"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!

When it Rains, It Pours

Yes, this is our house.  Preparing for a big weekend of starting school, we all slept great and awoke to 2 inches of water covering the house around us.  A toilet pipe had busted and run all night long.

Pictures of rooms after everything was cleared out.

Students came and helped, as well as teachers.

It was all hands on deck!

There were so many huge blessings:
1. It is rainy season and have not even been able to hang our laundry to dry, but on this day it was sunny!
2. Dear friends helped, made us laugh, and got us KFC for a lunch treat!
3. That night from 4-8 we had a back to school bbq on the beach with our students and staff, and it was such a fun time of getting away from the clean-up and just worshipping and playing!
