"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!

Hiking to Visit a Student

 
We have always enjoyed being a part of the community wherever we live.  One way is getting to know our students and their families.  Here we are on our way to visit Oreldo.  The path to get there always has lots of snakes sunning themselves claims Oreldo's mom.  My kids were hoping to find some, but this time they slithered off before they heard us coming.

 
Walking with us is Vance Russell.  He came as a visiting teacher.  We are thankful to have him teaching here.  He is also one of the pastor's at my home church and supporting church.  What an encouragement it is to have the support of our churches sending their preachers to help us to teach here.  Thank you, Countryside!


 
Sweet girl helped us find the path.
