"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!

Staff night Out

    We do a lot of special fellowship times with our Bible College students and our preschoolers, but it is so rare to get all the staff together and recognize just them.  This week some some friends and adjuncts volunteered to watch our kids for a special night....which meant, we could get the staff together and treat them to a special night.

10 Adults + Studying Moses = 10 Plagues

    With a group visiting this week and all of them wanting to help in the preschool, our little one roomed preschool was full.  And that did not even include 20 munchkins.  This week in Bible we were studying Moses, so having all those adults meant we could each have a station for the 10 plagues!

At each station we would talk about Moses asking Pharaoh if he would let the people go, and at each one they shouted, "No, he wouldn't let them go!"

At my station we saw God's power through Moses' stick turn their water into blood.

Then, there was the plague of darkness.  Yes, it was all very homemade and used what supplies we had to work with:)

This station they crumpled paper into hail balls!

This station in the netting there were tissue paper flies covering all, kind of hard to see from the picture.

This station all the animals got sick and died.  Several volunteered our pet dog for this, but thankfully we had some play ones in the preschool to use instead.

This station combined the locusts buzzing and the plague of the gnats and lice.

Here the boils covered their beautiful skin.  I missed getting a picture of the frogs leaping over each other.

Lastly, they colored blood over their houses to save themselves from the final plague.  

How fun to have extras help bring our Bible stories to life.  Seeing the kids really understand God's love to save his people, but to also understand punishment from a hardened heart was so powerful.  We continue to pray that all will know God's love and be rescued as He longs for us to be!
