She was housebound or in a hospital for more than a year, so what was the first thing Elizabeth M. of Cincinnati wanted to do after her bone marrow transplants and chemo treatments? Well, her first venture out into the public after 13 months was . . . the Creation Museum!
Her mother, Donna, contacted us many weeks ago and asked whether her 12-year-old daughter could visit the museum—but outside of regular hours. You see, she was concerned that with her daughter's immune system being so fragile after all the chemo treatments, Elizabeth was at risk of picking up something from a crowd of people inside the museum—and getting very ill. So, yesterday, we opened the doors early for them.

Elizabeth could not see it all because of a medical appointment, but she plans to return. Her mother called us later in the day and said that they all had a “wonderful time.” Elizabeth then added: “I thought everyone there was so nice to my family and me.” She particularly enjoyed the Adam and Eve exhibits, the Ark display, and The Last Adam film. On her next visit, she wants to take in a planetarium program and go over to our new petting zoo. “I can't wait to come back,” she said. “We all had a great time. Thank you for everything.”

This is Him We Spoke AboutThanks for stopping by and thanks for praying.
(Isa 25:8-9) He will swallow up death in victory; and the Lord GOD will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the rebuke of his people shall he take away from off all the earth: for the LORD hath spoken it. And it shall be said in that day, Lo, this is our God; we have waited for him, and he will save us: this is the LORD; we have waited for him, we will be glad and rejoice in his salvation.
Today we speak to the lost that Jesus is Lord who they cannot see, but one day when He comes back we will say, “This is our God, we have waited for Him.”
