"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!

Preschool Beginnings

I am wanting you to just fall in love with our preschoolers.  I think by seeing pictures you will.  I am just so humbled how God brought this preschool to be.  So many of our books, toys, and supplies come from a dear friend who lost her sweet son.  Little Gavin was my son Beckett's age and friend.  After he passed so many of their friends and family have given things for the preschool in His memory- from the Bibles we read in each week, to the cars we ride in.  Everyday I miss little Gavin being here with his earthly family, and yet how much he has taught so much of us about longing and living for heaven.  So with all he has shared we have such a special preschool full of beautiful things He gave.  And his dear mother, my sweet friend helps us find sponsors.  Most of our preschoolers are able to come to preschool when otherwise they could not have afforded it through the sponsorship program she started and continues.

This year we had all the beautiful supplies and love, but not many kids had signed up early.  I was getting a tad worried.  And we prayed and went around to the neighborhoods and now we are at full capacity and am just can already see God brought the perfect blend of students to fill our class.
Thanks for your love and prayers,
