"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!

Partnering with Forum Christian Church

We were blessed again this week to have a group of 9 from Brice's home church to come and serve with us here.  Here we are one night visiting the hospital.  We love going, praying with them, hugging the children there, and painting the ladies fingernails.

Showing off her nails.

The Reach Project from their church got together and made personalized bottles full of love, prayers, salvation bracelets, notes, and snacks.

Loved this- praying over our students.  Keep praying for them in their commitment here.    We were thankful to have the Abernathy family in to help take over Brice's classes for a week.  Brice was gone last week in Jamaica at a youth conference recruiting more students.  Praise- as we have several students already enrolled from several surrounding countries.  Please pray they can get the finances for their plane tickets to come here and support of their home churches.

One of the work projects this week was to extend the office/washroom below into the new preschool.  It is starting to shape together.

They put in the toilet and sink and it worked!

And we discovered some amazing waterfalls- only a 5 min. walk from our house!

God's beauty, faithfulness, and promise showing.
And finally today was the completion of my sister's adoption.  They got his passport!

They got to meet the birth family and thank her for her sacrifice.  Please be praying for her too.

And we also had another family staying with the WISE family while they finalized their adoption.  She is the precious little girl Naiyah is holding.  What an amazing few weeks here!
