We fortunately connected here with one of the Catholic sisters who work day jobs to make money and spend all their free time helping the poor. Sr. Ursula invited us to live in her home where she houses volunteer groups and operates a food and clothing distribution center out of her garage.
We landed in Eagle Pass in time for the big Mexican feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe. I discovered the colorful Mexican tradition of marachini dancing. These kids are lined up for a performance :
Marta, a retired Mexican nurse in Piedras Negras (just across the river) received us in her home where she and Sr. Ursula plotted Christmas surprises for the neighborhood kids in the Mexican neighborhood.
