The End

We have decided to end The Deputation Trail, but don't worry we have started a new blog! We will leave The Deputation Trail up as long as we are allowed. We enjoy looking back at all the things the Lord has done to lead us to this point! We are now in Brazil. Yesterday marked two weeks since our arrival. The Lord has done so many wonderful things for us since we have been here, and we want to share as much of it as we can with you. As time permits we will be adding to our new blog Lockhart Life In Brazil. Please come over and join us!

Sending Service

On February 28, 2010, Maranatha Baptist Church, our home church, had a sending service for us. We had a great evening. It was hard to say goodbye to everyone, and we are so very thankful for the sending church the Lord has given us.

Pastor Camp asked Dr. Scovill to pray a dedication prayer.
After the service we had a finger food fellowship. Below are some pictures of us saying goodbye to some of our friends at church.

The Lord has certainly blessed us with many people who love us and pray for us.

Valentine's Banquet

Our church had a Valentine's Banquet the week before we left. They are always such fun!

A House In Brazil

This post was originally started a couple of weeks ago. Although we are already in Brazil I still wanted to put it up.

Jeremy and his dad went to Brazil for a week and a half at the end of January. Their main purpose was to get the house in order for us when we arrive.

This is the front of the house from across the street before any work was done on it.
Our living room.
This is the laundry area and the back room.
The space between our house and our neighbors. You can see our new windows.
Our water tank. It is gravity fed. The city will turn the water on every other day for a couple of hours in order to fill everyone's tank.
Our new front door.
The front of the house with the new windows.
Our covered porch.
Inside the house looking at the front door.
The bathroom.
The Lord has done so many things to provide this house for us. We were originally going to rent a house because we plan to move in a few years to a different city of the Lord's leading. The Lord provided this house at such a good price. It was cheaper for us to buy this house instead of renting a house for 2 to 3 years. The house is across the street from the church and the house of the Brazilian pastor and his family. It will be such a blessing to have a place of our own that we are able to modify however we wish and also sell when we move.

Allie's Birthday

For Allie's 4th birthday she had two little parties. We had a cake for her with her Pawpaw and grandma, and then cupcakes at grandpa and grandma's house. We can't find all the pictures we took, but thought you would enjoy a few!

Bethany's Birthday

I'm finally getting around to some more posts. First is Bethany's birthday. She turned 2 on November 19, 2009. We were so thankful that Jenny offered to have a party for her at their house. Since we have been running around for some final meetings on deputation we didn't have time to organize a big party. Hope you enjoy the pictures!
