"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!

New Friends, Food, and Fellowship

St. Vincent actually has a pretty big community of people from Syria.  Since we don't have TV, we don't see the news.  But apparently there is much unrest in Syria.  Please pray for their country and the war going on there.  This sweet family is from Syria.  The boys go to WISE preschool.  Their family owns a shop downtown.  And we have become friends.

Their family invited us to a special place called Tito's not far from us.  It has the most amazing Syrian food.   It is called shawarma.  It is like a sandwich in homemade pita bread with chicken, seasonings, mayo, lettuce, and tomato.  It is a very relaxed environment outside and best of all had a kids playground.  So, we actually got to enjoy adult conversation while the kids played away nearby.
