Dear Prayer Partners:

 Thank you for your faithful prayers and financial support.   As we begin another year, we covet and appreciate your continued prayers.  It is our privilege to represent you in Honduras as we obey the Great Commission together.  We hope that you had a wonderful Christmas and New Year.

We ask you to once again be praying for our annual Youth Camp in April.  To be able to have camp with our youth who come from poor homes, we have to help them with half of their camp costs.  Please pray that the Lord will provide these extra funds.  That comes out to about $50.00 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.

We praise the Lord that the elections here went smoothly without violent protests and the losers have accepted their defeat.  The newly elected officials will be sworn in this week.  Please pray that they will serve honestly and that they will fight against the corruption and violence in the country.  We know that the only true hope for the problems of Honduras is Jesus Christ.

During November and December the young people and a few adults practiced hard for our Christmas program under the direction of a new lady and Halbert.  It was a drama and musical combined.  We praise the Lord for their hard work and that it was a  blessing to all of us.  It was exciting to watch them do it.    After the program, we fellowshipped over a delicious Christmas dinner.  We spent Christmas Eve at home and Christmas day at my parent’s house.  On New Year’s Day some of Alba’s family came for lunch.

Two Thousand and Fourteen has started with a busy schedule as usual.  The first week from Sunday to Sunday we had our annual week of prayer.  We have a lesson on prayer each day and then a special time of prayer for a different theme.  Soon we will have a special Friend’s Day with special guests Missionary Oscar Pineda and a group from their work in another area of the country.

Please pray for a young teen boy named Ramon.  He was saved recently and wants to be baptized but is facing opposition from his family who are staunch Catholics.  We pray that the New Year will bring you health and many blessings from the Lord as you serve Him.   Thank you again for your prayers and support. 

Yours with Hope For Honduras,

Leslie, Alba, Halbert, & Edgar Priday
