Earlier this morning, Nasko, our field directors for Global Action, and I were in our every other week team meeting online and were sharing prayer requests at the end.
Gloria Fernandez, our director in Honduras, shared that the community she and her family live in, La Lima, is under major attack by gang members, who are demanding a “war tax” from local businesses to operate without interference from the gangs. Failure to do so has cost the lives of several in the community, at least 15, including a family that Gloria has purchased fruits and vegetables from, a mom and her two kids!
Pastors are driving through the streets, praying for safety on loudspeakers. Legal authorities so far have just now started taking action. This afternoon the military has rolled into La Lima to try and restore some safety and order. But ultimately this is spiritual warfare, and we need your prayers, for protection, for God to intervene, for the violence to stop! Pray especially for protection for Gloria and her family and that the church will come together in unity to stand against this.
And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people. ~ Ephesians 6:18.
