Dear Pastor and Church:
We write with heavy hearts. Last Sunday were the elections here in Honduras. All went well and was peaceful. But, the race is so tight between 2 of the candidates that they are still counting votes. Hopefully, they will finish tomorrow (Thursday the 30th).
One of the candidates is the current President who ran for reelection, many feel illegally. The other candidate joined his movement with a leftist party in hope that they could together do what individually would be impossible: stop the President from being “illegally” reelected. They are sure they won because Sunday at midnight they were winning by 5%. But about 35% of the votes were not yet counted then.
They are threatening protests if they do not win when the results are announced tomorrow. Things would definitely go violent.
So as you meet for prayer tonight, please pray for this situation and for the peace of HONDURAS. We truly believe in prayer and today has been declared a day of prayer among Christian churches in Honduras. Your prayers will be very appreciated.
Yours with HOPE FOR HONDURAS,
Leslie & Alba Priday
