"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!

Completing the Fundraising Tour & Doctor Visits

     After 3 specialists and 4 doctor visits, we have just one left to go for Kensington and she is cleared to leave!  Which is great news, as we just received word our work permits are processed!  Yay, we can head to what is home to us here on earth!

 - We got to vote in the presidential election in person for the first time in 11 years!
 - We got to travel and see so many dear friends.
 - We got to see dear supporters raise over $51,000 extra for the new property!  From huge gifts to a homeless man giving a $1, so thankful for the body coming together!
 - 2 of our properties in St. Vincent look to be close to being sold to help purchase the new property!
 - We got to meet several potential staff families.
 - We got to experience fall/Thansgiving season in the States, which our kids never have and enjoyed (even though 60 degree weather sent us scurrying to put on borrowed winter coats and hats!)
