Runaways

This morning at 5:30, Marc's phone rang.  I groaned loudly.  I heard Marc say, "what kids?" and was up dressing.  Karen called to say to kids had runaway.  Nadia had just called Karen in a panic.  It was Jackson and Fernando.  We don't know exactly what time they left, but it was after 4:00 and before 5:30. 

Marc looked in the car.  They were seen at the intersection of the Choluteca highway and the Santa Ana road about 5:30, just as we discovered they were missing.  That is a couple of miles from here.  They were headed toward Tegucigalpa and Jackson was wearing bright yellow shorts.  Finding the kids in Santa Ana is usually pretty easy.  Once they head for Tegucigalpa, everything becomes more difficult.

Byron and Pamela spent most of the morning searching.  With no luck.

It has been a long time since we have had kids gone this long.  We usually find them quickly.

Tonight, we don't know where two little boys are.  We don't know if they are sleeping on the street.  Or if they are hungry.  Or scared.

Please pray for safety.
