We breezed into San Antonio after a safe trip. Good luck continued when we stopped off at the Mexican American Cultural Center (where Paul studied back in the '80's) and made some immediate promising contacts.


These led us to Sky Cross and the heartening story of a newly retired couple like us who wanted to help the poor and stumbled into a great way to do it.

From there we connected with the Mission Awareness Office and a world of other contacts in Eagle Pass and Del Rio, TX. We'll be following up on them next week.
We enjoyed a friendly stop at Esperanza Peace & Justice, where they use the arts to engender pride in cultural heritage and address issues.

And, as a Presentation associate, I enjoyed our visit to the Presentation Ministry Center--a neighborhood drop-in place for women where Sisters Dina and Jocelyn welcome all with crafts, health and education.

Later in the week we stopped into the Oblate campus, spent some time visiting, and made a fortunate connection with a former pastor of Eagle Pass. Many of our encounters seem to be strokes of good luck, especially since we hardly ever have an appointment. People have taken time for us nevertheless. Everywhere, people encourage and welcome us.

Above all, we're grateful to our San Antonio hosts: Mark and Judy. They've shared their lovely home, their support and friendship with us with hospitality you could not surpass.  
Thanks!!
