"Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor. For if either of them falls down, one can help the other up."  Ecclesiastes 4:9-10

 

In January, we asked you to join us in prayer as Honduras’ Congress discussed and voted on important electoral reforms that AJS had proposed. Join us in thanking God that Congress passed several new electoral initiatives last week. These initiatives are a step in the right direction toward bringing justice to Honduras’ election system. Still, justice work can often feel like “two steps forward, one step backward” and not all of our proposals were approved. 

  • Please continue to pray for perseverance and wisdom as we keep working to reform this important system. We ask for similar prayers for our ongoing involvement in two commissions charged with reforming the Departments of Health and Education. 2019 began with the President’s selection of new Ministers in these departments and we pray that these leaders will also act justly with wisdom and perseverance.

  • Finally, join us in praising God for an answer to a yearlong prayer! In January 2018, we asked you to pray for the removal of an outrageous law that made it very difficult for Honduras’ Attorney General’s office to investigate government officials’ corruption. Honduras’ Supreme Court just declared the law unconstitutional and we hope that paused corruption cases will soon be restarted. Please pray that the desire for justice will reign in authorities' hearts.

Ultimately, we send these prayer emails for the same reason we work to keep the Honduran government accountable - we believe two are better than one! This belief and your faithful partnership motivate us to provide constructive criticism to Honduran institutions and help them better serve the Honduran people. Thank you!
