7th Anniversary of the Iglesia Bautista de Insurgentes

Our hearts are so full!  We were just privileged and blessed to have our pastor, Pastor Ryan Hollister (pastor of our sending church- Millville Community Baptist Church, Millville, CA) AND Daniel's uncle, Pastor Tom Lucatorta (pastor of one of our supporting churches...Heritage Baptist Church, Anderson, CA) come and spend an ENTIRE WEEK with us!!!

They arrived last Thursday afternoon and returned home yesterday.
Sunday, our church celebrated it's  7th anniversary!  And then Monday and Tuesday we held our 2nd annual Mission's Conference.
Tremendously blessed.  Excitement.   Encouraged.  Counseled.  Fellowship.  Talking late into the night.  Working.  Laughter.  English.  Spanish.  Tired.  Exhausted.  Saying Good Bye.  Sadness.  Happiness.  Full Hearts.

Here is a video we made for Pastor Ryan/Uncle Tom to take home with them as a rememberance of their time here.  It's made from pictures taken over the past week.  

I know it's a bit long, but thought I'd share it in case anyone wanted to see it.  :)
(The man that looks like Daniel's brother (according to all our people here) is Pastor Ryan and the dear other man is Uncle Tom)

Wednesday night at prayer meeting, Pastor Ryan got up to share with our people.  As he was speaking, Susannah started sniffling.  I looked down at her and she had tears in her eyes.    She had just realized that Pastor Ryan/Uncle Tom were leaving to go home the next day.  I held her close as she sobbed.
It's hard to say good bye to someone you love so much.  Pastor Ryan and Uncle Tom love our family and love our church here and we love and miss them, too.

I told Susannah we'd make them good bye letters and give them little gifts.  Then Daddy said we'd ALL go to Loreto to take them to the airport!!!   After many hugs and watching until they boarded their plane, we all drove down to the beach.  Daniel and I sat together hand in hand watching the children play while we talked.

It means so much to our family and to our church that these dear pastors sacrificed so much to come.  
I took pictures of each of the children with their Pastor and Uncle (you can see them at the end of the video).  I told them I'd print them up so they could keep them in their Bibles to remember how much they are loved and prayed for back in the USA.

  13. Hi Lockwood Family,
    I am a friend of Cindy Morris, and saw your name in her comment section. I clicked on your name today and I'm so glad I did. I watched your video of your 7 year anniversary. I just wanted you to know how it blessed me to see that video. I smiled the whole way through it. My heart is soooo warmed! Thanks for posting that video. You all seem like such sweet people.
