April, 2016

Dear Colaborers,

Greetings from Texas!  We arrived in Weatherford, Texas April 19th for our furlough.  Our last furlough was 2007-2008.  This time we are traveling without our sons.  Halbert, Edgar, and his wife Alexandra remain in Honduras.  Steve will be living in the Dallas Fort Worth area.  We have already been in several churches. Please pray that we will be able to fill our schedule, raise the needed funds, and that we will be a blessing in each church that we visit.

Thank you for your prayers for our recent Youth Camp.  We had classes on how to win souls taught by a Honduran Pastor and myself.  My father, Missionary Harold Priday taught the boys a special class each day and Missionary Miss Shelley Grimm taught the girls.  We had a different preacher each night.  We praise the Lord that we had fifty-seven in attendance.  Two days, we held a mini vacation Bible school in a poor area outside of the city.  Praise the Lord that we saw six saved there.  We also have had several saved after Camp in the mission work.  We also praise the Lord for all who gave special offerings to help the teens pay for their camp costs.

Please pray for the work as we are away.  Goodbyes are always difficult.  All the responsibilities were assigned and the work will continue!  Different pastors will be preaching each week and my father will be checking on them and helping them.  We have about six ready to be baptized.  We praise the Lord for the people’s willingness to serve Him and their desire to see the work grow.

Thank you again for your faithful prayers and financial support.  I will be preaching at the Annual National Fellowship Meeting of the Independent Baptist Fellowship International in May.  Please pray that the Lord will use me to be a  blessing and encouragement there.  We are looking forward to seeing all of you as we travel.  If you are not receiving our emails, please let us know at lesliepriday@gmail.com.    May God bless you greatly.

Yours with Hope For Honduras,

Leslie & Alba Priday
