Rio Grande, TX RV – Weekly Report – Mar 2-6, 2020

April 1, 2020

This week we were pleased to welcome 3 new couples to our MDS family: Chris and Rod from Pretty Prairie, Kansas; Jan and Brent from Devon, Alberta, Canada; and Elenore and Sieg from Steinbach, Manitoba, Canada.    Bonnie and Todd from Texas, and Rita and Ken from Iowa remained from January and February.  Pete and Loretta from New York and Debbie and Joe from Michigan remained from February, which gives us a total of 7 couples!

This week the crew accomplished a great deal at Guadalupe’s house! Bonnie, Todd, Rod and Chris finished installing shingles.  Sieg and Elenore installed exterior trim.  Joe, Debbie, Sieg, Elenore and Jan finished installing the siding as Rita cut pieces on her favorite piece of equipment, the chop saw!  Ken and Brent worked on installing plumbing, vents and drain lines and water lines.  Pete started mounting electrical panel boxes and started running interior circuits. 

  We had lots of time to get to know each other this week!  As always, on Sunday, we all enjoyed going to church and out to lunch together.   We attended Cowboy Church in Santa Rosa which is about 20 minutes from our RV park in Weslaco.  Interestingly, the message at church surrounded the theme of “service”, service to God and others!  We enjoyed a delicious lunch and fellowship together at Golden Corral. 

On Thursday evening we ordered in from a local restaurant and had dinner together in the office trailer.

We had fun joining others who live here at Country Sunshine RV park on a 2-hour River Boat Tour of the Rio Grande River on Friday at the Riverside Club in Mission, TX! It was a beautiful, sunny day for a boat ride!  We learned quite a bit of history regarding the River, being a border between Mexico and US, and viewed many homes, parks and resorts along the way that were particularly on the Mexico side of the River.  After the boat ride we enjoyed lunch together inside the restaurant at the Riverside Club.
