Greetings from Ohio! 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 churches in Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Oregon, Washington, Ohio. In October we will be in churches in Ohio, Michigan, and Texas.
Recently I was privileged to preach in the Norris Bible Baptist Seminary (http://www.norrisseminary.org) where I graduated in 1985. It was exciting to think of the thousands of souls those students will reach in their ministries if the Lord tarries is coming and that we can have a tiny part in that.
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 important .
We want to thank Vandalia Baptist Temple and Eaton Baptist Temple both of Ohio for their offerings for a video projector for the mission work in Honduras. We still need $250.00 more. We praise the Lord we have found a vehicle to take back to Honduras and we will use it 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. May God bless you greatly.
Yours with Hope For Honduras,
Leslie & Alba Priday
