The focus of the news has been on Afghanistan as of late. But you may recall that last summer there was turmoil in Honduras as the country’s president, Jose Manuel Zelaya Rosales, was ousted. Since then, the situation has remained mainly peaceful, but at times uncertain. CURE has a hospital in Honduras in the city of San Pedro Sula, which we opened in January 2009. The husband-wife duo of Daniel and Ruth Castro serve as the spiritual and executive directors of CURE Honduras. Just a few days ago, they shared some of their thoughts on the current situation in their country and how it has affected the hospital.
We’d be most appreciative if you’d keep Honduras and our hospital in your prayers. Also, please keep Afghanistan and our facilities in Kabul in your prayers as that country prepares for the next round of elections on November 7.
