"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!

Special friends along the way

How I wish I was better at remembering our camera at every house we get to visit and see dear ones.  But, I'm not.  Here are ones people sent us.  We miss home in St. Vincent, but have been very grateful to come back to raise support, be in a few weddings, and see so many familiar faces.  We wish we could have seen everyone who supports and we love, but only had limited time back here.  We're sorry if we missed you.

Our dear friend and supporter Steve married  sweet Beth and we got to be there!  Steve has supported us in huge ways and he and his new wife asked friends to donate to help WISE instead of receiving wedding gifts.  We were so hunbled by their giving hearts.  Here was a picture at their wedding dance.

My only brother got married, so now my 3 sisters and I gained another sister!
Catching up with old friends is so refreshing.  Even more so when they are our old youth kids all grown up!

Cousins are so much fun!
