"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!

Group Time

The past week was literally crazy and amazing!  We ended up having 4 groups here- we thought 2 were canceling and ended up double booking- so it was a huge "WISE" party.  They worked so hard all accomplished so much!

Our students did such a fun night at the campfire of local songs native to their country.

Our forwarding agents were here for the week - and Sarah's b-day was upcoming, so we all got to celebrate her!

Brice's mom came in for 3 weeks to hang with the kids and was the perfect time to be here to help watch them as Brice and I drove all the group around.

Friends from college came and Andrew taught 2 different "Apologetics" Seminars that so many learned from and loved.

Rosita, our cook, was the real hero for keeping everyone so well fed the whole week.

Matt, who will move here with his family in August, was here and their church helped build onto their new house.  

Photographer Jon Cooper was also here and took beautiful pics of the growing kids!

This week we have a group of 15 high schoolers, so a totally different pace.  They are painting the chapel, which had not been done yet and helping to remove the rubble from the condemned house.

And one praise is we sold one of the properties in St. Vincent.  Still praying for the other 2 to close and sell.

  1. Nice to see pictures of your family. Good to hear that the 4 groups accomplished much during their time there. Received your note today, too nice of you! First time to look at your blog, not too computer knowledgible. Pray for you and am so thankful for your work at WISE. Diane Scholl
