John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

Agents Seize Over $3 Million in Methamphetamine at Donna International Crossing

Recommended Posts

By R. Mitchell -


DONNA, Texas – U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Office of Field Operations (OFO) officers intercepted a substantial amount of methamphetamine with an estimated street value of more than $3,000,000 in two enforcement actions over a four-day span.

“I applaud the CBP officers for these two exceptional narcotic interceptions as they illustrate the multilayered enforcement effected by CBP,” said Port Director Walter Weaver, Progreso Port of Entry. “Intercepting illegal drugs from entering the United States and keeping them from finding their way to the streets of our communities remains one of CBP’s top priorities.”

The first seizure occurred on Saturday, Mar. 16, when CBP officers assigned to the Donna International Crossing referred a 1999 Ford F-150 driven by a 40-year-old female Mexican citizen from Rio Bravo, Tamaulipas, Mexico, for a secondary examination.  In secondary, a physical inspection by CBP officers led to the discovery of 38 packages containing over 77 pounds of alleged methamphetamine concealed within the vehicle.

The second seizure occurred on Tuesday, Mar. 19, when a CBP officer referred a 1997 Ford F-150 driven by a 22-year-old male U.S. citizen from McAllen, Texas, and his 18-year-old brother, also of McAllen, Texas for a secondary inspection. Upon a non-intrusive imaging examination and physical inspection, CBP officers discovered 39 packages containing 78.66 pounds of alleged methamphetamine concealed within the vehicle.

The combined narcotics have an estimated street value of $3,123,477.

CBP OFO seized the narcotics and vehicles.  The drivers and occupant from both interceptions were arrested and the cases were turned over to the custody of Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) special agents for further investigation.
