I have had a busy October. During the first week, I was at the Creation Museum doing concerts and children’s workshops. From there, I flew to Word of Life in Schroon Lake, New York, for a conference along with Ken Ham. We have visited Schroon Lake several years in a row, and it is always a pleasure to go there.
We got to meet friends from years past, and make some new friends as well. Dr. John Whitcomb and his wife, Norma, were speaking at the World of Life Bible Institute. It was a real treat for us to see them again—they are special people. During the second day there, I gave my talk, “Dinosaurs—Separating Fact from Fiction” to the entire group. In the evening, I did an hour-long music concert with songs from my two new CDs, “Come on Aboard” and “I Am Not Ashamed.” I also included some of my popular songs, such as “SOAR,” “Here Kitty, Kitty, Kitty” and of course, "Billions of Dead Things."
The next day, I did a children’s workshop with about 60 children, teaching them about Pterosaurs and how to defend their faith. I showed the children how to sculpture a pterodactyl head which they loved to do. We had a great time in the workshop.
During our free afternoons, we traveled to Lake Placid, New York, and also took a ferry across Lake Champlain to Vermont. The trees were in their peak fall colors and the weather was beautiful.
After Schroon Lake, I traveled to Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, to Calvary Chapel with Ken, Dr. Menton, and Dr. Lisle. I did four sessions with about 1,000 children during their Sunday school hour. I spoke on dinosaurs, teaching the kids how to defend their faith on this issue. Dinosaurs are used by evolutionists more than any other animal to try to pull children away from God’s Word. On Sunday evening, I did a mini-concert for the entire congregation. I did songs from my newest CDs, including “Already Gone.” On Monday, Ken and I did a children’s session. I taught the children some of my songs and brought out my pet dinosaur, Levi. I also brought along a fire-breathing dragon and some other visual props.
I am getting ready to go on a missions trip to Kenya, Africa, in a couple of days. I will be there until November 18, speaking and doing classes at the Rift Valley Academy, which is the largest Christian school in Africa. I will also be working with three orphanages. Please pray for our trip that God will use my words to bring people to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.
