The past 3 weeks our hearts and house have been overflowing. Literally. We have had guests staying with us, but it has been so great to have dear friends here. And it does not hurt to have their help at the busiest time of the year either.
We, of course, had to take them to the hospital to pray, play, and read to the children there. Bringing one of our own students provided the best entertainment for the kids.
The all girls picture.
The night before graduation we all piled into the van and truck to treat the graduates to a dinner at a local hotel that let us swim while we were there too. What a treat for us all!
We held the first ever WISE swim race between Guyana, St. Vincent, the United States, and Haiti. I think St. Vincent won!
The kids table.
Afterwards, we came back for a special time of dessert, a beautiful tribute to the graduates through a talented video by Bro. EK, and some fellowship time and speeches.
One of my favorites!

We don't play favorites and love all the students. But, from day one Paxson has loved Jerry so much and will miss him greatly.
We are so excited to see how God will continue to use these graduates to further His kingdom as they travel back to their home countries today.
