Dr. David Crandall of our Answers Worldwide division has just returned from traveling to and fro across the world to represent AiG in various countries. While in Malaysia, Dr. Crandall reports that he gave away 150 copies of my book The Lie to pastors and other key people.
Here is a report from the missionary involved in distributing The Lie:
It’s good to report we were able to distribute all the books. We had seven left, which we took with us to Singapore, where the church just happened to have seven pastors who did not yet have The Lie. Victor did a wonderful job helping me there. We spoke Sunday at the Gospel Light Christian Church, which partners with Doane Baptist Church missions outreach into China and Asia.
I preached two services on “Restoring our Foundations in Genesis,” and Vic preached a shorter version during an evening service for Telegu workers from India. A member of the church had an Answers in Genesis book table in the foyer, which sold out completely of Ken’s and other books.We praise the Lord for the way AiG is going worldwide as we equip Christian leaders around the world.
Two church members pledged to help us get creation science into a university and government schools. A Telegu returning to India plans to help us schedule in Bangalore, where I have previously been invited to a Bible school and Indian pastors who graduated from my alma mater in Tacoma, Washington.
Florida This WeekendThis Saturday and Sunday I will be speaking at Calvary Chapel–Kendall in Miami, Florida. This is my final speaking event out on the road for 2008 (though I still have speaking events at the Creation Museum this year). On Saturday evening and Sunday morning, I will be giving the same basic message at each service—then two different presentations Sunday evening. You can obtain the details from AiG’s event calendar.
Norman Joins Petting ZooA miniature Jersey bull calf named Norman has now joined the museum’s Petting Zoo. Norman is 8 months old and was donated to us by an AiG supporter who lives near Columbus, Ohio. I have included a photo of Norman settling in to his new home.
Quiz for My Blog ReadersLast weekend I made a quick visit to a city for a special conference with Christian leaders (I was an attendee, not a speaker this time). See if you can guess where I was? Look at this picture taken in the city’s subway by my colleague on his cell phone. Many of you should be able to guess correctly. You can let me know at:
Done everythingThanks for stopping by and thanks for praying,
(Jeremiah 3:12–14) Go and proclaim these words toward the north, and say, Return, thou backsliding Israel, saith the LORD; and I will not cause mine anger to fall upon you: for I am merciful, saith the LORD, and I will not keep anger for ever. Only acknowledge thine iniquity, that thou hast transgressed against the LORD thy God, and hast scattered thy ways to the strangers under every green tree, and ye have not obeyed my voice, saith the LORD. Turn, O backsliding children, saith the LORD; for I am married unto you: and I will take you one of a city, and two of a family, and I will bring you to Zion
The return to God just involves acknowledging sin. How hard really is it to do? The Lord Jesus Christ has done everything to make the sinner welcome.
