"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!

A Change of Plans

     I had been having lots of pet-term labor signs, so we made the decision for the kids and I to come back early.  Brice will still be another month in Barbados teaching.  The good news is baby girl is doing so well and while still looks like will come early, she is doing so well now.
     Some different news was my enlarged spleen.  Early tests showed that an infection had not been cleared up.  So, this coming week I will have further tests at the hospital to see and if the ultrasound shows still enlarged, the doctor is referring me to an oncologist.  While it could be something serious like leukemia or a blood cancer, it could also be malaria or something similar as we have been in places with it!

1 - We would ask your prayers for baby girl to wait a bit longer at least until Daddy is back!
2 - For us without Daddy as will be a long month!
3 - Praise for teachers this summer and students as they continue to study and the help in covering while we are gone.
4 - Praise for the new staff joining us!
5 - Praise I have a great doctor and searching for answers and diagnosed this early to get treatment.

Love to all!
