"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!

Adoption Love

If you missed this news, our family has had a little boy living with us for the last 2 and half months.  He lived on the streets with his mom and she could not longer care for him, since he kept getting sick.  So, my sister and brother-in-law fell in love with him and started the process to adopt him. 
And....what a blessing my sister got to come this week (thanks to all the grandparents for watching her girls) and spend time with me.  I love having my sisters as my best friends.  And I am so loving the time to have her close to chat.  But, I also love seeing her and her son together.  Here is the reunion at the airport:

 
We were blessed at her lawyer visit today and it looks like prayers for him to go home with her at Christmas may happen!
