"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!

1st Annual Vincy Children's Christmas Festival

We saw signs posted around downtown advertising this Children's Christmas Festival.  It is so hard not to go into something with expectations and experience.  The sign advertised a giant Santa, horse rides, games, food, bounce houses, and prizes.  I guess I pictured going to an overcrowded carnival!

We arrived an hour and half late and here is what we saw:

The kids loved they were the only ones in the bounce house!

The giant Santa can be seen in the back.

They had one horse, but since there weren't many - we got to ride!

Here were the 2 games.

Our kids loved it, who knew they would have this and still undiscovered here since it was there 1st ever?

Best part of the day - small groups at our house later that night.  Since we are growing - here is the crazy kids room!  The adults are in the next room studying and talking.
