Daniel- 1.2 Diagnosing

Thank you all so much for praying. It gives us so much comfort just to know so many care so much. And we are clinging on to Jesus who knows what tomorrow holds and who loves us so much. Through all that happens, pray that His precious, sweet name is glorfied. I know Daniel would say the same thing if he were here.
Instead of doing the surgery, they spent the day doing tests...they did all the tests they could do here and decided it is very serious and tonight he is being taken to La Paz...the capitol city which is about 3 hours from us. They will admit him tonight and most likely do a CT scan first thing in the morning. After they get the results from the scan, they will most likely do surgery. The CT scan will give them a much clearer picture of what all they are looking at.
Daniel was given an iv with liquids and vitamins and felt much better getting rehydrated.
I was able to get ahold of Brother Macario who Daniel has been training to be pastor here. He took our van and drove around the town letting all our church people know there will be no services tonight and asking them to pray. It is heartbreaking to tell them; the few people I've told have wept. They really love Pastor Daniel.
The hardest thing for me right now is just being here so far away from him. I know he wants me to be with him, but it does not seem possible right now. Though I have never liked being away from home and the children, my heart aches to be with him, to hold his hand, cry together, pray together, and just be there so he isn't alone. But if the Lord wants me at home...not my will but Thine be done.
I have seen His ever loving hand in so many little details and worries today already. Last Sunday, a little tiny bird fell from it's nest outside our church building right by Benjamin's feet. I told Ben that the Lord saw that tiny bird fall...how much more He sees and cares for us. I know, even though I don't know where, how, why, what ect... , that He does and will give us the wisdom and provide for everything. Oh He is so good and loves us so much.
Before we got to the mission field, life was "easy". Once we got here, our oldest son had a tumor in his spine and had to have surgery and radiation...the Lord healed him completely; we had times where we saw the Lord provide our food meal by meal; He took us through the accident when 2 of our children had 2nd and 3rd degree burns; He took me through Susannah's birth where I almost bled to death from a separated placenta; He took care of Nehemiah through his first few months of life where he struggled for every breath and we thought the Lord would take him; He took us from a 30 ft. travel trailer and gave us a house; and oh so much more...all in 4 years. I know He will bring us through this according to His will.
Each trial refines us, draws us closer to Him, builds our faith, and oh how we pray will glorify His name.
But oh it hurts.
Trusting Jesus Every Day,
Jaynee

  1. Hello Lockwood family,

    I just wanted to let you all know that I am lifting Daniel especially and you all up in prayer. I pray he gets the care he needs and that the Lord will heal him. And comfort you and the children as you wait at home. *hugs* from Jaclynn in Shingletown

  4. We will continue to pray and check back often. You are truly a living testimony of God's love. Though you are going through a trial, God is there on the other side waiting. Waiting to bless you, hang in there, He loves you so! Thank you for sharing and being so open.

  6. Jaynee, do either of you have family that can travel and help? I can only imagine how difficult it must be for you and Daniel to be apart. Praying for the Lord's provision for every need.

  7. Jaynee, I am praying for your husband right now that God heals him completely to be home with you and the children. I know how hard it must be to not be by his side. Is there anyone in the church that can watch the older ones and you take some of the younger ones with you to a home near the hospital? then you can have someone watch them while you visit your husband and they can be close by. I also hope that your family from the U.S. can come to Mexico as soon as they can to help you out.

  8. Our family is reading your updates aloud together and praying. Our hearts are very involved with your family, and we love you so much. We pray that the Lord will give each of your His peace and comfort. "Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; Who comforteth us in all our tribulation" (2 Corinthians 1:3-4).

    We pray for wisdom for the doctors and a way that your family could somehow be close to daddy during this time so that you could be with Daniel some of the time and with the children some of the time. Most of all we are praying that this is not cancer, but something that could be easily treated and recovered from.

    Trusting in Jesus,
    TeriM

  11. Oh Jaynee, you and Daniel and the children are on my heart. We prayed again for you all this evening. It must be so hard to be away from Daniel but you are giving him a tremendous gift by taking care of everything so well at home. He is comforted knowing that the children are so well cared for. That said, I pray that your family will be able to be together soon. Indeed, I also pray that this not cancer. God Bless you and your family!

    In Christ,

  16. Prayers are going up from Iowa, too. I will pray especially for you, Jaynee, for strength and peace. Your blog and family and ministry has been so encouraging to me! I will pray - "Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on Thee, because he trusteth in Thee."

  17. I am so sorry to read this. I just started reading your blog a couple of days ago from a comment I saw on CF husband. I feel like I was connected to you for a reason. My daughter is currently undergoing chemotherapy, she has leukemia. Actually she is in remission, and I feel so strongly it is her innocence, and spirit that has pulled her through this with ease. Keep your faith, stay positive and Daniel can get through this. I wish so badly you could be there with him. If you were anywhere near us, I would babysit for you in a heartbeat. Have you thought about coming back to the states? They may have more treatment options. God bless you all.

  19. Jaynie,
    Even though you don't know me, except for us exchanging a couple of emails, I wish I could come there and help take care of the children so you could go to be with Daniel.
    Praying for you,

  21. Hi Jaynee,
    I have met you before, I go to church with Chuck and Jacquee, and I just wanted to let you know that I am praying for you, your husband, and your family. I can't even imagine how hard it must be for you to not be able to be with your husband at this time. I thank you for your shining example of praising the Lord even at hard times.
    Sincerely,
    Kellie Bybee

  22. I prayed for you and your family today. I had cancer when my daughter was 9 months old, and my heart breaks for you. God showed me through John 9 that it was for His glory, and it is evident from your heart that you are trusting Him and that He will be glorified. I am praying for healing for your dear husband and strength for your family.

    Blessings,

    Joanne

  25. As a Christian mother of 6 children under 9....yes, only 6 =), this really hit close to home. You, your husband, and your children will be in our prayers every day! I am encouraged by your confidence and faith in Christ. You are a true example and I know that God's perfect plan will prevail! My heart longs to be with your children. I wish more than anything I had a way to be there to help! I will be checking in on your blog daily!
