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.

The group from Ustick Baptist arrived safely here Friday night. I wish I could write in words what a blessing it has been to have them here with us. The sweet fellowship refreshing our souls; their generousity in meeting so many of our needs; their willingness to sacrifice of their time and money to come to see the field and serve.
It is certainly not anything like a "vacation" here, but I pray that they will bring back with them something far more valuable than the most elaborate vacation could offer.
I know our pace...just our day to day life down here...can sometimes be a bit overwheliming. The heat, the complete physical tiredness you feel at the end of each day...
But the contentment you feel having given your all to serve our Lord gives such an unexplainable joy.
The group has given their all with such sweet spirits, never complaining, willing and eager to help.
They visited and went soul winning with us Saturday morning, helped us clean the church, went visiting in the evening, went to the youth meeting, helped with all the preparations for Sunday service.
They shared their testimonies with the people each service Sunday, brought crafts for our children's classes, ran the routes with us, suffered through a day with no running water, and were still so content :). Oh, how the joy of the Lord is our strength!
They have done work projects at the church, work projects at our home, and the next 3 evenings are helping us put on a VBS for the children of our town.
We are so glad they came and how we will miss them! But we just rejoice and thank the Lord for bringing them here and pray He blesses them richly and that we may be a blessing to their lives as well.
He is so good and faithful!

"Thank you for Daddy, Mommy, Uncle Samuel and Brother Carlos. In Jesus name, Amen" :)
I looked through our photos to find some of the girls in the jumpers I've made...Here's one of Susannah
Another jumper...okay, this one has buttons and I am terrible at button holes, so since it just slipped over her head, I sewed on buttons w/o making holes :)
This has nothing to do with jumpers or girls, but Noah who is watching me type said, "Put a picture of me up! :)"
And this is the only picture I have of Beka in one of the jumpers I made her. I've finished 2 others and am working on a 4th. I'll try to remember to take some of the others later :)
Thank you so much for your prayers!


  1. you did a great job with the sewing. I especially like the fabric you used for Beka's jumper. I have a Becca (as we call her) too but she is much older:)

    I'm so glad you are having a good time with the group that came and that a lot is being accomplished! I love every update you post and have been following your blog for a long time!

  2. The jumpers are really cute! Good job.

    I was glad to hear that all is going well with the group that came to help!

    I pray that you'll have a blessed week!
