Zelaya Returns

If you are at all interested in Honduras, you've probably already heard the news - that ousted president Mel Zelaya has apparently returned to Honduras, and is reported to be holed up in the Brazilian Embassy in the capital city of Tegucigalpa.

This came as a big surprise, as things have been pretty quiet lately, and there hadn't even been any rumors recently of Mel's return.

We are all fine up here in Gracias, and we're just waiting to see what happens next. My greatest concern, for the moment, is that the supporters of the ousted president, who have gathered around the embassy, will engage in fighting with the police or military, and that this will result in injuries and deaths. Please pray with us for a peaceful outcome! Thanks so much.

Thinking for the country and all of you working there. Most of us in Haiti for any length of time understand living with an unstable government and not knowing what is going to happen. Fauche-SL

You are in our prayers (as always)--there is an interesting opinion piece in Monday's Wall Street Journal if you can find it online...
Tell Rachel we all love the woven work!

Sorry to hear he's back. Praying for you and the people of Honduras for peace safety and good government. Also that the truth is known in the international community. God however has not fallen asleep, He is watching and tenderly caring for us all.
Much love for you and your sweet family
