Honduras Update

Some of the chaos seems to have settled down across Honduras, but things are definitely not back to normal. Over the weekend ousted president Mel Zelaya attempted to reenter the country at the Las Manos crossing with Nicaragua. This crossing is about 45 minutes from Tegucigalpa. We have passed through this area many times.
Zelaya walked up to the border as a few hundred of his supporters gathered around him. Police in riot gear blocked the road and a curfew was in effect to clear the streets in that area. Zelaya only stayed a short time and then returned back to Nicaragua. Talks between Zelaya and Costa Rican president Arias seems to have fallen through. So far the Hondurans have stood their ground to uphold and preserve their constitution amidst tremendous international pressure to reinstate Zelaya and his socialist agenda. Continue to pray that this explosive political problem will quickly be resolved.
