Many of you have asked about some updated pictures of the house. I've been having some problems uploading the pictures. I will post one picture here and then try to post another one later tonight. We praise the Lord for the continued good progress, safety of the workers, and the opportunities Daniel has had to share the gospel with the men.
It looks like we will be able to move into the house late January to early February. Little Lockwood #10 is due to arrive in about 4 weeks, so we will get to be extra cozy as we add him to the travel trailer for a few more weeks.
We are so joyful to see the continued spiritual growth in the faithful brothers and sisters in our church here in Insurgentes. The Lord continues to teach and work with each and every one and you can see our hearts being knit closer together as we grow together in Him. I don't think a day goes by without us being able to share the gospel with someone...usually with many. Pray the Lord really works in the hearts of the people here and they see their need of a Saviour.
We are planning a special church service on Christmas Eve just for our church family. The children's choir is learning some new Christmas hymns to sing and verses to recite. Hna. Maria stepped out of the van last Sunday night as she arrived at church with a big smile on her face. She walked up to me and said, "I brought a special visitor". I looked up and saw her husband getting out of the van. She had been praying that he would come for months.
Thank you for your prayers for our family and the people here. As we enter into this Christmas season, we praise the Lord for it is only through Jesus and His righteousness that we are able to have a relationship with our loving Lord. He is so good!
