Olivet Baptist Church

Thursday, January 25th, 2018

Thank you for your support of our ministry on the road in missionary evangelism.  Silcott Ministries just finished meetings in Westwood, Kansas at Olivet Baptist Church with Pastor Bruce Anderson.  Friday night and all-day Saturday, I enjoyed joining the deacons and staff at their ministry retreat.  It had great food and powerful preaching to encourage the senior staff and faithful servants of Olivet Baptist Church. Sunday, January 21, was promoted as a Friends’ Day to encourage members to invite their friends to join them at church.  For Sunday School Rawley helped me tell the story of Jonah and the Great Fish and what he learned about his God.  Then for the morning service, I preached from Acts 8 on Philip the Evangelist reaching out to the Ethiopian Eunuch.  Sunday night, Rodney joined me in the story of Daniel and the Lion’s den and I preached on the Living Portfolio of the Demoniac of Gadara.

During the week I was able to speak at two of the chapels for the Christian school.  The first chapel was on Monday with the first through sixth graders and on Tuesday was with the seventh through twelfth graders.  Then on Wednesday night, I spoke to the AWANA children for their devotion time.  One of the highlights of the week was when the Durham family asked me to go to Sunrise Senior Living to share the gospel with the residents.  The gospel was clearly presented, and several have said how much they enjoyed the service.  Please pray that those who know not Christ as their Savior will respond to the Gospel soon.

Good Shepherd Baptist Church

Saturday, January 20th, 2018

The first two Sundays in January, I filled the pulpit for Good Shepherd Baptist Church in Omaha, Nebraska a church that is looking for a pastor.  The church is located in western Omaha on the corner of a busy intersection surrounded by beautiful homes, across the street is a large office complex building being developed for the Lutheran Hospital.  The last Sunday in December was canceled because of bad weather; but we had great meetings the other two Sundays including a Friend’s Day for a whole family Sunday School service on January 14th.  I preached for each of the services and presented an adult Sunday School class on January 7th.

It was a joy to spend some time with these dear Saints in the southwestern corner of Omaha.  The possibilities of ministry are endless in this growing community.  Please pray for this church that they will soon find a pastor who will love this church family and the community that is growing around them.
