Honoring Dr. Gish

by on

Today (Tuesday), Answers in Genesis honored Dr. Duane Gish (from The Institute For Creation Research) for his more than 40 years of involvement in creation evangelism.

At 8:30 am Dr. Gish addressed the AiG staff (see photo). Carl Kerby and I took Duane and Lolly on a tour of the AiG offices and Museum---then lunch in the AiG cafe.

At 4 pm, Carl Kerby interviewed Dr. Gish for a radio program. While Carl was conducting this interview, CDR radio interviewed me about the "living fossil" called the Wollemi Pine tree. At 4:30 pm, CDR radio interviewed Dr. Gish.

We had a special dinner in our café beginning at 5:15 pm as a lead up to our special night where staff and friends of the ministry would listen to a talk given by Dr. Gish.

At 7 pm Mark Looy and I introduced Dr. Gish---I told the audience Dr. Gish was one of my heroes of the faith---Mark Looy explained how when he was a teenager, he was doubting the Bible when Dr. Gish came and spoke, and it changed his life---he understood he could trust God's Word---that's why Mark is in creation ministry today.

After the evening meeting, Mark Looy, Mike Zovath and I (the three "founding fathers" of AiG--USA) together with Carl Kerby (now a staff member, but Carl was a founding board member of AiG--USA) presented Dr. Gish with a special plaque commemorating his more than 40 years in creation evangelism. Our Librarian (Walt) set up a display on the stage behind the lectern of the books Dr. Gish has authored or co-authored.

Duane and Lolly both commented they were "overwhelmed" by what they saw at AiG. They were thrilled at what has happened in this ministry in just 11 years---they want to come back for the opening of the Museum!

Well it was a long day---I couldn't even begin to get to my emails until late---tomorrow we (Mally is coming with me---she doesn't often come with me as we are still homeschooling our youngest daughter) fly to Chicago for the Homeschool conference where I will give 7 lectures (keynotes and workshops).

Oh, and by the way---the waterfall exhibit is now painted and is filled with water---the pumps are turned on and the waterfall is operating. I can't wait until we can put the turtles and fish in---the lobby is becoming more spectacular all the time.

Thanks for stopping by and keep praying!
