Las Cruces, New Mexico

one table of the Sunday dinner crew

Sunday morning March 10,  Shannon punched in 'churches' on the GPS. We scrolled through them and chose Grace Bible Church...Go! It was only 1.7 miles from the Walmart we were at. Good thing, because we remembered time change with barely enough time to spare! A small group meeting in a little shopping plaza, we drove right past because we were looking for a specific building. Such a friendly gathering! This was a special service where a chiropractor dad and his son shared about their recent mission trip to India. I visited with his wife in the nursery. Our little girlies were born 4 days apart! They invited us to their home for dinner. What a pleasant afternoon! Six of their children entertained our family well as we adults got better acquainted. We were truly blessed by hearing this homeschooling family's life -so far- journey! They live in the valley surrounded by pecan orchards with 51 trees of their own. Guess what they gifted us with before we left? Yay for more yummy nuts! Double yay for God's sweet refreshment and provision!!
Shannon treated us to pancakes for breakfast!

Monday Shannon made an appointment to have the RV aligned as the tires were wearing funny on the front. We went to the laundromat & consignment shop & park & Tractor Supply while waiting.

Returned to the road after 5pm and drove about 50 miles to Rockhound State Park (after passing through another border patrol check station).
