Mission Field: Honduras
Our Missionary for 24 years
We praise the Lord for these blessed times as we see souls saved, baptized and growing in the Lord. A couple weeks ago an elderly lady came and stated that she is coming to stay and wants to be a member. Her family had been witnessing to her and God heard our prayers. We have grown to capacity in our building and ask you to continue to pray for a lot to build a church on. The Honduran people and the government do not believe it is a church until it has a building. We are negotiating on a lot and ask for prayer for offerings to buy and build.
February was our National Ladies Conference. Lena was the speaker. There were many blessings. There was a good number from four churches and they were challenged to be humble servants to the Lord
Every year we have to do a large amount of legal paperwork to keep our mission works, institute and churches registered and legal. We are busy working on those papers now and will be required a fairly large amount of money to submit them. This is always a challenge and we appreciate your prayers.
Our mission work is supporting missions in the department of Intibucá in Honduras. Brother Jacobo and his wife are faithfully reaching the villages and towns in that area where there is not a Gospel outreach. They are preaching in the parks and people from all around come to hear. It is a great blessing to hear the report from them.
Youth camp is coming soon and we need your prayers and special offering for this year. We need to raise $600.00 right away. Would you please pray about sending your special offering and let us know immediately what you are doing so we can tell the campers that they will have the funds to go. The young people are working hard at raising their part of the funds. They are making and selling hamburgers this week and next week they are having a garage sale.
Greetings from Honduras.
We had three special services for Christmas and the mission was full all three times. They were wonderful services and almost everyone present had a part in the programs. Our people are great singers and the spirit was high.
We have a couple of new families taking active parts in the mission, that is a special blessing and a direct answer to your prayers as well as ours.
Thank you for praying for our family. Christmas morning Lena's brother, Leroy, passed away. We ask you to continue to pray for all the family. Leroy's wife is very sick and this in need of your special prayers, her name is Sharon Duncan.
There will not be a funeral and we will not be traveling to Oregon as we already bid our goodbye when we were last with the family. It is hard to not be together with the family at this time.
We did have a very nice time Christmas day and a great meal. We were at our oldest son's house with all of his family and also Nathan, our youngest son, was with us.
Thank you for the Christmas gifts. May the Lord bless you richly for your generosity.
May God's richest blessing be upon you in the new year.

Greetings from Honduras,
We enjoyed an extra nice service this evening. Nelson, our leading man and Sunday school teacher preached a good message and we had a good attendance.
We thank each of you for your prayers. We had a good trip and Lena's fingers healed very nicely.
We do have a couple of very important prayer requests:
Please pray for Lena's brother, Leroy, who has cancer and is not doing well. We also appreciate prayer for my mother, Doris. She will be 96 in October and is living alone, this is a concern.
We are excited that two of the new converts were in church and we hope to have a baptism service soon. We do not have our own place to baptize so it is somewhat complicated.
We were able to help get a lap top for the deaf ministry, help the youth camp building that belongs to another ministry and are hoping to visit another part of Honduras and pass out tracts.
Thank you for your part in making this outreach possible.
Yours in Christ,
Harold and Lena Priday
We are very grateful for your prayers. God is good.
We have a good group going to youth camp and we are grateful for those who sent an offering, everyone out of our mission work is paid. I will be teaching for an hour each day from Tuesday through Saturday next week at camp.
Anahy has gone to camp twice before and since being saved has become a leader in witnessing and in helping with the youth group. She has been chosen to be a leader at camp helping with the activities, that is quite an honor and testimony. All this is a direct answer to your prayers.
We are praying for Olta, a middle age lady who is an alcaholic and recently recieved Christ as her savior. We will be visiting her in her home tomorrow, please pray about that visit. We will also visit Mr. Christi who has recently become a Christian and has some health problems that we will be praying with him about tomorrow.
We appreciate your prayers for Nathan, our youngest son. He is doing well in college and has a good job that he likes. That is another answer to your prayers as well as ours. It was a joy to get to have a nice visit with him on the telephone.
When our oldest son went to Seminary we only had a ham radio and sometimes we could talk and many times we couldn't get through. Many time we would lose the signal in the middle of our conversations. When my grandmother passed away we were sent a telegram to tell us, the telegram took three weeks to get to us. One time in an emergency situation when I was in another country and Lena in Honduras I sent an emergency telegram to tell her I was ok and on my way home, (five days late and Lena had been told by the US that I had been captured by the Sanadistas), she got the telegram six weeks later. We really appreciate good telephone service.
We are forever grateful for your prayers and help.
