Dear Pastor and Church:
We appreciate your prayers as we travel reporting to our supporting churches and visiting new ones. The Lord has kept us safe as we have been in Texas, Indiana, Georgia, North and South Carolina since our last letter.
We have several goals for our furlough time. Above all we pray that the Lord will use us
for His honor and glory and that we
will be a blessing in each church we
visit. We pray that the Lord would call
more missionaries to Honduras. Also,
we are happy to get to see our family
and friends again. We need to raise
more support so as we report to our
supporting churches we also pray that each one would increase our monthly
support. If you are able to do that we would appreciate it very much. We count
it a privilege to be your missionaries
to Honduras. As we visit new
churches, we pray that they would begin supporting us. We praise
the Lord for those who have already increased our support and the churches
that have started to support us financially.
We ask every church we visit to back
us with your prayers. Your prayers
for us and the ministry are immensely
Reports from Honduras
are good. Alba’s Father recently
celebrated his 90th birthday!
We praise the Lord for his health.
The first week of October my Dad taught our annual Men’s Conference with
men from three churches. It is very
important to reach and train men in the churches. Also, our son Halbert organized a seminar for
those wanting to be counselors at our upcoming Youth Camp. We praise the Lord that Countryside Baptist
Church of Mansfield, Texas has sent $1,000.00 for Youth Camp.
We praise the Lord
that so far $1460.00 has come in for the vehicle
to take back to Honduras and use on furlough. It is a Nissan Rogue. The bank that loaned us the money and has in
the past explained that laws have changed and now when we take it out of the
country it becomes an unsecured loan and the interest rate will increase. Please
pray with us that the Lord will provide the funds to pay it off and to pay the
shipping and to pay the Honduran import taxes by March. We are asking sixty churches to make one
payment of $460.00 between now and February. If the Lord leads you to make a payment,
please send it to the IBFI Mission Office and designate it as car payment.
We are looking forward to seeing all of you as we travel. If you are not receiving our emails, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are trying to change to email only newsletters. If you prefer us to mail you a paper copy, please let us know. You may call by telephone to 817-341-9158. Thank you again for partnering with us to take the Hope of the Gospel of Christ to Honduras. We wish each of you a blessed Thanksgiving and a wonderful Christmas celebrating the birth of our dear Savior. We are spending Thanksgiving with friends in Charleston, South Carolina and Christmas with our family in Oregon. May God bless you greatly.
Yours with Hope for Honduras,
Leslie and Alba Priday
