LAKE AERATION AT AiG
We praise the Lord for supporters of AiG who donated labor and equipment/parts to install an aeration system in the three-acre lake at the Creation Museum (see photographs). So many people have contributed in various ways to enable this facility to be the high-quality, professional one that it is. There is no doubt that the Creation Museum and AiG offices would cost millions of dollars more were it not for the generosity of Gods people who have sacrificially given to the ministry.
While at the Modesto conference, a young boy (around 10 years old) came up and asked if I would pray for a medical problem he had. He said, "Mr. Ham, will you pray for me? It doesnt have to be now. I have to see a specialist and I need you to pray for me." I promised him the staff of AiG would pray for him. The next day at the conference, the young lad presented me with a kangaroo with a tag around its neck stating, "made on sixth day." Today, at a special staff meeting, I presented the toy kangaroo to the AiG staff and we prayed for young Logan (see photograph). Please remember to pray for him too.
Today, AiG is releasing an "accountability statement" to put on our web site. We believe it is important for people to know about the accountability structure of the ministry. This is the statement:
Answers in Genesis (AiG) is an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit ministry organization based in the United States of America. AiG operates under a board of directors of godly individuals who establish, maintain and uphold high standards of accountability for the entire ministry. This includes membership in and oversight by the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA), annual audits by an independent CPA firm and regular consultation with our legal counsel and the Christian Law Association to make sure the ministry does all things excellently as unto the Lord. All annual governmental filings required by law are complied with in a diligent manner (e.g., IRS filings).MODESTO FEEDBACK
The AiG ministry has always relied on the advice, wisdom and review of the very best international scientists available, including leading geologists, geneticists, astronomers, paleontologists and theologians. The majority of these professionals have no official association with AiG, except a common desire to develop the most excellent information and materials possible, to honor Christ, to advance the church and to further the growing community spirit of Christian scientists who love Gods Word.
AiGs commitment to excellence extends to every facet of the ministry, from the website to publications and the future Creation Museum. For instance, the Creation Museum has a committed board of Ph.D. content experts in a number of fields, both inside and outside the ministry, who are consulted about every exhibit. These respected scientists review each others work and work closely with AiG staff to ensure that the ministry presents the very best that the Christian scientific community has to offer.
Answers in Genesis believes in accountability. Our foremost accountability is to God as we daily serve Him. Secondly, we stand accountable to the gracious people who support the AiG ministry with their prayers and donations. Lastly, the CEO and staff are accountable to a godly board of directors. As we stand and speak in defense of the Holy Scriptures from the very first verse in Genesis to an increasingly hostile world, AiG would covet your prayers, and we thank you for your friendship.
Dear Ken Ham and Dr. Lisle, Thank you so much for coming to Modesto. My six children and I got a lot out of the teaching. They were exausted by Monday evening but still wanted to come back on Tuesday night. The Lord Bless you both.ANSWERS MAGAZINE RESPONSE STAGGERING
