NOVEMBER 20, 2013

 Dear Friends:

 We want to wish each of you a blessed Thanksgiving.  We thank God for each of you and your prayers and financial support.  We will have Thanksgiving at home with my parents this year.  We are beginning a very busy time of the year with Thanksgiving, Christmas, and special activities in the month of January.  Your prayers are always coveted and appreciated!  God’s blessings never cease.  

We praise the Lord that four were recently baptized.  It is exciting to see believers obey the Lord in Scriptural baptism.   The lady in the picture is the mother of the girl on the far right.  She came to us from another area of the country and wanted to serve in our church and I told her that first she had to be baptized in our church since she had been baptized in a church of a different doctrine than ours.  With unusual enthusiasm she said yes!  

 Sunday the 24th of November is Election Day in Honduras.  They will be voting for their municipal authorities, congress, and for President.  Please pray with us that there will be no fraud, no violence, and that the candidates elected will serve honorably. 

 The youth in the church are working hard on the Christmas program.  Part of them is doing a play and part is in the choir.  We are excited to see their desire to serve the Lord through this.  The program will be December 22nd.    The first week of January will be our annual week of prayer.  Then we will have Vacation Bible School for the children and young teens.  Once again missionary Miss Gayle Sparks will be helping us.  We thank the Lord for her help. 

 We ask you to once again begin praying for our annual Youth Camp in April.  To be able to have camp with our youth who come from poor homes, we help them with half of their camp costs.  Please pray that the Lord will provide these extra funds.  That comes out to about $45.00 for each camper.  We are praying for a special offering of $2,500.00 for this camp.  We need to know where we stand so we can plan accordingly.  If you can help, please contact us. 

Yours with Hope For Honduras,

 Leslie, Alba, Halbert, & Edgar Priday
