Leave cold weather behind for a week-long voyage in the Southern Caribbean. Basseterre’s volcanic past seeps into the present at its black sand beaches, and its fruit is so sweet thanks to its rich soil. Sip punch made with fresh citrus and you’ll immediately be a fan. While its beaches and diving are quite enticing, the curious can discover the island’s interior, lush with history. Colorful Willemstad boasts 35 beaches and a downtown area that’s a UNESCO World Heritage site. Most citizens here have Dutch passports, but you only need good walking shoes to explore Punda, a neighborhood of floating markets, shops and sidewalk cafes. Since this itinerary is roundtrip from San Juan, there are so many inviting options within easy reach, from gorgeous beaches like “Escambron” to 500-year-old historic forts. Do not miss the opportunity to roam the vibrant streets of Old Town with its mixture of architecture and authentic restaurants.

Guest Speakers: Dr. David and Terri Sumlin

The Sumlins are co-founders of Marriage Life Ministries and authors of the Marriage Innovators Workshop®, Intimacy of Marriage®, and Oneness of Marriage® series designed to help couples enrich their marriages through the application of biblical principles and adventure-based learning. They both have served over the last 15 years as international marriage educators, retreat leaders, pastoral counselors, and conference speakers.

David and Terri’s unique approach to marital enrichment is built upon some of the advances found in neuroscience, psychology, physiology, and adventure-based therapy, which were then tested through the lens of God’s word for validation. The result is an Adventure-Based Marital Enrichment model that helps couples derive positive behavioral transformation and increased levels of sustained learning.

David is a graduate of Dallas Theological Seminary for which he earned his M.A. and Doctorate in Marriage and Family Ministry. David pastored a church in Houston, Texas before founding Marriage Life Ministries. Terri is a graduate of the University of North Texas and served a 23-year teaching career before joining David as a full-time marriage educator. David and Terri will celebrate 29 years of marriage this year, have two adult children, and currently reside in Houston, Texas.
