Flying Into the Unknown

We are set to leave for the airport in less than an hour. News reports state that Manuel Zelaya left Managua Nicaraugua earlier today and is planning to return to Honduras tomorrow. The Honduran Military is standing guard blocking the roads into Honduras and have orders to arrest him if he enters the country.

He is reportedly taking a caravan of supporters in other vehicles with him and hopes that the military will "stand down" when they see civilians. Hmmmmm. Interesting.

We are scheduled to land in Tegucigalpa at 11:00 am and would appreciate your prayers for safety. We very much look forward to being back at the Micah House, reconnecting with all the boys, and making these final arrangements for our move.

Love and blessings to you all. We'll keep you posted!

My prayers are with you. I feel like it's going to be okay. The Honduran people are remarkably patient even with the current situation. Just be patient with the roadblocks, and try not to be distracted by the graffiti 'round town.
