"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!

Hard working neighbor ladies

Meet Zinita (not pictured yet) and Joan (below).  Brice can't figure out how I remember Zinita's name. But being a strange person about facts when I heard the "Casey Anthony Case", I recalled how her madeup nanny's name that supposedly abducted her daughter's name was Zinita and thought it unusual.  So, when I met this one, of course it was easy to remember.  And just to be sure...she does not even know who Casey Anthony is!

 They both work for the lady next door.  Everyday from sunup (5:45am)  until 5:00 these ladies are cooking and cleaning in the yard next to us.  They are so sweet to my kids, though I am sure our running in the yard tries their ears.  They cook tons of foods early, then it gets loaded it into a van, driven downtown, and friends sell it from the back of the van in the middle of downtown during the day.  Meanwhile, they are stuck back here washing all the dishes and then preparing more food for the next day.

Here is Joan cooking breadfruit!
