"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!

Starting a Thanksgiving Tradition

Since this is our first Thanksgiving here in St. Vincent and they don't celebrate the Pilgrims landing here, we had to create how we would celebrate here. 
 
 
We still have school on Thanksgiving Day- both at the preschool and the Bible College.  Here are 2 of our students helping out one day. 

 
Our Thanksgiving dinner consisted of the Keller's and our visiting adjunct, Vance.  The best part for me was each of us sharing around the table what we are thankful for.  But, finding turkey here and Maddie's pumpkin pie and pecan bars were a close second!

 
And of course, we have to throw in some American baseball!

 
Who doesn't love Mrs. Maddie?

 
We had to go get some things for the upcoming Christmas program from downtown. We had no clue here too they do "Black Friday Shopping".  But, here you only got the 15% off discount if you were wearing black.  So glad I wore my black skirt today.  Unfortunately, Maddie's black purse did not count for the discount.


 
And then we had to get some food from the street vendors.  I got the chicken and chips (fries here).  Maddie, being more adventurous, got the shark and chips.  They were both so yummy!
