First of all you might thing this is a funny blog to put on a weight loss site but you know I believe every aspect of our lives has something to do with our weight loss.
The stress of everyday life.
The loss of a loved one.
The disappointments that come our way.
Then there are the:
and God who sees us through all.
THIS BLOG CONCERNS MEXICO AND I WISH EVERYONE COULD READ IT.
My tears just rolled tonight as I read the last two or three days news papers.
One headline read: CARTEL SUSPECTED IN MASSACRE OF 72 MIGRANTS.
These were people from central and south America.
They found the bodies in one room in a house some piled on top of the others.
One who was badly wounded but able to escape told the authorities which gang it was that did that. I fear for this man's life.
Another incident: AT LEAST SIX PEOPLE ARE REPORTEDLY DEAD AFTER AN APPARENT SHOOTOUT ALONG THE HIGHWAY BETWEEN MONTERREY AND REYNOSA. I used to live in Monterrey and travelled that highway alone a lot but it is so much different now.
Reynosa is where I am building the church and parsonage and I tried to call the pastor's mother in law today as the pastor has no phone but the phone was out of commission. It breaks my heart. I have lost contact with them for now. I hope they call soon.
Another headline: REYNOSA SEES WIDESPREAD BLOCKADES, VEHICLES DETONATED. Actually this was supposed to have happened at a bridge straight out my street and into Mexico.
Reynosa is 8 miles from where I live.
Then there were two officials: Mexican mayors killed .
These were mayors of two towns close together.
Another headline: NEVER-ENDING VIOLENCE. Attacks target police, media in Mexico
U. S. pulls diplomat's children from Monterrey.
There are car explosions, so many things.
I could never tell all and besides that they say a lot of things are happening that we never hear about.
We have been warned not to go to Mexico as they cannot guarantee our safety.
PLEASE PRAY FOR MEXICO AND ALSO THE TEXAS BORDER AS SOME BAD THINGS ARE HAPPENING HERE ALSO.
