Dear Friends

Some have asked how we are doing under the great strife that is in Honduras at this time. 

Some may not know but Honduras is experiencing a small civil war.  There was an election for president and political positions and the vote was close.  Two parties raised up in arms and started great turmoil.

The marches turned into angry mobs who began blocking all the main roads and city streets.  Violence broke out throughout the whole country with burning cars, breaking store windows, burning stores and stealing on a very large scale causing millions of dollars of damage and stopping all transportation and commerce for several days.  Many people have lost their businesses and thousands of jobs are lost in an already hungry nation.

They burned the city hall in our town, stealing all the computers and burning records.  Lost are deeds to land, marriage records, tax records and much more important documents.  They looted the major stores as well.

Last night the national government ordered a curfew from 6 pm to 6 am for ten days.  The military and all police have been called out take charge.  This will eliminate our Wednesday night service and cause us to have an afternoon service on Sunday.

We have not suffered any damage and we do not know of any other missionaries who have had damage to property or person.  We do appreciate your prayers.

As a result one of our ladies from our mission work, head of the laboratory at the government clinic, (her name is Ana), was led by the Lord to lead the whole clinic, doctors and patients in one hour vigil of prayer.  Only two doctors refused to be a part of the prayer but the regional director responded by requiring everyone each day to start with prayer.  Not only that but she was able to give out a stack of tracts and a new Bible to a patient that promised to read it daily.

God is Good and we praise Him for the opportunity to serve Him.

Thank you again for your concern and prayers,

Harold and Lena Priday

Dear Friends,

We continue to be thankful for your prayers and support.

We had a nice Thanksgiving with our oldest son, Leslie, and his family.   Though Honduras does not celebrate the same as in the US, we did have a special time in our mission work giving thanks to the Lord for all He had done this year.

We did have some problems.  Our refrigerator went out on Thanksgiving and had to have a new motor.  The day after we received a message from our layer that we have to send another six hundred dollars on papers the government is requiring. As most of you know our finances have been very low and not covering our expenses already.  Thank you for your continued prayers in these areas.

Nathan is doing well in college.  He will be able to come home for Christmas and we are very excited.

Lena is doing very well and is busy with the mission work as well as Thanksgiving and coming Christmas.

The mission is doing well and is busy getting ready for the Christmas program. The work is growing and souls have been saved.

May the Lord bless you greatly during this wonderful season.

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
