A Church in Matamoros
Saturday I went to Matamoros with Bob and Rose Hendry and Nelson and Mabel Zoet. We had been invited by the Community of Christ Church in Matamoros. The purpose of the visit was to bring donations to the church so they can pay their taxes. It seems the Catholic Church does not have to pay taxes but all others do. Fair or not it is the way it is. There were about 30 of us gringos and many of them had been there many times before. The small congregation was very glad to see us and had made many preparations for us. We were entertained and fed in fine fashion and there were prizes for everyone.
Pictured above are the visitors presenting blankets and school supplies to the congregation.
