"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 violent attack

     Yesterday in the news (we have uncensored news, which means you can see a deceased body, blood, violence pictured) I saw that a 74 year old lady here had been killed by 4 pit bulls.  There were pictures and video and it was so horrible.  Then, when I took the kids to their Bible Club with Church I realized the family was from our small church.  The worship leader's mother- in-law, the elder's mom, and the teens in youth group all lost their grandma and mom in this horrible attack.

     When we got to church the next day, their family walked into the 2nd row. And the father and daughter just kept sobbing.  And i am so sad for them and angry at the dogs and the dog owners.  And as the mom led worship that morning, amidst her tears there was a prayer for their hurt and healing but for the dog owner who is an unbeliever.  I was amazed by their faith in less than 20 hours after losing their mother to a violent attack they were able to pray for this man in their heart ache.

     We are blessed to be a part of such a sweet church and ask for prayers for this family in this time.
