Political Unrest

Yesterday on the way back from SPS to take my parents and nephew to the airport, we found out that Mel Zelaya was back in Honduras, hiding out in the Brazilian embassy. We're currently under lock down with the curfew, that suddenly started yesterday afternoon about an hour before we made it back to Trujillo, still in effect. From the reports that we have heard, there has been some violence in the capital where Mel has asked his supporters to come. Here, things are relatively calm. We're staying close to home, but hope to get out tomorrow and stock up on some food essentials in case things take a turn for the worse. We are thankful to have our water filter up and running again, so drinking water is no problem. We continue to have problems with little or no tap water during the day. (There has been so little rain; this is a problem for most of Trujillo.) Please pray for a peaceful end to the current political unrest. Pray for a quick resolution and protection for the many innocent people already suffering in this country. Pray that we will continue to be a light to those around us.
