Our Kona Life

In case you’ve been wondering, here’s what our life is like…

We wake up here…

We eat in this building three times a day…starting with breakfast every morning at 6:30.

Here are some of the sights we see as we walk the boys to school…

The boys start school at 8. They are all three in different classes with kids from all over the world. One of the friends Lucas has made here in his first grade class speaks English as his third language.  School is definitely a challenge as they study the character of God, learn to hear and recognize Gods voice in all aspects of their life, and keep a journal of their days. They are also learning much about Hawaian culture and all the things that live and grow here.

Jon and I spend our days here…

Yes, it’s a tent, and we are very grateful for the ocean breeze that blows through! Every morning we have teaching until lunch. The afternoon sessions are different depending on the day and include worship and intercession, couples date, family outreach, small groups, and on Fridays we have family connect time at the school.

Evenings and weekends are mainly free and feel like normal life…laundry, errands, homework, cleaning house, and did I mention laundry?¬†image

After two weeks here, we are starting to adjust and settle in but still enjoying the new things we get to see and experience!image
