"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!

Caribbean Thanksgiving


I was a bit nervous about making most of the Thanksgiving meal.  Last year Maddie helped do half.   This year we had several visiting teachers and all staff families were coming and another family in the community.
  
When I went to shop for a turkey, they were $65 US!  I picked it up and put it back 3 times and then decided chicken would be just as appreciated.  3 days before Thanksgiving a turkey was left on our doorstep!  Thank you, Lord, and sweet friends.  We all got to enjoy turkey.  And we has so much leftover to share with our neighbors who had several families visiting her and don't often get enough to eat.  And there was still enough leftover to share at the Bible College too!


The girls enjoying friendships.


Baby Jordan was out!


The kid table.


Friends.


And fun fellowship.


Our tablecloth with all of signing what we were thankful for.
