"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!

Volcano or Beach Day?

      Living on an island in the Caribbean has its perks.  So, when midterms come and we get a day off  the choice was go to the volcano or the beach. Since the 2nd years have been to the volcano and it is a bit of a drive, the kids, Pam, and I took the 2nd years for a beach day.  Since the beach is not too far from our house I think the students all thought the ones getting to hike the volcano were getting the better day.

     We talked, caught on lives outside the classroom, swam, built sand chairs, kicked the ball around.  And then Bro Paul talked a guy into letting us go over in a boat to Young Island.  It is a resort island that is extremely expensive.  Bill Gates once rented the entire island out for his employees for $10,000 a night US Dollars.  So, we got to ride a boat and look around, see some parrots, and pretend we were guests for a bit.  This class definitely thought they got the better end of the deal by the end of the day.

      The 2nd years went with Bro T, Bro Dave, and Brice up to the volcano.  This is 2 years in a row all the students make the climb!  Bro T said he has been waiting 35 years to make it happen.  He finally did!
