Greetings from Honduras,
The Lord has been so good. We have had a high attendance with new people and the Lord has give several salvations.
Last week the young people went out on visitation, there were ten and they give out 176 tracts visiting with about 80 people leaving tracts with homes where no one was present.
Mother's day was a great blessing. Nathan played his guitar and the rest of the youth sang for the mothers. The men also had a special with another playing the guitar and then they cooked lunch for the mothers.
Nathan is teaching one of the teens to play the guitar so we can have more music for church. He also led one of the visitation teams and helped the men with the Mother's Day activities. He will be through teaching school in Honduras June 22 and will be preparing to continue his college studies in Weatherford, Texas.
I preached on Faith Promise giving in our Spanish supporting church in Texas and the Lord blessed with the alter full. We thank the Lord for using us wherever we are.
We are in Fort Worth, Texas doing Doctor exams in preparation for Lena's double knee operation to be performed June 6th.
Please pray for a successful operation and a speedy recovery. She hopes to return to Honduras in four months. Please pray for our travels, welfare and expenses.
We Praise the Lord for your prayers, sacrifice and concern.

Dear Friends,

Again we must say we are very grateful for your prayers. We have experienced tragedy and blessings.

Thank you for praying for youth camp held during Easter week. Satan fought us very hard. Bro. Polo's car broke down so I had to make a trip to pick up the youth from Iglesia Bautista Victoria. I took a small trailer and went after them. There were ten youth in the pickup, six in the cab and four in the camper with their luggage in the trailer. Moving slow across the main highway with the green light, I could see from a distance that a pickup was coming very fast and was not going to stop for his red light. He hit the pickup hard. We praise the Lord and are grateful for your prayers. The Lord protected us in that he hit the rear axle/wheel. The heavy duty four wheel drive pickup absorbed the crash with little damage to us. If he had hit in front of the wheel youth would have been badly hurt or behind the wheel where the rest of the youth were sitting. Only one girl had a bad bump on her head. After the police investigation we went on to camp and I taught my first class at 8:30 am on time. It was a great camp with seven saved and a good number surrender their lives as well as some repenting.

WONDERFUL SUNRISE SERVICE. Our three local churches gathered together at 4 am outside looking to the mountains where the sun would rise. There were about 70 present for the two hour service. Leslie was the invited preacher. Sunday evening services before preaching we had testimonials from the youth . The new leader for them will be taking them on youth visitation.

Today Lena counseled a lady who had just been threatened by a man with a very sharp machete who told her he was going to cut her into pieces if she resisted. She is a Christian and God sent another man and the man threatening her ran away. Lena saw her crying and went to her to see if she could help and was able to console and pray with her after counseling her. We thank the Lord for opportunities.

Please pray for the surgery on Lena's knees. In May she will have double knee replacements. We need the Lord's guidance and healing hand. Please pray for the financial needs. I know He hears your prayers.

Prayer update
We praise the Lord that we have some to baptize tomorrow. We thank the Lord that we have a beautiful place out among the trees to baptize.
It was exciting to have a mother and her child in church Wednesday after receiving the Lord as her savior. Her name is Estela, please pray for her.
Last week we had a great time with our young people at our house with a bonfire, hotdogs, marshmallows, with games and a good Bible message. Today we will take our young people to meet with two other churches to fellowship and be challenged. Lena is doing a great job with the young people.
We are still praying for the lot for the mission work to build on. Please pray with us for the lot, the money to pay for it. We are still waiting for each to send in an offering so we can purchase the lot. The Lord does not have a place of His own, we want to build the Lord his own place of worship, a place we can organize the church in.
Thank you for your prayers,
Harold L Priday

Exciting times for the mission work. This was the first time for a full Christmas program and it was wonderful. It was a first time for dramas and we had quires singing form our own children, teens and adults each. There were only two empty seats, such wonderful blessings.

Great testimony and witness.
There were testimonies of souls saved and spiritual growth. We were all praising the Lord for a great year.

Helping other missionaries, Mike, Halbert, Leslie
We were not only busy with the mission work but we were involved in helping with the deaf, helping missionaries Mike Rudd, Halbert Priday and Leslie Priday. We were involved in checking on a house in the missionaries absence, Helping with a leadership program and preaching in another church in the absence of the missionary.
Saturday, feed dogs, take leaders to retreat.
Last Saturday we were up at 5 am, prayer, Bible reading, 7 am took care of Mikes home and dogs, 8:30 am picked up leaders to take to a remote area for a leadership workshop. I couldn't make it with the car the road was so bad and had to take our 4 wheel drive pickup to take supplies to them. In the afternoon we had the youth meeting in the mission work, a busy day and then that evening I make the photocopies for Sunday school classes.

We also have a ministry helping children go to school. This year we will be helping Aniel go to school. Please pray with us for Aniel as he goes to school. He is the most faithful child in our church and the son of Nelson who teaches the adult Sunday school class.

Please continue praying also for roof repair on our house, leaking very badly over our bed and has to have a complete roof replacement. We ask you to pray also for the lot for church. This is a great need as the owner of the house we rent has the house up for sale.

We are greatly troubled as the electric has doubled in cost and our insurance greatly increased in cost along with everything else our support is not covering our expenses.

Thank you for your prayers and help,

Harold L Priday

Greetings from Honduras,
I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. We had a very nice one with two of our grandchildren and Edgar's wife. It was cold enough to have a fire in the fireplace and we played games after the delicious, wonderful meal that Lena cooked.
The weekend before we were ask to do a family conference in La Esperanza, Intibucá, Honduras. The pastor was in our first home Bible studies when we moved to La Esperanza 36 years ago, he was a child then and now he pastors the church where we gave the conference. There were about 70 in each of the classes with good response.
We praise the Lord for the new family that visited in the mission work in San Francisco, Siguatepeque. The Lord continues to bless in many ways. We certainly enjoy the new auditorium as the attendance grows. We are praying for another Sunday school teacher to help out.
We are expecting to hear from our churches as we pray for the lot we need to have to build on. The owner has reduced the price as she would like it to be for a church. The owner of the house we are renting is trying to sell and we need to be prepared to move. We are praying for $20,000.00 to secure the lot and pay the legal work and taxes that would have to be taken care of. I know you are praying with us about this and I know you want to have a part in giving the new mission work a permanent place to meet with the Lord.
Thank you for caring,
Harold Priday
your missionary to Honduras

We are pleased to report that the work is going very well. We have two new families attending and one of them is cleaning the church today.
We thank the Lord for the souls saved and changed lives. because of maturing lives and growing Sunday School we have enlarged our Sunday School to another class and added a new teacher.
Today was an exciting day. I got up early to repair a water line that was leaking at the church and found out it had to be put off until later. I then was ask to take a load of leaders in training to the retreat sight in a remote area.
After that we were ready to go back to the church to repair the water line when a man walked up to see me. He was the son of a Honduran man who had worked with us for several years as a missionary in the remote area of Honduras 38 years ago. Eli is now also in the ministry helping reach out to out laying communities of La Esperanza. I had only seen him once since he was a very small child. I took him with me and we had a very nice visit as we worked.
Prayer request. Yesterday we were offered a lot at a reduced price to build the church on. Please pray with us that we might have a permanent place to build the church on. The big obstacle will be raising the $20,000.00 to purchase it.
Thank you for praying for our health, ministry and Honduras.
