Many of the dinosaurs you see inside our Creation Museum were built by staff member Buddy Davis in his (large) Ohio studio. Recently, a young man with cerebral palsy came by Buddy’s dinosaur studio; later we got a letter from the nurse who takes care of this youngster (he’s 10 years old)—this caretaker had known of Buddy from her church in the area. The lady asked if she could bring the 10 year old to see the dinosaur building/studio. She told Buddy that he loves dinosaurs and also enjoys reading about them, though he cannot really communicate well (but is learning sign language).
The youngster, we were told, had a big smile on his face the entire time he visited Buddy’s dinosaur studio. The caretaker also told Buddy that the boy’s mom said that it was the happiest she had seen him in a long time.
So, here is a dinosaur studio that is becoming a ministry in and of itself—it’s not just a studio that builds things for enjoyment later by visitors to the Creation Museum who see Buddy’s wonderful dino creations.

Latest on Dinosaur ResearchSpeaking of dinosaurs, I wanted to let you know that Dr. David Menton of our staff (PhD from Brown University in biology) was interviewed on St. Louis station KSIV-AM last week, and his insights on dinosaurs were quite interesting as questions were posed by interviewer Todd Wilkins on the “Issues, Etc.” program.
Here is a link to download the MP3 audio file of Dr. Menton’s interview—hit the green button labeled “download.” (Note: you may have to get a YouSendIt account, which is free, to access this interview.)

Can have compassion on the ignorant and out of the wayThanks for stopping by and thanks for praying,
(Hebrews 5:1–2) For every high priest taken from among men is ordained for men in things pertaining to God, that he may offer both gifts and sacrifices for sins: Who can have compassion on the ignorant, and on them that are out of the way; for that he himself also is compassed with infirmity.
Our calling is to be part of that kingdom of priests who have compassion on and faithfully carry to the Lord Jesus Christ the lost, trapped, and doomed by sins.
