Cementing Our Future

A big hello from HiJenx! We apologize for the massive gap in videos.

    Chris & Jess, wanted to say thank you for all your hard work to produce this content. I think i’m pretty much caught up on all the videos. We are going through the process of applying for my green card and hope to move from the UK to AZ in the first half of 2019 so your blogs are of great interest!
