Huge Praise!

On June 28, 2009 the small country of Honduras stood up for thier democratic constitution and ousted president Manuel Zelaya who was wanting to change the constitution to stay in power. For the last 5 months, Honduras has struggled to cling to their constitution as much of the world said they were wrong for exciling the president. They were up against most of central america, the United States, and the United Nations. They have had victory in the last few days. The appointed president stepped down early in November, so that elections for a new president could take place November 29, this past Sunday.
God has answered many prayers, and a peaceful election was held Sunday. The winner of the election and new president of Honduras is Porfirio Lobo. I don't know much about him, but do know that he is being recognized as the new president by the U.S., Germany, Japan, Coasta Rica, and many other nations. This is a huge praise and a long awaited answer to see how things would turn out in Honduras. We give God all the glory as many in this nation and Honduras went to the Lord in prayer.

  1. Christine, I am so glad that you are finally going. I feel as though our last visit in May was last week. It is amazing how fast time flies. I pledge to you and it will start feb. b/c teachers have the stretch of a paycheck over 6weeks during the months of December and January. You are leaving in a couple of days, and if I win the loto, then I am coming to visit and give you what you need. But I don't play the loto that much. Will do so on my 30th birthday Feb 27th. yippie. God bless you and safe journey. I look forward to reading your blogs. Natalie
