"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!

Grenada

WISE partnered up with our home church in Ft. Collins, CO where we first were married and ministered.  Their new youth minister is great and brought 24 willing, excited servants to meet us in Grenada.  We met up with past graduates.  And the graduates had spread the word to help us put on a retreat for area youth.  


During the days they painted and scraped and made this hard working beautiful church even more beautiful on the outside.


This was Naiyah's 1st missions trip to go with daddy and help on.  I think in the beginning she was excited to get out of school for a few days, but then she got to meet so many new friends and help be a part of a great work and loved extra time with just daddy.  We heard Dave Stone speak at a parenting ceremony once that he always tried to take one of his kids with him on speaking trips to get extra time with them,  so this was our first chance we were able to send one of the kids to serve with Brice on his trips.


Naiyah loved that there were other kids to share crayons and books with.


The nightly retreat to recruit future Bible College students and also to encourage the youth their in their faith.


So thankful for a great daddy to teach us and love us.
