"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!

Student of the Month

This year (thanks to the Keller's for adding some new ideas) we started having "Student of the Month".  It is based on  
W. ork ethic
I. nitiative
S. elflessness
E. xcellence
 After the staff votes on the student who best exhibited these qualities they get to choose from either a day free from "kitchen duty" or pick to have their favorite meal put on the school menu .  Then, they are also rewarded with going with a staff member to KFC or picking toiletries from a local store (no- we do not have a McDonalds like everyone else, but we do have a KFC just down the road). 
This is one way we can show positive reinforcement at the school and encourage them.  And we love seeing them succeed!

And the winners are . . . Alertha Adams for 2nd year and Rodney Jusme for 1st year!

Our electronics instructor Bro. Matthias teaching some of the students.  Such a neat opportunity to learn a side skill to be able to earn extra money while in the ministry.  It is amazing what they learn in the class - how to fix microwaves, tv's, even our printer the other day!

Lunch time - rice and chicken!
