"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!

So few people

There are 4 Christian churches form our brotherhood here on the island.  One is Georgetown Christian Church we pictured below on the Atlantic Ocean side about an hour from us.  Another is Arnos Vale Christian Church, which is located at the campus of WISE.  The third is below:

Fountain Christian Church

All of these churches were started or are now pastored by WISE graduates.  Brother LLoyd pictured at the front is a past graduate and ministers to the congregation there.  The 4th we have yet to visit but will. 
 It is always a joy for us to visit them and meet them as they serve and minister in congregations and yet also have full-time jobs elsewhere to support their families.  It is rare for churches in the Carribbean to be able to pay their ministers if much at all.  It also saddens us as we are not looking for mega churches, but everywhere we go we see so many people on this island.  And they are so kind, yet they are not in the churches.  They greet you and yet go about their usual daily work of cleaning, working, and existing.  We just keep praying that a revival can and will happen here.
