"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!

Hard news, beautiful beginning

I love planning, so I thought i had the perfect schedule.  A special family I grew up with had a younger daughter graduating with her preschool degree.  She wrote and asked about coming to help for the next 6 weeks in the preschool. I was beyond thrilled to have her passion, new ideas, and willingness since our other teacher was leaving on furlough early. 

Then, this special girl was in a very bad car accident 3 weeks before her arrival here.  We are so thankful she is healing now, but are sad we won't get to serve with her at this time.  So, we also were in a jam, short one teacher....so Uncle Elton volunteered to come help me out a week!  Our kids were beyond thrilled.  Now, I only have 5 more weeks to get by:)

It was the beginning of summer classes for WISE with Brice teaching Galatians and Ephesians 4 hours everyday, so all of us needed a bit of a break.  So, this Saturday for fellowship we took off to the rainforest (Vermont Nature Trail).  

And this time we heard and saw the national parrot!

I loved getting the extra time to walk with this guy I get to do ministry and life with each day!

And I am so proud of him and looking forward to more time as this week he finishes his last class and receives his Master's in Biblical Leadership from Liberty!

More of this crazy time in life....
