"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!

A Really Great Graduation

What a special time.  Hard to believe I have taught some of these kids for 2 years now.  I will miss them, even though I was ready for summer break! 

So many have helped these kids visiting groups, teachers Mrs. Maddie, Mrs. Pam, and Miss Marisa.  Last year we saw several of our students go on to schools and now are at the top of their class, whereas their siblings struggle in their classes not having started out with preschool and really learning their basic foundation.  So, we are pleased we get to help giving them a good start.

Here they are singing their sounds for their letters.

Each student received a special award, from most huggable to most active to best behavior.

Afterwards we had a special cookout and carnival.  Our intern, Alexis, brought in a suitcase full of prizes and games donated by Lifetrack Christian Church.  It brought lots of fun here.

Each Bible College student ran a booth.  The fishing booth.

Musical ABC's was a favorite.

Water balloon toss fun

And there were long lines for Miss Angie's face painting.

So much fun with the bubbles.

Ring toss

And finding the hidden marble.

And our friend Charles brought his horse for all to ride.

What a special fun time.  The Bible College students told us they had never been so worn out.  Together with Sis Claudette they barbecued for all, decorate, and ran games all evening.  So thankful to serve with this team here!
