"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!

Rain Brings Sunshine to our House

It's hurricane season, so we are getting lots of rain.  I was late with school getting any laundry hung out to dry.  Finally got it out, and then forgot to bring it in once dry.  After work, we all came inside and A downpour of rain started that would continue for the next hour.  I was pretty frustrated.  First time all week I had been able to get 2 loads of laundry hung and dried.  Ran outside to just look at the already soaked clothes and vent.  
Then, I spotted our buddy O'Malley huddling under a tree to stay dry from the rain.  I called him in.  What a God moment.  O'Malley had been asking Brice to spend some special one on one time with him.  So we got to play games and snack with O'Malley.  
I Love how if you are looking for it, God's still working even when you get upset or frustrated.  But, we have to make sure we don't miss those times in our frustrations.  SO glad we didn't!
