We are approaching 90 days in quarantine. The country is at work in training businesses on BioSecurity and their expectations when they begin opening back up (temperature readings, sanitization, etc.). Also, they have divided the country into 3 different zones. They all have different time frames of opening back up. The larger cities will take longer than smaller communities. Copan Ruinas is zone 2 and they estimate that is will take 45 days to open up completely. Now, the businesses may open up, but that doesn’t mean they will relax quarantine and isolation in our homes. There is no mention of that at this time.
We are continuing our feeding program. Our goal is to identify families in need each week to provide them with food. We feel that this will be an ongoing thing in the future. Our area is known for tourism and the economy is based on that. As businesses open, there will be employment for those, but you still have many hotels and restaurants that will be hindered because of lack of tourism. At this point in time, I estimate another 6 months of feeding will be needed. We appreciate your continued donations, the USA may be opening and the pandemic may be forgotten soon, but that doesn’t mean other areas of the world will still not be feeling the ripple effects.
Sadly, churches are not taken in much consideration with the opening. They mention it, but the guidelines are so complex; you ask yourself, how can anyone attend a church service. Nancy and I are still ministering in what capacity we can. My radio productions are previous recordings, but we hope that we can get started on new recordings next week.
We want to thank all those that have continued supporting our ministry through your financial donations. It has been a massive blessing to us. Thank you for praying and staying in contact. May God bless you and your loved ones!
