Christmas Program for December

Wednesday, December 28th, 2011


For the month of December, we parked our trailer at Faith Baptist Church in Bridgeton, Missouri with Pastor Dan Gonnerman.  Our goal was to stay parked at one church and present our ministry and Christmas program in churches in the local area.  We were able to stir up some prayer support and use Rawley and Randy to present our Christmas program.  On Sunday December 4, we presented our Christmas program at Cottage Hills Baptist Church in Cottage Hills, Illinois.  Then on December 11, we left our trailer in Bridgeton and traveled to Moberly, Missouri at Heritage Baptist Church.  It was great to see Pastor Micah Panjada and his family for a few days as we presented our Christmas program to the church family.  Then on December 18, we finished our Christmas program at First Baptist Church in Roxana, Illinois.  Praise the Lord.  God answered our prayers:  First Baptist Church has found and called a new pastor who will begin in January.

Our prayer was that we might see 5 people trust Christ as their Savior as a result of our Christmas program.  Although we have not heard of any that were saved, we have been told of several who attended who still have not responded to the gospel.  Please pray for those lost souls that need to respond soon before it is too late.  For the rest of the year and the beginning of 2012, we are staying with family in Pierceton, Indiana.  Have a Happy New Year from “Silcott Ministries.”

Norwoodville Baptist Church

In November I was able to attend the Bible Conference at Faith Baptist Bible College and Theological Seminary from October 31 to November 4, 2011.  On November 6 I preached at Norwoodville Baptist Church.  They have supported us from the beginning of our ministry back in 1991.  It was a real joy to see our friends again and give this faithful church our update on our ministry.  On November 13 I preached for the morning and evening service at the First Baptist Church in Cumberland, Iowa.  Because of hunting season, we stayed in Cumberland while I went bow hunting for some deer meat.  The Lord blessed and I was able to harvest a nice mature 10 point white tail buck.  PTL
