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!

Random thoughts

Tomorrow I'll be flying to the USA with little Eliseo. The house is clean (is it hard for anyone else to leave home with the house not clean...I know it's so silly especially since people will be living in it while I'm gone but I just wanted it to be nice before I go), recipe cards made up, chores and school work assigned, and a wish list written up of little treats to bring home. I spent the night playing with the children; we made up and recorded a song that kept me laughing so hard my side still aches. :) I still need to pack, but that won't take long as I'm only going to fly out with a carry on. They are now charging per bag that you check in so between a carry on, purse and diaper bag, I think we'll do just fine. This year, a friend of our family got us set up with a phone that works via the internet; we even have a USA phone number, so I'll be able to call Daniel and the children often.
Thank you so much for praying. I'm praying especially that the Lord will give me the opportunity to share Him with someone as I travel. I'll keep you all updated from up north.
I want to again thank those of you who are praying for our church here. We had a sweet weekend serving together. Several of the ladies came to help me clean; Alma, my girls, and some of our Sunday school girls went soul winning with me; our church purchased a large bus as we are working new route areas; Daniel's brother returned from visiting home for Christmas and brought back several new hymn books.
What a blessing the hymn books are! A couple years ago, we were able to order a small handful of them, but as our church has grown, there has never been close to enough for everyone. Of all the Spanish hymn books we've seen, this was our favorite, but while several hymn books make a small version with words only (no written music) for a cheaper price, this one doesn't.
When Daniel called a couple of months ago inquiring about purchasing a few more, the lady told him that they'd had a misprint on a entire lot of them and the last 11 of the 630+ songs did not have the correct music. These were being offered at only $5 a book! The lady said that the publisher's mistake has turned out to be a big blessing for many missionaries. :)
Daniel just got home from counseling a couple, so good bye computer :) I'll leave with a few pictures from this weekend.


  1. "Lord thank you for this dear friend. For her loving family. For them giving their all and going forth to not only preach the gospel but to live it"

    Jaynee~ you are such a dear friend and of course we will be praying for your trip and lil' Eliseo.

    Since Miss Grace has had this surgery twice we know exactly how to pray for him, you and the dr's.

    I'm sure the Lord has some lovely people out there for you to meet and introduce to Jesus. I wonder how many times you'll be asked, ever so sweetly if Eliseo is your first child :-) That's funny just thinking about it.

    Good night and keep us updated to how your travels go and how surgery went.

    And yes I feel so much better leaving everyone with a clean home too~ See you're normal :-)hee hee

    Oh and if you ever need someone to chat with, with your new fangled phone, give me a call :-)

    Hugs~ Cinnamon

  2. I always leave home for a trip with a clean house. the kids think I'm crazy, but I love the fact that the house is clean when we walk in the door after being gone for a time. I am praying for you to have a safe trip, many opportunities to share the Gospel, and a successful surgery with quick healing for your little guy! God bless you!

  3. Will be praying for your family. I would love to know what treats your family is hoping for that is hard to find in Mexico. Blessings,Sj

  4. Jaynee .. I pray your travels to be safe and smooth, your time sweet, and protected by the Lord. And I pray for the family back home. I've been married for 31 years, and my husband still doesn't understand why I must tidy the house before a trip! I guess it's a woman thing!

    Godspeed and successful surgery!

  5. Jaynee,
    Praying for smooth travels! Your whole family will be in our thoughts in the coming days.
    What hymnals does your church use? If we can find them, our family would love to bless your church with some:-)
