Final update before we leave

Update 2: Daniel and the children arrived safely around 4:00 pm this morning. My dad is taking me out to where we'll all be staying in a bit. :) Thank you sooo much for praying for our safety as we traveled separately.
Also, I was able to see the doctor yesterday...looks like I will be staying here for a while. I'll post about the appointment later.

Update: I arrived safely at my parents home late last night. Daniel and the children are about 2 hours south of the US border and should be here late tonight/early Tuesday morning. I'm waiting for the Dr. to call back with my appt. I miss my hubby and babies but am so thankful the Lord has kept us all safe thus far. :)

Again, I just want to thank you all so much for praying. I wish I had the time to share how the Lord is so clearly leading thus far. When I get overwhelmed with the countless details that lie ahead, He so gently reminds me how He's cared for us so far...every little detail. I am reminded of how He's taken us through trial after trial...and oh how much He loves us! I just need to trust and rest in Him.
This is just a quick update before I unplug and pack up the computer. Tomorrow will be a busy day as we pack up, hold our special Christmas service/fellowship meal, and then immediately leave to take me to the airport. I will not have the computer with me as I cannot lift very much. I'm bringing my purse and Noah lent me his backpack so I could bring my Bible and a change of clothes to tie me over until Daniel arrives with the children and the rest of our luggage.
I am not sure when I will have internet access next, so do not worry if you do not hear from us for a while. The Lord is holding us in His ever merciful, loving hands. We do appreciate your prayers and have been so encouraged by each sweet comment and email sent. God bless you for blessing our "little" :) family.
Daniel called a while ago and told me that they were able to pass out most of the Christmas shoeboxes and will pass out the rest tomorrow to the children who come to the service. Pictures and update will be posted as soon as I am able!
Well, it is late and I need to oversee the packing for 13 (soon to be 14) people for what may be an extended stay. How do you do that while on bedrest? :) The Lord is so good! May you all have a blessed day in Him! And if you don't hear from me beforehand....MERRY CHRISTMAS!!! love, Daniel and Jaynee, Timothy, Elijah, Rebekah, Benjamin, Abigail, Isaiah, Josiah, Noah, Susannah, Nehemiah, Eliseo, and Baby Boy :)


  1. Jaynee,

    Not sure if you'll get this, but you might try visiting:


    to find a physician. This site is a listing of pro-life physicians that do not believe in contraception.

    I hope and pray that you have safe travel and that you have a safe and healthy delivery of your new son!

    God bless!

  2. God be with you. I have always wanted to write and tell you that your relationship with God is such an inspiration to me. I have recently returned to church from a much too long leave, that well I could make exuse after excuse for but its because I was too lazy to go! Your blog and watching how you spread the word and how your entire family spreads the word, especially Daniel trying to bring the people of Mexico to the Lord, has been such an eye opener for me. So even though Daniel not once preached to me, this blog touched me deeply and has helped lead me back to the righteous path.

    I pray hard and I pray lots of times in a day and your name is always in them. I pray your little son will be born healthy and happy and that you stay that way too. I know it must be emotionally and physically trying to have a high risk pregnancy, I have been there myself, but God saw me through it and if he can see a sinner like me through he surely can see you through,a good Christian woman.

    I have written a lot, I am sorry for that but I just wanted to tell you how much your family has touched me.

    Peace be with you always and my the Lord continue to bless your family with each new day.

  3. Continuing to pray for you and Baby #12, Jaynee! Look forward to your next update, whenever it might be.

  10. Jaynee, I have been out of town for a couple of days, so just caught up on your latest updates. Even as I type this, you might be on your flight north. I'm praying that you and Baby have a good flight,and arrive safely in the States today. I'm so thankful that you made the decision to travel home, to where you will have the care that you need very close by! Will be watching for updates when you get a chance! It is good that Daniel has his brother with him to help transport the family. I will also be praying for safe travel, and eleven happy and content young travelers!

  11. Jaynee,
    God bless you & the family as you travel. I am praying for your little ones as I am sure they will miss their mommy over the time they travel up north.
    God was so good to have Daniel's brother available to trave w/ him and the children.
    Merry Christmas!
