Update on Our Preparations!

Hey Everyone! It has been quite a while since we have written (and with as much as I, Katelyn, can talk I know you're all surprised ;). God has been doing some excited things the last couple of weeks and opening some doors to help us be better prepared for St Kitts! Aaron got changed to 1st shift at his job (woohoo!!!!!!!). Now he works mornings and afternoons like a normal person, yay!!!

Mostly Aaron's heart, I was trying to block it out because we love our old small group so much, but God knows how to work out His plans instead of ours. We are very thankful for this new step that will allow us to grow in leadership skills and to expand the circle of our Christian church family.

The other part of our ministry was picking up trash, installing new basketball nets, building backboards and installing them at a park in a poor community and at a school for kids with special needs. 

Our drivers/helpers Andy and Alicia, both VIP's to vet students on the island. Andy and his wife, Jillian, are the reason we became connected with St Kitts!

We hired two Kittitian men to haul our stuff to a court in Cayon and they help …
