"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!

Muffins & Kids

The street we live on is filled with families.  So, our family decided to make muffins to take to some of the families and get to know them a bit.  Few of them go to church, so we thought this was a good way to introduce ourselves and open the door for a relationship. 
To our left is a family that works at the mission that has a daughter near Naiyah's age.  Below our house lives a lady that has a daughter also our daughter's age.  But, then mostly everyone else on the street has boys and do not attend the church!  So we can really relate with the boys!  I am not sure how the muffins went over with them, but we had lots to talk about with boys.  Most of them had one & stopped as boys can be a bit of a handful in the early years...we understood.  But, also here it is a lot more expensive the more kids you have, as it is anywhere.  So, most just have 1 or 2.  We are probably an oddity:) 
We ecspecially enjoyed meeting the Asian family down the street, they too are from a different culture and fairily new to St. Vincent.  But, also they have a 5 month old son who is way chunkier than Pax.  Which here is unheard of as every baby is tiny, so we enjoyed meeting them too.
