It was thrilling yesterday to receive a copy of our booklet The Seven C’s of History translated into the Kreyol language (spoken in Haiti and other countries). In some languages, they have to translate the 7 C’s into “7 periods” or “7 ages” etc. However, in the Kreyol language they were able to translate it into 7 K’s!
You can see the 7 K’s on the scan of the cover below. Because it is related to the French language, you will be able to see the similarities with the English words we use for the 7 C’s. AiG resources are currently being translated into many different languages all across the world. We praise the Lord for the way He has opened doors for this information to be spread far and wide.
Here are some scans from this booklet in the Kreyol language.
Mastodon Gets Its Head!
The cast of the giant mastodon skeleton being assembled in our Answers in Genesis workshop for future display in the Main Hall of the Creation Museum received its head and ribs today. I have included two photographs of this giant creature that we believe will be a real hit when it is installed in the Creation Museum at the end of the month.

NRB E-Newsletter Reports on Already Gone Release
The latest National Religious Broadcasters e-newsletter contained a brief news release about the new book Already Gone. The report states:
New Release for Master Books
On May 26th, Master Books released the title, Already Gone: Why Your Kids Will Quit Church and What You Can Do to Stop It. Written by Answers In Genesis (AiG) President and CEO Ken Ham and America’s Research Group (ARG) Chairman Britt Beemer, Already Gone states that, “From across Christendom the reports are the same . . . most youth of today will not be coming to church tomorrow.”
Based on an ARG survey of 1,000 young adults who have left church, the book’s authors say that more children are lost by middle school and high school than in college. Survey respondents were divided into two groups: those that have left church and never plan to return, and those that plan to attend church on holidays someday when they have children. Of the first group, 56% said that secular science had taught them to doubt the Bible. And while most in the second group believe in Jesus Christ and consider themselves “saved”, they are troubled by perceived inconsistencies in organized Christianity.
“The Bible is relevant to them,” note the authors, “but the Church is not.” Already Gone also offers a detailed analysis of Sunday School programs and explains why most are “statistical failures”.
You shall no more give the people straw to make brick, as heretofore: let them go and gather straw for themselves. And the tale of the bricks, which they did make heretofore, you shall lay upon them; you shall not diminish ought thereof: for they be idle; therefore they cry, saying, Let us go and sacrifice to our God (Exodus 5:7–8).
When we dedicate ourselves to spend time with the Lord Jesus Christ, we battle against being called idle, work cries out to be accomplished which distracts us.
Thanks for stopping by and thanks for praying,
