"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!

Special Times - Special People

We have lots of groups come, but not many bring their children with them.  So it was such a treat for our friends from CO to bring their whole family.  Our kids loved the time with them and we were thankful to have friends here!

We did our 1st Kids Klub at WISE with a "Birthday Party" for Jesus celebration!  Thankful for Villa Heights coming to partner with us in all the work here.  Their leader Justin was Brice's roommate in college and he and his wife have faithfully supported us for the last 9 years, so was great to have them both come share here!

A local church, Ruby Christian Church, came out to have a workday at WISE to clean and ready the dorms for the new students.  How encouraging to have their partnership!

We went to the prison (yes, even our kids) and put on a program for the prisoners.  We were thinking caroling outside of the cells.  But, they had us in an auditorium and do a 45 min program for the prisoners.  At the end Brice spoke a few words and said, "God sent to his son to a dangerous world.  I have 2 sons.  I would never put them in a dangerous place.  And yet God did, because He loved us so much!"  We all had a good laugh as not sure you could get much more of a dangerous place than a prison for your kids:)

Villa Heights sanded and varnished beautiful chairs for the classrooms.  So our student Sis Anne came and sat for us.  We are ready to have our students back and praying as they are making preparations to come!
