diana sensed that God was moving them, and they accepted His call to go to Mexico where Josh served as the Director of Operations for Misión Global, a Mexican missions agency which is focused on mobilizing Mexican missionaries to go to unreached people groups.
In 2019, Josh and Diana sensed the Lord moving them back to the U.S., and in 2020 they accepted the role of Spanish Language Coordinator with Simply Mobilizing. Josh is passionate about mobilizing this generation to “preach the gospel where Christ was not known, so that… those who were not told about him will see, and those who have not heard will understand.” (Rom 15:20-21). Josh holds a M.A. in Global Studies from Liberty University. He and Diana have been married for 15 years and have 4 children. They currently reside in Pensacola, Florida.
