May you praise the Lord with us for the great things He has done and continues to do as we serve Him sharing the gospel here in the little town of Cuidad Insurgentes, BCS Mexico.

A Busy Blessed Week Ahead

Everyone is very excited over here at the Lockwood home. Why? Because tomorrow, Daddy is picking up a group of 19 people who are flying in all the way from Idaho! They will be here an entire week and we are so happy to have them here.
They will basically be on the same schedule we follow...work projects in the morning (before it is unbearably hot), a rest time for a couple of hours in the heat of the afternoon, and then minstering to the people here for the remainder of the day.
They are going to help us paint and do some maintanance on the building we just rented to hold services. In the afternoons, they will be helping us put on a Vacation Bible School for the children in the town. We've done this every year with the help of Americans who have come to visit, and it is always a wonderful time.
Today was spent gathering supplies for their stay and cleaning up the church. Daniel picked up some of the brothers and sisters who wanted to help get everything ready, and we spent the later afternoon working at the building. Daniel is still there now with our older boys and some of the others as they are working on the plumbing.
Daniel and I are especially excited about this group because their leader/Pastor was our youth pastor in California when we were teen-agers. We haven't seen him in about 10 years, and he was a tremendous blessing to us back then and we know he will be now as well.
Please pray for us during the week ahead. Pray that this group will arrive safely, that the Lord will protect and sustain them as they work, that the Lord will work through them to minister to others, and that He will bless and work in their lives too.

Eliseo's all smiles lately. His eyes are a lot like Benjamin's eyes and almost close completely when he smiles. :)

  2. Hi, I just recently found your blog and have been following your daily activites very closely. I too am from Idaho, so your post on Idaho folks has really peaked my interest. What area and church are they from? I hope the visit goes well and they accomplish much during their stay.
    Your North Idaho fan,

  3. Paula~ They are from Ustick Baptist Church in Boise. :)

  4. That's awesome! I'm from Idaho also (Lewiston)...wish I could be there to help! I will be praying for everyone though!
    God Bless!

  5. I'm so excited for this week for y'all!! :)

    I pray your work will be blessed and the VBS will go well too.

    What church are you sent from? What association? (WBF, BBI, etc)

  6. Jaynee, all of your children are beautiful! They all have great smiles! Glad to hear that Daniel is on his road to recovery and back to his normal self.

    God Bless!

  7. Walking by Faith~ Our sending church is Millville Community Baptist Church in Millville, CA. It is an Independent Baptist church.

  8. Prayer Warriors in WA~ Thank you for praying! Daniel is doing great! The doctors are amazed and we just continually praise the Lord for His healing and grace. He's said he's about 90% or more recovered...just a tiny bit jaundiced and not able to do heavy work, but improving each day!
