"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!

Ladies Retreat

This past week 2 of our long supporting churches were here from Bachelor Creek in Wabash, IN and Elizabethtown, KY to help out at WISE.  It is always such a blessing to have churches come see where they are investing, meet the students they are helping, and get to know them better as partners in this ministry.

And one of their gifts was their ladies speaker, Linda Mirante, who came to lead a retreat here for the ladies of St. Vincent.  What a blessing to be refreshed and strengthened through laughter and teaching.

We made banners 

and bracelets together.

These are my neighbors, moms of my preschoolers,

and sweet friends.

And they had brought 21 in their group, so their 14 men kept all the kids entertained while we met.

Several of the guys just rocked babies for the night.

Then we bused everyone home, which took about an hour as some walked far to get here.

And on the way home, the ladies asked if we could do this every month, I wish:)
