On my status, etc. I told you that I received a call this morning from the lady who goes with me to Mexico and told me about the shoot out. Guess it was the worst in a while. She did not want to go tomorrow as we had planned and others had advised her not to.
I received e-mails from my other teams telling me not to go, received e-mails from Face book. Even received one from a missionary team on Spark. This missionary LADY told me it is even in the news in Africa.
I called Mexico where I go and they told me the shots came close to their house. A gentleman (married) from Monterrey that I have known for years called. My pastor called and said I should not go. I will go later if things calm down.
This has been going on for quite some time but seems to be getting worse. First it was between the drug cartel and the National Guard, now someone said they are mad at us because of the lack of tourists to Mexico.
So now you have most of what I know and I don't know everything. I will try to copy and paste this in a blog for the other teams.
Just hope it doesn't get any closer to the US. As Marcy said people from over here called 911 because it sounded like it was from here.
God bless all of you.
