"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!

Sharing Christ's Story with our Community

We started late.  Baby Jesus (aka Baby Emma in our play) arrived halfway through the play, exactly the spot in the play when he was born.  Our preschoolers were shy, one too scared to go up front, one sick, and several arrived too late to participate.  Over 30 kids from Kids Club arrived 2 hours early to come see the play. 
Chaotic?  Loud?  Precious!  Humbling.   A Savior was Born to US! 
Here are some of the preschoolers, still waiting for the other half to sing "Away in a Manger."

Our students performed the Christmas story for the community.  They did so well portraying it.  So proud of all their hard work- memorizing lines, passing out flyers, and handmaking their own costumes and sets!

Some of the crowd pre-performance.

Mrs. Maddie's dance class did 2 wonderfully choreographed songs for us.

More songs and dance from the preschoolers.

The students led us in worship songs.

We pray and grieve for the tragedy in Connecticut,  and are so thankful for all our blessings. 
(Disclaimer- my nephew I am holding has on red pants, so I am not pregnant, just looks like it:)
