"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!

Easter - New Life

Chrisandra has been my friend for forever it seems like.  One of my favorite parts of the week was always walking to her neighborhood (she lives in the governmental housing down by the airport), chatting with her, catching up, learning about her life, and praying with her.  

So many would wonder how the girl does it.....17 now with 2 small boys.  3 neighbor kids orphaned by AIDS that are often living with her.  A 10 by 10 foot home.  Having a mother who was always drunk and still trying to keep others safe from her abuse.  And yet....never has she complained.  And she is always smiling.

When at first she wanted to start taking classes to learn about becoming a Christian, after a month of study she said leaving the night life of partying was too hard.  Living with her boyfriend and the life she was living didn't line up with what God talked about.  So, she said it was too much.  Then, after much prayer and crying hard......she came to Brice and said......"I'm ready to live for Christ!"  

Love this sister!
