"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!

A Week Full of Love

Grandma Jackie came back for a visit!

We got invited to our sweet Syrian friend's b-day party.  They had so much cake and a unique tradition.  Andree turned 4, so he had to cut the cake with Naiyah and him holding the knife.  And then, they each had to feed each other a piece.  I am not sure if we did not just commit to an arranged marriage:)

For Valentine's our sweet helper Ms. Marshall made heart pizzas for "Red Day" at preschool.

We got to make special crafts sent from sweet sponsors.

The number heart hop was super fun!

One of our sweet moms made us a pinata to break open.

Getting us all in the pictures was a little challenge.

Lunch was rice as usual.  But the surprise was lunch at WISE was red, pink, and white rice.

We got and delivered Valentine's from each other.

We served a special Valentine's dessert to widows and widowers.

Our students were great servers.

And Bro. Dave gave a great message on the history of Valentine's with Christians to end the great evening.
