"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!

Introducing newest WISE teachers: The Keller's

We are so excited to have EK (Errol) and Maddie Keller on board to come to WISE for a year to teach.  Though, they may fall in love with it so much, and hopefully come for longer:)  We have been praying for another couple to come here and teach with us, as Lance and Lisa Brooks leave this summer to get back and be with their aging parents.  And God answered our prayers through EK and Maddie!
They both went to Ozark, though they are younger than us.  Maddie is from Brice's home church of Forum Christian Church in Columbia, MO.  It is funny how God crossed our paths.  Maddie and I traveled to Haiti together and got to be roommates when Brice proposed.  We got to see her heart there for loving people way back then.  Later, we got to witness her commitment in marriage to EK.  And now we get to serve alongside them in the West Indies! 
We feel so blessed by their passion, excitement, and gifts they will bring to WISE.  When I am speaking to the students now, I can't help but get a big smile knowing soon these students will be so impacted through the Keller's here teaching them. 
We also have such amazing faithful, giving, and praying supporters that I would love for you to shower them with your prayers as they prepare to come and serve here with us.  To get to know them a bit better, here is a link to their creative website:
