"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!

Staff Family Prayers

     Things are going so well with WISE.  We just recently got word from the accreditation that we can now bring in students!  We have been interviewing several staff members to have a full team for the fall!  And there are so many great families we have had interested to join!

     Our family from the get-go has prayed for a family with kids to serve with- so our kids have other kids to play and grow and serve with here.  When we first joined with WISE, that was the plan and our dear friends were set to come with us to serve and we would teach together and raise our kids together on the mission field.  Tragically around that time, they lost their precious son and were not able to join us.

     So we have kept praying for that family to join us.  We recently interviewed and were eager to welcome a family, who had 7 children near our kids ages.  They were so sweet and could tell would be a great addition to the team here.  They had sold their house recently and all seemed great after the visit here, until we just received news the father found he has kidney failure and they will not be able to leave the States now.

     We are sad for the WISE family to not have them and selfishly for our family to have them.  But, we are also praying for their family as they go through this.  We'd love for your prayers for the father's health and for staff here.
