Mission Field: Honduras
Our Missionary for 23 years
Greetings from Honduras
We have had tremendous times here in Siguatepeque.
Thanks to Heritage Baptist Church, Haslet, Texas we have freshly painted buildings, a new auditorium to meet in at the mission work and a great outreach with tracts, books of John and Romans and special programs to schools and in football fields.
We have had five saved in the last two weeks and broke our attendance record twice with our people.
Nelson is really growing in the Lord. He has preached great messages several times and is starting a Wednesday morning visitation program. Nery has given a good report on his new class in his church and is excited about our Saturday study with him to help him teach and one day preach. He is from Leslie's work.
Thank you for your prayers that helped us get through the problems that we had. God is good and your prayers were answered. Thank you.
In the precious name of Jesus,
Harold and Lena Priday
your missionary in Honduras
We have much to tell you, God has really been blessing.
I can only send a short note now but wanted you to know we have broken attendance record two Sunday's in a row with people from our area(35). Last Sunday we had the group from Haslet, Texas with us in the new auditorium and had sixty all together.
Heritage Baptist Church brought 25 with them. They built the new auditorium and painted it. Our church in Barrio San Francisco bought the lumber and treated it so it would be ready and one of our men built the two doors. The group went to work Tuesday with just a cement pad and Wednesday night service we met in the new building with lights and fans, PRAISE THE LORD. The group is painting the Bible institute today.
We had puppet shows, special singing and preaching on one soccer ball field, three times in a school, three church services in two different churches and had three saved. Sunday a middle aged man was saved and two children.
We thank the churches that gave extra offering to help us through the robbery. We also thank Heritage Baptist Church for very generous offerings to help with the building and for the new projector to replace the one that burned out and couldn't be repaired.
Thank you so much for your prayers. The Lord is doing wonderful things.
Thank you very much for your prayers.
We have had visitors every week. We pray that our counseling and witnessing will bring souls to the Lord.
We have not heard any further word on the robbery. Some say it is lost, we just don't know. It has been almost two months so we don't expect much. Your prayers have helped much. We are doing well, we have learned to make some adjustments.
The mission work is doing very well. We were honored to have a quest speaker Sunday who challenged everyone. Brother Daniel was the preacher, a dear brother in Christ that we have know for 38 years.
We had a death in the church family and it was good to see everyone pull together to help. There were friends from other churches helping with the services.
The classes in the grade school are going great and we have been seeing wonderful results. I am about to go now to teach the class for night students.
Leslie, our oldest son, is preaching for the international fellowship meeting (Independent Baptist Fellowship International) at Fort Worth, Texas tomorrow night. He is on furlough and will meet many new pastors.
Thank you for your prayers.

PRAYER UPDATE March 8, 2016
We praise the Lord for full benches Sunday. We had two new visitors, in a small work each visitor counts a lot. We are praying that the people will become faithful to all the services.
Our young People have had some great services. They are some of the most faithful of the church. A couple weeks ago we had a joint service with our young people from the church in Colonia Matta, Barrio Bajo y San Fransico. Leslie, our son led the service with our grandson Halbert. There was a full house and a great service.
Our study with Nelson is very exciting and the Lord is blessing. Wednesday I had to take Lena to the Capital to get her passport renewed and Nelson preached for me. Everyone was very excited about the good message. Thank you for your prayers for Nelson.
Getting ready for the youth camp coming up the 22 of March, yes Easter week we will be on a mountain top with the youth. I will be teaching and preaching to the youth. Our son, Leslie is in charge of the camp and grandson Halbert will be helping with the music and activities. Pray also for the funds to have camp, every year it goes up and is out of the reach of our teens. We need your help to pay for camp. We are grateful to the two who responded.
Please pray for youth group and leaders from Heritage Baptist church, Haslet, Texas as they work out the details for coming down the end of June to help with some building and evangelizing.
Please pray for our dear friend and helper, Doug Sims. We just received notice that he has a serious Cancer that can't be operated on. Doug takes care of many of our needs in the United States. His sacrifice and friendship is greatly appreciated.
We are grateful for your prayers for our protection, provision, and the mission work in Barrio San Francisco.
Yours in Christ,
Harold and Lena Priday

Great things are happening November 24, 2015
In Honduras it is hard to get men to come to services but God has been blessing. Wednesday we had almost all men in the mission service. One of the men who has been growing in the Lord is going with us on visitation Wednesday. Another man who has just started coming is already helping. We are also excited that Gisela, a faithful lady, is going to help teach the children.
We must build a bigger place to meet in so we are putting a temporary building in the driveway of the rented house. Yesterday we received the sand and gravel to start the work. We appreciate your prayers as we go forth by faith. Pray that the work continues to grow and pray that the Lord provide the funds to build. We still are praying that offerings will come in to purchase a lot for a permanent place to build. Maybe that could be a Christmas offering that you could pray about.
These are answers to your prayers. Thank you for praying.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving. We are so grateful to the Lord for so many wonderful blessings. We are blessed with health, a good ministry and grateful for our family who the Lord has saved and are serving Him. We will have Thanksgiving at our oldest son's (Leslie) with three of our grandson's. We will miss our son and family in Texas, David, Litsa and little Asael. Nathan is with us and we hope to see Melissa Saturday with her girls.
God bless you richly,
Harold L Priday
A very good morning to you from Honduras.
It is a nice day here and I Hope you are having nice weather also. The rainy season is ending and we are seeing more sunshine, sure helps on visitation.
We have had two new visits to the mission as a result of our visitation and one converted life.
Our urgent prayer request is to be able to get a lot and build a church. We have outgrown the house and though we are building an addition it will not be long before we outgrow that.
Nathan is excited about his job teaching. He has a full load and like all teachers has to spend a lot of time at home getting ready. He is teaching in 2, 3, and 4th grades math, grammar, phonetics, science and physical education. You might ask; how can he do that with only a high school diploma? The administrator of the school was one of Nathan's teachers and also worked under Lena in another school therefore she knows Nathan's skills and that he is responsible, she also knows that Lena will give him the most professional training and help. This is Honduras and these kind of things can happen and God is great.
Many of you remember when Nathan was born. He was born out of a horrific tragedy and you prayed us through it. You have prayed for Nathan these 18 years and this is the fruit of your prayers. He is very active in the Youth group at the mission and is a wonderful witness for the Lord. He is also enrolled by internet in Liberty University and will be carrying a full load there. I knew you would be pleased to hear of the results of your prayers.
We learned in a meeting last night that the unemployment in Honduras is 70%. That is 70 out of 100 people do not have a job. As you know we have the highest murder rate in the world. The only answer to this problem is the Lord Jesus Christ. Thank you for helping us reach them.
Yours in Christ,
Harold L Priday
