"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!

Merry Christmas from us!

     Someone we know here was talking about how for Christmas they wish they could afford a tree for their family to decorate in their home.  I immediately thought.....not just a tree you need, but a special Christmas dinner, a few gifts for your family, and some stockings.  How can I pull this together in 2 days?

     And then he cut me off and said, "But we don't need a tree because we got the biggest gift already...God's love in His son Jesus."

     No matter what you are going through or missing, we are praying that you are filled with God's love in knowing His son this season and all the time!

     We'll head to Christmas Morning service at 6 a.m. as is tradition here and then read the Christmas story together and enjoy ham as a family.  We're especially thankful to have extra family this year when homesickness sets in since my parents were able to come for the week and our friend Andrew is here with us through the season.
