Pastor Hector and Myrna sheltered us in their church's apartment several days of our Eagle Pass stay. We felt connectedness to them--a sort of congruence that comes when you feel like you're on the same page with someone. Myrna treated us to many wonderful meals in her home, like one of the family.

While there we also met the advance team for an upcoming mission trip from Austin, TX Gethsemane ChurchWe enjoyed new friends Cal and Kent, and if we ever get into the work of heading up mission trips here, I'll keep them in mind for tips.
We all shared a great seafood meal at a Mexican restaruant.

At St. Lukes they run a little food pantry, and we assisted with the sorting and distribution of Christmas toys to the poor as well as helping with yardwork. They also have a sister church in Mexico called Christ the King which I'll write about in tomorrow's entry.

The border crossing here from MX back in to TX  is a bit of an ordeal; we waited in line 30 minutes and the border guy ID'd Pastor Kent (maybe because he sports a beard?). Apparently the fed's cracked down on  this crossing for being too loose, now they are making up for past transgressions. More on this later.
