"We loved you so much that we were delighted to share with you not only the gospel of God but our lives as well, because you had become so dear to us. We worked day and night in order not to be a burden to anyone while we preached the gospel of God to you." 1 Thessalonians 2:8-9

This blog is much more than our family and our crazy antics. After being overseas in Haiti for 4 years we prayed about coming back to the States and just still felt like God was going to use our family overseas...so here we go again. The big move to St. Vincent and the Grenadines and now the school growing and moving to Barbados. We just can't seem to rest until our family can love as many as we can to relationships with Christ. We always feel so blessed to meet the many people we get to serve with overseas, and of course love that you are reading with us as we serve in a new culture!

Celebrating Independence Day here!

 
Mrs. Maddie made blue, green, and yellow hats for us!  And that day we could wear blue, green, and yellow to school instead of our uniform.  Some kids chose to wear whatever they wanted:)

 
We had flag cupcakes for snack.  Can you tell we loved that treat?

Pax with his flag!

 
The festivities included military firing rounds and a marching band. 
 
 
They even had green snow cones and cotton candy!
 
 
Can you pick us out in the stands? 
 
 
 
Here we are with Bro. Sherman, he is here visiting and teaching.  The students think he is the funniest teacher, as he has so many tricks to show them.  Today he was even dancing at the festivities!

 

 
Some of our students picked front row standing seats.
