The FESTIVAL OF LIFE and our last day in St Kitts

Image
Our last day in St Kitts was both sad and happy. We were excited to get home to our kids, but St Kitts was starting to feel like home as well. God definitely engraved the island on our hearts. Aaron shot some video footage for the FOL that morning while I packed our bags to go. On our way to the airport we talked with Brandon about our plans and our timeline to move down. We are looking at being debt free and in St Kitts in 2016. We were expressing our desire to be down much faster than that and Brandon reminded us that God can move in ways that we can't on our own. As we parked at the airport and looked up we saw written on the car parked across from us "God Provides." We are praying every day for God to provide a way for us to be out of debt and in our new home even faster :)


We had 3 flights to make it home. St Kitts to Miami, Miami to Dallas, spend the night, and then Dallas to Knoxville. We made it to Miami, ate some dinner, and got settled on our late night flight …

Day 3: Sunday! It's a full day every week in Knoxville, and it was the one day that was pretty "busy" in St Kitts as well. Worship Team Practicing Aaron and I hanging out before the service Brandon preaching the word   Brandon is the pastor at Caribbean Christian Fellowship. This church is made up of mostly students from the vet school and medical schools (however, a new Kittitian family sat right in front of us). We enjoyed this service immensely! We learned all about Acts 18:18-28 and about being "set apart" for God. I loved that he is just preaching the Word of God , no more and no less. We got a chance before and after the service to meet a lot of the students and hear about their experiences living in St Kitts. Its such a neat perspective that we can learn a lot from. We hope that God will use us to invest in the lives of the students on the island as well as the Kittitians.   After church, Aaron and Brandon headed off to play flag football with the Ros…

Our first glimpse of St Kitts!


We finally got to step onto the beautiful island country of St. Kitts. It was breathtaking! From the large mountains to the glimmering sea, it was a stunning first impression. Now before you click off of this post and continue on with something else thinking that we just spent a few days in paradise, please know that this was not a Caribbean vacation :) Right up against the pretty scenery were glimpses of reality that the people who live there do not enjoy the same experiences as the guests of the Marriott or the cruisers exploring the port. Small homes in need of repair, old cars that always need to be fixed, most people walking because they have no other reliable transportation. We were ready to get a real picture of life living in St. Kitts. Brandon Grayson picked us up from the airport and we drove the short distance to his family's home in Bird Rock. They live in the top story of a home that has been separated into 3 apartments. We found out th…
