I’m listening to the song Give Me Your Eyes by Brandon Heath
on the radio driving through Nuevo Laredo, Mexico. That song is so touching and really about what I want to
accomplish in blogging about this trip.
This is my second trip down here, but before my first time,
I had heard so many stories about Casa Hogar Elim. Anyone that had a story would say. “…you can’t put it into
words, you have to go down there to experience it.”
The best way I know how to communicate what an amazing
experience it is and how blessed I feel by being around these children is to
show photos and write a little bit about each one of them.
We are on our way to Laredo, TX to pick up a few pallets of
food donated to CHE. They have a
storage facility there to accept and store donations. It is quite a process to get the food across the border and
to hopefully not get taxed on it.
I’m writing this as we are in a caravan of four vehicles
going to Laredo. JD just got
pulled over by the local police for speeding. Anytime we see flashing lights down here, it’s a little
scary. (that didn’t stop me from
taking a photo… will post as soon as I can download it from my camera) Looks like it’s just a standard
speeding ticket thing. The police
were not fans of all of us pulling over, so two vehicles left to cross the
border. Still waiting to hear from
