In a recent news article, there was a very interesting admission in regard to ice formation in the Antarctica. As you read this, keep in mind the work of AiG friend Michael Oard and his post-Flood, Ice Age model in which he says ice formed quite rapidly as a result of conditions at the end of Noah’s Flood. The news item stated:
Jagged mountains the size of the Alps have been found entombed in Antarctica's ice, giving new clues about the vast ice sheet that will raise world sea levels if even a fraction of it melts, scientists say. . . .The secularists will probably complain bitterly that this scientist would even suggest such a thing that goes against their millions-of-years ideas for ice formation in the Antarctica.
“The surprising thing was that not only is this mountain range the size of the Alps, but it looks quite similar to the (European) Alps, with high peaks and valleys,” said Fausto Ferraccioli, a geophysicist at the British Antarctic Survey who took part in the research. He told Reuters that the mountains would probably have been ground down almost flat if the ice sheet had formed slowly. But the presence of jagged peaks might mean the ice formed quickly, burying a landscape under up to 4 km of ice.

Wow!Here is an example of feedback we receive from our ministry out in the field. I trust this person’s enthusiasm is encouraging for you—and contagious:
I thank God for you and the ministry, work and focus He has through you. I wanted to try and convey and share with you how much this seminar has meant to me and my family. My parents went to your seminar on the West Coast a few weeks ago and shared highlights and how great it was. Dad sent a link to your website and I explored it finding out that only 3 1/2 hours away from us was [another] seminar in Lynchburg, VA. And not only that–it was free!
I really enjoy and appreciate learning how to defend my faith as well as learning more about God and how He works and what He uses. But what I didn’t expect and has made this trip and experience so VERY wonderful were the reactions of our 12-year-old daughter and 10-year-old son. We came knowing that it was suggested for 13+ so I had been praying that they would be able to understand and appreciate some of what was to be presented.
Wow! God took that and ran with it! I was very unprepared for their excitement and enthusiasm! The first night, my daughter was so excited she was almost jumping out of her seat. She was punching in to the air and loudly whispering, “Yeah! That’s right! Take that!” She was so excited to see proof for God and what He has done and is doing! When I asked both of the kids about their favorite parts, they both mentioned things that Dr. Snelling and Dr. DeWitt had shared and shown. I was surprised at this because their sessions were more challenging for me to follow and stay focused on.
We know we must still walk by faith but it is also refreshing, wonderful and exciting to get to see some of the details of how God does or might do his great and wondrous works. It seems the more He allows us to see, the less the world can see–the blinder they get.
Thank you, again, for all you do, your love and passion for the Lord and the absolute Truth and reliability of His tremendous Word!
Contagious enthusiasmThanks for stopping by and thanks for praying,
(Zechariah 8:21) And the inhabitants of one city shall go to another, saying, Let us go speedily to pray before the LORD, and to seek the LORD of hosts: I will go also.
We are revived when instead of thinking of every little thing we have to do before our daily devotions, we say with a contagious enthusiasm I have to race to prayer.
