through my sister's congregation who travels from Iowa to provide volunteer service here.
Ysidro and Marta, the lay couple who lead this group, were very busy during our Sunday visit, so we were grateful we had dinner and conversation with them at Hector and Myrta's earlier that day.
We stopped for some grocery shopping at the huge "Bodega" store in Piedras Negras before crossing the border. It was a warehouse-style store with groceries, electronics, clothing and everything inbetween. Lots of everything, including pre-Christmas shoppers!
The border crossing is always interesting to us. We got through faster this time, fortunately, though we still stalled idling in bridge traffic for 20+ minutes. Tomorrow's post will explain some of those dymanics.
