"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!

Family Fun

Brice's sister and brother-in-law gave us their vacation time and decided to visit us 2 weeks ago!  So, here they are.  We feel bad as they have been serving all day long and helping out.  So we all tagged along on the group fun day.

The Long family came from Texas.  This was a rare treat as not many people bring their kids and they brought theirs (3 kids 3 and under:)  Our kids really enjoyed playing with theirs.

Special cousin time at the waterfalls

Turtles at the pirate beach are so fun to pet.

One of the murals painted by Tierra, Ribinson, and Jamie at the preschool bathroom.   If you could have seen it before this area for the preschool was just an overhang and garage, so it is really special to see it transformed.

Our new shape tree by Mrs. Donna.

Special friends sent some money in honor of their sweet grandson and our son's close friend that went to heaven when he was only 2.  So with their help and my mother-in-law donating paint, and the group, Tierra, and one of our students painting they it is beautiful!

Here is a friend from Ozark College days, Westin Williams, teaching the students as an adjunct teacher for 2 weeks.
