Monday January 22nd, 2007 was the 20th anniversary of when Mally and I and our four children (we now have five as Kristel was born in the USA) moved from Australia to the USA. For seven years I worked with the Institute for Creation Research, and then along with Mark and Renee Looy and Mike and Sue Zovath, we all moved to Kentucky (13 years ago this March) to begin the Answers in Genesis ministryand the Creation Museum.
Mally and I and our children, Mark and Renee and Mike and Sue went to one of our favorite restaurants in the area to celebrate. The photo, taken by Mark on his cell phone (so the quality is not that good) is of Mally and me at the restaurant.
This year is also very special as 2007 will be the year the Creation Museum will open to the public (a vision that goes back over 25 years). May 28 (Memorial Day) will be the first day open to the public.
A WOW TREE AT THE CREATION MUSEUM
When I take people to see the Tree of Life under construction on the Creation Walk section of the Creation Museumall they can say is WOW. Have a look at the photographthis Tree is going to be an attraction in itself.
I have also included the photograph of two (of the many) volunteers (Audra and Jessica) who have been helping getting the 20,000 leaves ready for the Tree of Life. First of all, the 20,000 leaves had to be painted the right green colorthen they had to be put into the branchesnext they will each have to be coated with a fire retardantthen they will have to be placed on the tree!

SPIRIT OF GRACE
It is great to receive comments like this that commend AiG staff for their Godly attitude:
I would like to commend David Wright for his latest feedback email regarding homosexuality and evolution. It was very well written, in an obvious spirit of grace, which is far too often lacking in discussions of sin, homosexuality, and even creation/evolution. Of course, it was very informative and factual too. I will pray alongside you for the person who wrote to AiG to be touched by the response, but I will also pray that AiG will continue to display such marvelous grace, patience, love, compassion, kindness, and truth in all of your interactions with others (Christian or otherwise). Many blessings to you all.Were not perfect, but at AiG we do strive to reflect the fruit of the spirit in all we do and say.
Thanks for stopping by and thanks for praying,
