Freedom Baptist Church

Thursday, February 22nd, 2018

On Sunday, February 18th, 2018, we held meetings at Freedom Baptist Church in Copperas Cove, Texas.  Pastor Joseph Grab and his wife Linda have 18 beautiful children who love the Lord and minister together to reach Fort Hood and the city of Copperas Cove with the gospel.  Leading singing and presenting special music, the family prepares the congregation to hear the preaching of God’s Word.  For Sunday School Rawley helped me teach a Bible lesson for the whole family and Sunday night Rodney presented the story of Daniel and the Lion’s Den.  I preached for both the morning and evening service giving an invitation and many responded by coming forward to pray.

On Friday night my molar broke and caused me some discomfort.  Saturday a local dentist informed me I needed a root canal and a cap. He did the canal and a temporary cap on Monday. This was my first experience at having a dentist do so much work on one tooth.  Please pray for us as we work through the expense and pain of this dentist appointment. (I will return to Texas and he will apply the permanent cap in March.)

NorthSide Baptist Church

Friday, February 16th, 2018

Silcott Ministries was invited to present our ministry at NorthSide Baptist Church in Nolanville, Texas with Pastor Adam Garber. We started Sunday morning February 11, 2018 with speaking at the Sunday School class with the teens.  Six teens raised their hands committing to serving the Lord and taking a stand on what the Bible teaches.  For the morning service I preached in children’s church with a story from Randy and three object lessons.  Four that responded to the invitation trusted in Christ as their Savior.  For the evening service I introduced Rodney to the whole church family and preached a message out of the gospel of Mark.  Several came to the front to pray seeking to serve the Lord in their daily lives.

On Friday, February 9th, I was asked to speak for the NorthSide Baptist Academy chapel.  They have over 40 students who listened intently to the gospel message.  Pastor Adam and I were able to spend time together during the week in fellowship and touring Fort Hood.  Please pray for NorthSide Baptist Church in Nolanville, Texas as they seek to reach Nolanville and Fort Hood with the gospel of Christ.

Victory Baptist Church

Saturday, February 10th, 2018

On February 4, 2018, we held meetings at Victory Baptist Church in Copperas Cove, Texas. We have a long-time financial supporter who supports our ministry through this growing church.  Don and Laura S. have prayed for us and supported us for more than 15 years.  Don is now with the Lord and Laura is still serving the Lord at the piano.

Pastor Erick Knight had me preach for a whole family Sunday School class with ventriloquism and object lessons and present our ministry Sunday night.  Sunday morning, I also spoke in children’s church and in the evening, I spoke to the puppet team encouraging them with perfecting their art in their puppet ministry.  Please pray that Victory Baptist Church will take us on for monthly support.

Sherwood Baptist Church

Saturday, February 10th, 2018

For the week of January 28, 2018, we stopped in Newcastle, Oklahoma to visit Sherwood Baptist Church.  I was able to talk with Pastor Keith Brown and introduce our mission board, Come international Baptist Ministries and our ministry in evangelism.  Another reason for our visit was to see dear friends from the past: Blain Daugherty was the administrator and teacher of the Christian school I attended back in the 1970’s, his wife Carol, and my home room teacher Mark Fulton and his wife Linda.  They all had a big part in helping me with my education and preparing me for college and my future ministry in evangelism.

It was a great encouragement to see them all again and get caught up with how God is using them as they serve the Lord in Oklahoma.  Please pray for Mark and his wife Linda Fulton as they start a new business helping churches with bookkeeping.
