"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!

Opening our home - in a different way

We always pictured we'd open our home to adopt a child.  Since that failed twice, we've seen God working in a different way.  3 years ago we got to have our nephew live with us until his adoption was finalized.  This month his birth mom came to live with us.  She was delivering another baby and needed a temporary home until the baby came.  

The only thing we asked from her was to be a part of our family - eat meals with us, have devotions with us, and go to church with us.

Baby boy came healthy and mom went back to her hometown.  We're praying for her as she tells us she is now attending church regularly!
