Any Questions?

Little Nehemiah began throwing up this afternoon and has continued, so I dropped the boys off for evening service and the girls and I are here at home. I smell like sour milk and tuna as little guy wants to snuggle (and lose his lunch) on my lap.
I was checking a blog from a missionary in Romania, and they had a neat idea for a post and I thought I'd try it.
I'm not sure how many people read this blog, but I imagine that maybe some out there might have some questions...about anything...the ministry, the country, the people, our family, our day to day routines ect... So if you have any questions you've wondered about or wanted to ask, just leave a comment here under this post, and I will post the questions and answers in a future post.
Today during morning service, a man walked into church late in the service. He had never set foot in a church before and seemed very burdened and so Daniel and Brother Macario spent some time after services talking with him. He has a very dark past, is very troubled over his sin, and Daniel was able to share Christ with him. I didn't catch him name, but if you think of him, please pray that the Lord will save him.
Here is a picture of Daniel teaching this morning. I always feel funny getting up to snap a picture, so today, I just stayed in my seat, turned off the flash since it was so bright inside, and nobody even knew I took it :) Last month, Daniel taught everyone the order of the books of the New Testament. Now everyone, including us :), knows them....I knew them in English, but couldn't say them in Spanish without thinking about them. Today we started learning the books of the Old Testament.
Friday little Lockwood #11 is scheduled to make his arrival! We'll update you all on that as soon as we can. Thank you so much for your prayers. Have a blessed week in the Lord.

  1. My question is...do you have a name for the baby? :-)

  2. I homeschool but I have 3 children and find it hard sometimes to "fit" everything in. HOW do you do it?

  3. I have the same question. I have three children and can't seem to find enough hours in the day to get everything done!!! How do you do it????? Thanks for any suggestions or insight. Praying Blessings on your family, ministry and new birth.

  4. i'm agreeing with the other ladies! how do you do it all? any books that you would recommend. i have three as well- (5, 2, 8mo.) any tips on teaching with toddlers in tow? praying for your delivery.

  5. Hi Daniel, Jaynee, and family,

    I just wanted to let you know that Cindy and I are thinking about you and praying for you. I have enjoyed looking at the pictures and reading what is happening on your blog.

  6. A few questions for you:

    What is the missionary you are working with/for?

    Is it with a particular religion?

    How is your family supported doing missionary work? Is it strictly donations given to you by friends and family?

    What a tremendous sacrifice you make and at the same time showing what a blessing it is to be open to life!

    I, too, homeschool. We have 5 children and although I find it extremely challenging I do believe it is what is best for our children.

    I see the boys have majority. How do you manage all that energy? Also, do you have any holes in your walls? LOL! We have 3 boys and I'm thinking we need thicker walls ;) If my boys (mainly the 5yo) can't get outside he just drives me absolutely crazy and I can't find enough things to keep him busy!

    What is a typical week of meals for your family for dinner?

    I pray that your birth goes well this coming Friday!

    God Bless!

  7. I am on the best support/helpmates webgroup and was wondering if you are on any and if you would like to join ours.

  8. I'll be praying for you. I took such comfort in knowing you were praying for me, and now it's my turn to pray for you!

    My question: What are the sleeping arrangements for your children?

    Thank you for allowing us to gain wisdom from you!

  9. You mentioned being very tall--how tall is that? I am 5'11" and absolutely love being tall although I don't feel so tall anymore with my older boys outgrowing me.

    I am fairly new to your blog and am "catching up" by reading old posts as I have time (I homeschool my 6 kids) so I was wondering if you were going to post the answers to the other questions or just answer them privately--I'm interested in reading many of the answers.

    We're praying for your family and especially little Nehemiah and Eliseo.

  10. I am new to your blog from smockityfrocks and I have three questions... 1. How long have you been on the mission field?
    2. Do you have a school in any of your work(s) or do you homeschool?
    3. I know alot of our S. American missionaries with larger families hire helpers because of the culture...do you do that or are you the sole caretaker of your home?

  11. I am enjoying your blog -- I ran across it when reading about the CFhusband and his wife's transplant. So I am following yours also and am very interested in how you manage. Are you in a remote area of Mexico....do you have running water/bathrooms in your house? I'm sure your main "occupation" is the care of your children, but are you there primarily because of your husband pastoring a church? Are you with an organized mission group or are you there on your own? Do you have to raise your own support? Where is "home" in the States for you? So many questions, but I am intrigued by your family. I have three grown (married)children, 8 living grandchildren, 1 in heaven and 1 on the way. My parents taught us the incredible value of family, and the older I get the more I realize just how blessed I am to have my family. May the Lord bless you in your ministries there.

  12. My question is for Elijah, who is your favorite aunt? Are her initials JRB? Is her hair blonde?

  13. Well, mysterious commenter, Elijah said that he could either pick Aunt Jessee Rachael Baldwin or Aunt Jacquee Robyn Broaddus...hmmm...tough one :)


We always LOVE hearing from you! We enjoy getting to know our readers as well. Feel free to email us or comment here and introduce yourself if you haven't already. Have a wonderful day in the Lord! He is so good and faithful!
