Welcome! Nuestra Casa Es Su Casa ...Our house is your house

A glimpse into the life of Daniel and Jaynee Lockwood and their 12 precious blessings. Thank you for visiting; we pray that what we share here may always bring glory to our wonderful God and Saviour. 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. He alone is good and faithful!

Family Fun :)

Another week has gone by and while the group has returned back home to Idaho, we thank the Lord for the blessing of their labor and enjoyed getting back into the routine of things as we continue to work and serve and even play together as a family.
Wednesday, we went to the church building in the morning to clean up and sort through the things the group left here for us. They left us more tracks and Bibles to pass out; several coloring books, crafts, crayons, and markers to use with the children here; and they even left us the puppets!
They also left bags of clothes/shoes/sheets that we were able to take along with the left over food and some tracts/New Testaments to a group of workers from the mainland who are renting a large building here in town to live in while they work.
The rest of the week Daniel worked with Brother Macario continuing to teach him as they went visiting and soul winning together. The children and I spent a day catching up on house work and laundry and now everyone is excited about going to the states!
We plan on leaving early Monday morning and will be up there about 17 days. We are all so excited to see our family and friends, and Daniel will be sharing in the churches in our hometown area.
Please pray for safety as we travel and that we will be able to serve and share the gospel while we are there.
Yesterday, it was very hot, and after all the chores and work of the day was done, Daddy came home and declared it to be "time for a cool activity". We just love having fun together and we just had the best water war. I had little Eliseo and the camera, so I was technically "off limits" from getting soaked, but little Noah continually snuck up to my back and poured cups of water down it. :) Water war, watermelon, 11 children, Mommy with a camera and a way too fun Daddy = LOTS of smiles! :)


  1. Sounds like great fun!!!! I am so excited that you all are getting to go see your family and friends. How special. I am so thankful too that the Lord has carried you through your trial and Daniel has mended and your family is continuing to be used of the Lord. Tell all hello!!!

  2. I will be praying for all of you as you travel and visit with family and friends.


  3. When do you think you guys will roll into town?

  4. We plan (that's the key word...PLAN...we'll see ;) ) to leave at 5 am Monday so we should get across the border by Tuesday sometime. We might stay a day or so in Southren CA because Daniel's Driver's License has expired since we were last up and there is a DMV right there in Chula Vista where he can take care of that. I think he's scared of me driving pulling the trailer all the way north :)
    He has to take a physical too because he has a class B license, so we'll need to find a place to get that done.
    We hope to be in town no later than the 3rd, Lord willing.
    Can't wait to see you! Praying for you and your sweet little baby each morning.

  5. I'm so glad you are getting to take a trip home to visit. I know you are looking forward to it. Drive safely and enjoy. What a sweet, sweet family you have. God is so good.

  6. I just wanted to comment about your family and ministry. I have your blog on my favorites and I have prayed for your family. I'm 28, married with my 3rd baby on the way. My husband is a family practice physician and we look forward to doing mission work. Your life is so encouraging to me. Thank you so much for sharing Jesus in a REAL way and for allowing others to be challenged in their walk with the Lord. Your life is a blessing to me.

  7. That looks like fun. I like how the kids got muddy!! You should see our dogs get muddy its really funny! When Josi gets wet she runs at 20 mph and she really zooms by us when we're watching her!!
