The current political situation in Honduras changes on a daily basis. However, the effect is barely noticed in the small town of Azacualpa, where the Children’s Home is located. We are feeling only two effects here at Children’s Home.
The first effect is the children’s education. School classes were stopped for three weeks. The teachers were asked by ex-President Manuel Zelaya to rally against the new president, President Michelleti. While no demonstrations have occurred in Azacualpa, most of the town’s teachers have gone to bigger cities to protest. On Monday July 20th, classes finally resumed in Azacualpa.
The second effect we have experienced is that fewer mission groups are coming to Honduras. Two mission groups from Iowa canceled due to the political situation. However, we have had four groups that were able to come and be with us. There is small group from Ankeny, Iowa here this week building a computer lab for the Children’s Home.
We hope that this situation will soon end and we ask for your prayers and support in order to continue the ministry that God has asked us to be a part.
God bless you, Pastor Dago and Dilia Zelaya
