Giving An Entire Town God's Word!

We've had a very busy past couple of days with some unexpected but exciting changes taking place (I'll write about those next week). But today we had a church activity which everybody enjoyed. We have been given or purchased boxes of the following:
*The book of John and Romans
*New Testaments
Today, several of the people in our church took the day off work to meet together this morning with the goal of giving God's Word out to every house in our town. Daniel had a map of our town (population 7,000 / Houses- about 2,000) that showed each lot so we could mark it off. We formed teams, prayed, and then all piled into the blue van where we had stacked all the literature. Then we just started at the beginning of the map, drove to that spot, dropped off a couple of teams (one for each side of the street), and then continued to the next spot until everyone had been dropped off. Then Daniel would return to the opposite end and pick everyone up. The plan was to continue like this all day until either every house had been given a tract and God's Word or until we ran out of literature. Around 4:00 pm we had handed out every last John and Romans/NT/and Bible and just had some tracts remaining with just a small part of the town uncovered.
We returned to our home for a time of fellowship. The ladies rested and visited inside while the children and men played outdoors (knife throwing, the trampoline, swings, chess, soccer ect...). Then we all ate some sandwhiches and Daniel took everyone home.
Pray with us that the Lord would bless His Word that has been given to each home, that hearts would be covicted and opened to the glorious gospel, and He would give the increase!
Here are some photos of the day...and the post below will have some more :)

Here is Daniel giving instructions this morning before we left.

All of us piling into the van getting ready to go. We recently took out all of the seats in this van and put wooden benches seats around the walls so we could fit more people :)

Eliseo and Josiah were on my team. Josiah was shy at first, but soon wouldn't let me hand out anything because he wanted to do it. :) Eliseo helped me hold my tracts in his hat :)

  1. That's awesome to see the young people so eager to spread God's Word!

    Hey, Jaynee, I have a question (if it's not too personal! LOL!). Do you breastfeed your children? The closest any of mine are together is 18 months apart. I usually breastfeed them for the first year. I know many mothers who do it for much longer than that even!

    God Bless you and your family!

  2. Michelle~ Yes, I do breastfeed my babies...until I get pregnant :) Then during my first trimester between just the pregnancy and the morning sickness, I end up losing my milk, but I do nurse them as long as I can.
    I know that for many woman, nursing keeps them from ovulating, but not in my case. I have exclusively breastfed a baby for 3 or 4 months, end up thinking that I have the flu, then find out, no...I'm pregnant! And I'm never exactly sure when I'm due.
    My mother in law was the same way (she had 12 children and the first 7 are all a year apart).

  3. WOW! That is so amazing! So, you don't even get your cycles back at all as a "warning"!?!?!? I usually get my cycles back when the baby is between 6-8 months old. I'm somewhat jealous of friends that don't get their cycles back until their babies are FULLY weaned! I also have a sister-in-law that gets her cycles back 6 weeks post-partum, but some of them may be inovulatory (? not sure if that's the right word:) )

    They say God doesn't give you more than you can handle and it seems that you handle your situation GREAT!

    God Bless!

  4. Just out of curiousity, what do you feed your babies after breastfeeding-formula or whole milk? I was unable to nurse my fourth child due to her health problems, so I am struggling a little(emotionally) with bottle feeding. Have all your kids been good nursers?

  5. Hi Jaynee and Family
    Thank you, Thank you for the wonderful letters!!! So neat to recieve from sooo far away!! The children wereexcited to read their own ones. The children did a great job, please pass it on that they are learning well! May the Lord bless in each endeavor. You all are truly a vessel of the Lord. What rich rewards you will have to lay at the Master's feet!

  6. Tina~ Most of our babies have nursed very well. Abigail had a problem and though we worked and worked at it, she was below her birth weight at 2 months old, so we had to supplement.
    After nursing, if our babies are not yet a year old, we give them formula, but once they are over a year, they drink regular milk :)
