I left after church to travel to the Chesapeake District Conference of the Wesleyan Church. While enroute Kay called with a great prayer concern. Here is an e-mail she sent out at that time.
Hi, Missions Team and Care Group: After our mission’s meeting this afternoon, I found out that there is a military coup that took place this morning in Tegucigalpa, Honduras. Unfortunately, several of my family members (Dad-Cliff, Mom-Bev, Sister-Karen) are in Tegucigalpa, Honduras right now, having attended my nephews wedding last Monday (my brother’s family are World Gospel Mission missionaries in Honduras). They were scheduled to leave out of the Tegucigalpa airport tonight….however, with everything
that is happening, they are not sure they can get out. There is no electricity in
Tegucigalpa and there are tanks and military in the streets. Please pray that my family gets out of Honduras soon, and that the missionaries remaining in Honduras are safe.
Later in the day Kay stopped in for prayer with our friends, the Thakbal family. We just got word that Kay’s stateside family are home safely on American soil again. Do pray for the safety of Minda and all the Kleman family members along with other missionaries in Honduras. It seems like the military leaders would have the government be more conservative that the ousted president. This is a time of transition for the country pray that the work of the gospel may go forward.
