Out and About with the Silcott’s
In May I left Arizona and headed for the state of Tennessee for our Come International Baptist Ministries Spring Conference. It was good to see and fellowship with our Evangelists with COME and preach for the Wednesday night service. After our conference I was able to preach in two other local churches in the area and attend the Hope of Israel Conference. On June 1st I left Tennessee and traveled to Arkansas where I held a DVBS at First Baptist Church in Ash Flat, Arkansas. During the week we saw two children respond to the Gospel. From Arkansas I traveled to New Mexico where I preached at Whispering Cedars Baptist Camp for two weeks. This camp on the Navajo reservation is South of Gallup and west on Jones Ranch Road. It was a privilege to minister alongside Pastor John Woods and the pastor of Widefield Baptist Church Joseph Lee. We saw a positive response to my ministry and two that made life-changing decisions.
From New Mexico I traveled to Lowpoint, Illinois where I spoke at Camp Manitoumi with Pastor John Kealen. This week I spoke to campers who told me that their parents remember me when they were campers years ago. These young people enjoyed the week with my four friends and all the activities that you can find at a Bible camp. Please pray for the Eight who trusted in Christ as their Savior. After camp in Lowpoint, Illinois I traveled back West to Leon, Iowa where I held a Vacation Bible School for Leon Bible Church. This church does not have a pastor, so I filled their pulpit on Sunday, July 3rd, rode on a VBS promotion float on July 4th, held Vacation Bible School the 5th through the 9th and preached for the closing program on Sunday, July 10th. Please pray for Leon Bible Church as they seek a pastor to lead them in the future.
For the rest of July through to the middle of September, I filled the pulpit for Rapid Valley Faith Baptist Church. This gave me the opportunity to spend some time with my dad and help the church as they are still in need of a Senior Pastor. During this time, I had the opportunity to have eye surgery to remove cataracts, put in new lenses and get laser surgery to correct astigmatism. I was also able to take my dad back east to Merrillville, Indiana to bury Loma’s remains next to her first husband. [Loma was my dad’s second wife.] On the way back to South Dakota, we stopped in Cumberland, Iowa to see friends from the past that attended my dad’s church in Rapid City. This gave me the chance to preach at First Baptist Church in Cumberland, Iowa with Pastor Michael Martin.
After leaving South Dakota, I returned east to Omaha, Nebraska to preach at Temple Baptist Church with Pastor Ryan Witt. Temple has been a supporting church of ours for many years. It was a joy to see friends and give the church an update on our ministry. From Nebraska I traveled back to Arizona to be home for the fall and to help fill pulpits for churches and help with In My Home Hospice Care as Chaplain and volunteer work.
Thank you for your regular prayers and support,
May the Lord bless you as you serve our Savior.
