"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!

This Week Here

This week we are busy getting ready for our new students, staff, and coping.  We have discovered some termite trouble at our house and at the school.  

And Naiyah caught red eye (pink eye) here.  It has been a great lesson on washing our hands.  Her eyes were itching and hurting and I told her she needs to always make sure to wash her hands, as that is one of the main causes of getting it.  At least ten times a day I hear Beckett telling Naiyah, "Did you wash your hands so you don't get that bad eye thing again?"  We had just bought a new thing of handsoap and the next day after we got it, I overheard Brice telling the kids they need to go easy on the soap. It was nearly empty after one day!  And soap is expensive.  I was secretly glad they were being overly zealous about washing their hands, though:)  So, hopefully red eye is gone from this house, at least for a bit.

I opted only to share fun photos of the week rather than red eye ones:)

Sweet neighbor baby Emma turned one!

They really know how to throw parties here - it was a 5 course meal and they just kept letting everyone come from all around.  So fun and sweet to celebrate Emma!
