Out and About with the Silcott’s
Dear Praying Friends,
Timothy: This summer I held 3 Vacation Bible Schools in Arizona.
Florence Baptist Church Florence
Elliot Road Baptist Church Mesa
Berean Baptist Church San Tan Valley.
Next, I spoke in Vacation Bible Schools outside of Arizona.
First Baptist Church Ash Flat, Arkansas
For the rest of July and part of August, I spoke for VBSs in Minnesota.
Lakeland Baptist Church Gilbert
Highland Park Baptist Church St. James
Faith Baptist Church Sauk Centre
Calvary Baptist Church Granada, Minnesota
Oakland Baptist Church Oakland, Minnesota
Because of the fear of Covid, we saw a drop in attendance all across the country with some questioning whether we would have VBS or not. We praise the Lord that no VBS was canceled and that we saw 6 trust Christ as their Savior and others responded for prayer that they might grow in their walk with the Lord.
For the last two Sundays in August, I was able to give an update for our sending church in Altoona, Iowa and to a supporting church in Norwoodville (a community within Des Moines).
Before heading back to Arizona, I drove over to South Dakota to spend some time with my dad, Pastor Ralph Silcott in Rapid City. During my stay in Rapid, I was able to speak in several churches in the area: Bethany Bible Baptist Church inTulare, South Dakota; Calvary Baptist Church in Huron, South Dakota; First Baptist Church in Hulett, Wyoming; Central Baptist Church in Gillette, Wyoming; First Baptist Church in Baker, Montana; and last of all at Rapid Valley Faith Baptist Church in Rapid Valley, South Dakota.
On October 4 my Dad and I left Rapid City to attend the Northern Plans Pastors’ Conference in Cheyenne, Wyoming for two days. Then on Wednesday, we left to celebrate the 100-year anniversary banquet at Faith Baptist Bible College in Des Moines, Iowa. Next, Dad and I visited the Creation Museum and Ark Encounter in the greater Cincinnati region. Finally, we returned to Iowa for Faith’s Global Reach Conference.
Meanwhile, Jane continues to work for a hospice in Arizona, take some college classes, and attend a local church.
Thank you for your regular prayers and support,
May the Lord bless you as you serve our Savior,
Timothy and Jane Silcott
