My Darlin' Wife, Dragn, mentioned to me that she was interested in joining the Church on a Help the Needy trip to Mexico this Spring.
Guess what I said...... and I very Rarely say it to her about what She wants to do.....

Killing of Missionary Rattles Texas Borders
Pharr, Texas -- Mexico has always had a reputation here as a place where things can go wrong in a hurry.
But the fatal shooting of a Texas missionary across the border late last month has reinforced the widely held belief in this region that the country has become a lawless war zone.
The missionary, Nancy Davis, who had worked in Mexico for decades, was shot in the back of the head by gunmen in a pickup truck who had pursued her and her husband for miles in Tamaulipas State.
Her husband, Samuel Davis, piloted his bullet-ridden truck across the two-mile international bridge here, driving pell-mell against traffic on the wrong side of the bridge to evade the pursuers and reach an American hospital. He arrived on the United States side too late to save Ms. Davis, 59.
State Department officials say that 79 American citizens were murdered in Mexico in 2009, and that at least 60 were killed last year from January to November, though an official annual figure has yet to be compiled.
The numbers have been rising since 2007, when 38 American citizens were murdered in Mexico, State Department records show. [...]
The Pharr police chief, Ruben Villescos, said the motive for the attack remained a mystery. He said the men in the three trucks followed Mr. Davis for miles and boxed in his pickup to force him off the road. Several shots were fired, and Ms. Davis was hit in the back of the head.
I have been more than knee deep in the shi-ite in my life. I won't go to Mexico as a civilian. Sorry Darlin', but I hope you see my point. Having you alive is much more important to me than building a shed for somebody I don't know.
Any bodies have thoughts? Hey, maybe I'm out of line here......
Oh, what I said?
