"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!

Christmas Crash

Kaboom!  Last night  at 9pm a drunk driver crashed into the main school vehicle.  We were so thankful as our neighbors who live below us had just walked into the house seconds before.  If they had been any later, they would have been hit.  We were also thankful the truck was in the driveway, because if not he would have hit the house where 2 families live.  So, thankful all were okay.  

Above is the truck who ran into ours.

Below is our driveway where he hit the truck and turned it sideways.

We were so blessed to have supporters and churches work so hard to raise money for this truck to haul supplies, haul all our students around, and to use for much needed errands.  While we are bummed as this week we were going to use it to carol around the countryside, take the students on hikes, and tour our family coming in around - and the unknown of finding something else we can afford or getting parts to fix it.  The biggest relief is no one was hurt.  

Would you pray for the driver, though? He is a neighbor who witnesses say regularly has almost run them over when drunk.  There is no law here the police told us that you can't drink and drive.  This is scary and we don't want anyone hurt.  After the accident, the man staggered back in his truck and got to drive on home...still intoxicated.  We are praying a way we can reach him for Christ and he can change.
