Things are relatively calm here in Trujillo. There have been disturbances in other places in the country, but not much has changed here. Stores were running low on supplies while the road was blocked, but it was open for a while this morning so things should be restocked soon. People are nervous about the future and how it will impact their family. They worry that their sons (as young as 14) and fathers will be pressed into service with the military. Everyone is wondering what will happen when the ousted president returns this weekend.
We have a group from Washington state working here this week. They are doing a great job in the perimeter fence, building a new sink for the kitchen, putting in a ceiling in the prekinder building and digging a trench for a new water line. While we are keeping an eye on things and making plans in case the political situation deteriorates, life is continuing on. Little Hands continues to serve the community and the families around us.
Please do pray for the people of Honduras and for a quick solution to the problems in the government. If things take a turn for the worse, it could make our situation here very difficult. Right now, Trujillo is still the safest place for us to be. If civil war does break out, please pray for wisdom and clarity in the decisions we will have to make.
