What do you do when 27 people get together???? Four parents and 23 children?? LOTS!!!
The Lockwoods are a family of 14, missionarys in Mexico, and are on furlough through Dec. I met Jaynee, the mom, through this blog. We have been "friends" via the internet since Joel's illness and his entrance to heaven in Jan. 07, and she has faithfully encouraged me in these 4 1/2 years. What fun to meet her yesterday and their family!! We read each others blogs and keep up with each other and we send each other e-mails when we want to do serious girl talk!! I have been blessed with her friendship!!! They continue on their journey today as they set out for Arkansas, then to places like N. Carolina, upstate NY, Michigan, and then back towards California and then in Dec, heading back to Mexico to serve there.
sooooooo, this is what 27 people do.......
play and sing......
try to learn a Spanish song......
but I did not get it!!!!
eat LOTS of food!!!
hamburgers, hotdogs, pumpkin cake,
sugar cookies, muffins and 30 scrambles eggs!!!
and then we give them the best beds in the house.....
you know I am just kidding!!!! I think everyone had a good nights rest,
wherever they slept!!!!
Good times with people that love the Lord!! If you have a prayer list, add the Lockwood family to it!! Pray for travels, for safety, for provision, health, strength, for Daniel the father as he preaches the Word and for Jaynee energy as she organizes and keeps up with shoes and socks!!! ha! She is a super organized gal and does a great job with the running of this trip smoothly!!
I am thankful to finally meet them!!! I love you Jaynee and your family!!!! and Daniel, you forgot about
that workout with the guys!!! haha!!!
