Honduras update

Talks between Micheletti and Zelaya have been stalled since June. The primary reason is they both have very different ideas on how to resolve the political situation in Honduras. Zelaya wants back in power, and Micheletti and the Supreme Court want anyone BUT Zelaya back in power. However, looks as though talks may be started this weekend. The local paper here in Honduras is reporting that yesterday Micheletti accepted talks composed of the President of Costa Rica, Óscar Arias, and the Vice-President of Panama, Juan Carlos Varela, at the suggestion of the former American Governor Jimmy Carter, to discuss the Honduran political crisis. However, during last discussions with Arias, Arias's primary solution was to put Zelaya back into power. So - if the discussions continue in the same direction, we will continue to be in a stalemate. Daytime curfew has been lifted, but currently we still have a nighttime curfew from 7pm until 5am.

GOOD commentary by Newt Gingrich:

On a happier note - we were able to start back up with our ministry work. We had our mobile medical clinic yesterday, saw 25 patients, and met back up with many of our friends out in Armenia Bonito! Woohoo!
