Advocates for Pastor Max continue to work to bring him back to the US legally. Central Plains Mennonite Conference hopes to receive an answer on their petition by mid to late summer 2017. Max has been living in Mexico with a valid visa. His visa requires him to make periodic returns to Honduras. April 6, 2017, when Max tried to return to Mexico, he was detained for 24 hours at the airport and sent back to Honduras due to new rules that do not allow people who have been deported from the US to live in Mexico. His detention was all too reminiscent of the trauma he experiences in his deportation from the US almost exactly two years ago.
Please Max and his family in your prayers!
