"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!

A difficult time

Recently our family went through one of the toughest times in our lives.  For protection of all involved I am not giving specifics.  But, we do ask for prayers.  For many familes and lives involved here.  The board and staff here had to make a hard decision about a staff member who needed to take time to work on things in his life and family.  We ask for prayers for their family, friends, the students and staff, the community, and our family.  We are all hurting and sad as it is a close community.  We feel completely God's leading as we follow His word, but also ache for the hurt involved in all the change. 

In cases such as this so easy to speculate, tell your side, explain, but we want to be honorable and honor the family that is involved and just ask for prayers at this time.
