"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!

Thank you, Sister Bea!

For over 25 1/2 years Sister Bea has lived, taught, mentored, cooked, and served at WISE.  We got the priviledge of honoring her last night from the staff, students, and friends here in St. Vincent.  She is joining her husband in Canada at a church he will minister to there.  We are happy they will be reunited and serving and impacting people there, but so many will miss her here.  While we only got 2 months working with her, it is unimaginable to think of all the student lives she impacted over the years! 

We played a game of "Who Knew Sister Bea the Best".  I tried to find things to stump them, but alas her best friend won!  Our current students scored the lowest :)   Then, the staff made a special tribute slide show and presented her with gifts.  And the staff ladies prepared a special dinner.  I got the cake decorating job.  And thanks to a special friend in Haiti...I tried out my skills.  I am not sure how my friend Beth does hers, as 4 hours in this heat later... the icing was dripping...but I guess it tastes the same however it looks!

We will miss you, Sister Bea!
