Keith grew up in Myerstown of Lebanon County PA, son of Galen and Ruth (Gingrich) Martin.
Jewel grew up in Morris of Tioga County PA, daughter of Dan and Joy (Bergey) Stoltzfus.
For the first 9 years of their marriage they lived in Berks County, PA, where Keith was employed at Horst Signs of Myerstown.
After much prayer and looking to God for direction, they made plans to move to Tioga County on June 15, 2013. It was their desire to do something that would bless the local community and provide a way to work in a family atmosphere alongside their children.
The Lord blessed this desire and made it possible for construction to begin on Martin's Pantry the week after they moved. November 12, 2013 marked the opening day!
May the Lord Jesus Christ be honored in this business!
Keith and Jewel live beside the store and are members at the Liberty Mennonite Church on Nauvoo Road.
