Grace Baptist Church

Thursday, March 22nd, 2007


In the southwest corner of Utah is a growing town called Washington, Utah. This area is known by snowbirds as the Mini Sun Valley. Many people winter here to keep out of the cold from the North. Even though the climate is warm in southern Utah, the hearts of the people in this area are very cold to the gospel of our Lord and Savior. This week, March 18-21, we will be holding meetings in this church in the center of Mormon Country. Please pray for us as we strive to share the truth of the gospel with this frigid community.

Pastor Rick Newell has just got out of the hospital after having double bypass surgery. He is now recovering from this surgery as we start this week of meetings. Please pray for his strength and for the church to be revived through these revival meetings. I will also be speaking in the local nursing home where the pastor and his wife work.

Praise the Lord! Through this week of meetings we saw 10 trust Christ as their Savior. We had many attend our meetings in the Nursing home.

Berean Baptist Church

Thursday, March 22nd, 2007


On March 11-14, 2008 we ministered in Holbrook, Arizona at the Berean Baptist Church. Pastor Dick Zehrung is retired from the Coast Guard. He has lots of exciting stories from his many years of service. Now he is the pastor of this small struggling work in northern Arizona. They desperately need dedicated men that would be faithful in the services and support this needy work.

Mormanism is very strong in this area and has taken many of their own family members, as well as, people that at one time attended this church. Please pray for this pastor and his wife as they serve the Lord in Holbrook, Arizona.

Grand View

Thursday, March 22nd, 2007


On our trip to northern Arizona we stopped at the Grand Canyon. We often call this joy in the journey. We parked at an RV park in the park and enjoyed a three mile hike on the Kaibab Trail to the Skeleton Point. All the signs in the park, as well as, the rangers try to tell us that this beautiful canyon took millions of years to form.

But we know on the basis of God’s Word, it did not take a whole lot of time with just a little bit of water; instead, it took a whole lot of water with just a little bit of time. As we sat and ate our lunch, we were amazed at how beautiful this canyon looks. As God destroyed this world, because of his anger towards sin, He formed a canyon to remind us of this anger. But man twists it around and comes up with a theory called evolution to promote the idea that there is no God and that they are not answerable to Him.

Even in a short break we are reminded why we are on the road striving to reach a blinded world with the truth of God’s Word.

Please pray for us as we seek to reach this lost and dying world with the good news of the gospel.

Caleb Ray Silcott

Monday, March 5th, 2007
Caleb went to see the doctor while we were in Tucson, Arizona to have his foot looked at to see if he could take off his boot cast. The doctor told us that his foot has healed very well and that he was going to be just fine. Because he broke his growth bone above his small toe we wanted to make sure that everything was set right and that it was doing what it was suppose to do.
Please keep praying for Caleb as he grows physically and strives to overcome his special challenges in school.

Coronado Baptist Church

Monday, March 5th, 2007


Coronado Baptist Church is located in the downtown area of Tucson, Arizona. We had the privilege to minister in this church all day on March 4, 2007. Dr. Boyer is teaching music in a public school in Tucson, as well as, pastoring Coronado Baptist Church.

Please pray for this struggling work that they will continue to grow and see many come to know the Lord as their Savior.
