Chewelah Baptist Church


Silcott Ministries finished a week of “Building Lives for Christ” at Chewelah Baptist Church in Chewelah, Washington.  The Vacation Bible School was well attended with visitors coming to see the fun and earn lots of exciting awards.  The construction breakroom was decorated with treats displayed around toy dump trucks and earth moving equipment.  Each day Pastor Dan Cleghorn handed out a bird house kit or a toolbox kit to the one who sat quietly and listened to the speaker.  The honored child could build and paint the project at home.  The top builder of the week got a tool bag filled with tools for future building projects.

Chewelah, WA05It was good to spend time with Pastor Dan Cleghorn and his wife Karen this week for a Vacation Bible School.  I first met Dan and his wife at Faith Baptist Bible College back in 1982.  Pastor Dan was one year ahead of me in college.  I have always enjoyed his friendship and opportunities to take part in serving the Lord together in ministry.  Please pray for their son Jonathan and Melissa Cleghorn, who live in West Virginia.  Their home was flooded and they are in the process of demolishing the flood damaged walls, throwing away most of their possessions, then repairing the damage, rebuilding their home, and replacing their possessions. Because they have a young baby girl with special health needs, until the house is safe, Melissa and their 3 children will be staying with her parents.
