"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!

Wedding Waiting

Our neighbor's son was getting married. He was marrying a lady from another country.  So, we had never met the bride.  They asked Naiyah to be the flower girl.  And since we had a dress from my brother's wedding this past year, we said yes to be in the wedding.  

It was enlightening.  The invitation said the wedding would start at 2.  It almost began at 4:00 :).  The reception was sat for 30 people, over 60 were there.  I was sweating (literally- it was very humid, of course) trying to figure out how to entertain 3 young ones while standing in a small reception room waiting several hours for food to be served.  Thankfully they were serving bottled sodas, which is a huge treat for my kiddos.  When they were served, they asked…"Wow, are these free?"  

Thankfully, those sodas occupied them for awhile!
