Temple Baptist Church


Our first Daily Vacation Bible School was held in Omaha, Nebraska at Temple Baptist Church. This church brings back some great memories from my past. My mother Lylia Silcott taught Sunday school in this church as she attended the Omaha Bible Institute that is now Faith Baptist Bible College in Ankeny, Iowa. Ladies in the church still remember my mother from the mid 50’s. Jane’s parents served here through college and Temple Baptist was a supporting church of Jane’s family.

It was rewarding to minister in this church with our VBS theme “Building Lives for Christ.” We had an attendance around 30 children consisting of a few from the church and others that rode the church van from the community.

During the week I introduced the story with ventriloquism and illustrated the gospel with object lessons with a surprise ending. We had 6 respond to the invitation and trust Christ as their personal Savior. Praise the Lord.

On Thursday Caleb left from the Omaha Airport and traveled to Louisiana for a three week music school: “Gospel Singers of America.” Once again he will learn more song leading, singing in parts and piano lessons. Pray that he will remain healthy as he has a rigorous schedule while at music camp.
