Today is Veterans Day in America. After the massacre at the Ft. Hood, Texas, military post last week, this day becomes even more poignant. Also, I think of Mike Zovath, one of the founders of this ministry, who was a lieutenant colonel in the Army—he is recovering from heart surgery. A number of other AiG staff have also served in the military (e.g., Mike Riddle, Jim Stiles, Buddy Davis). Today we remember and thank those who have served in the U.S. military—and those currently serving.
Two of our long-time volunteers (about 15 years here) served during WWII: Art Hunsicker was in the famous Battle of the Bulge during the bitterly cold winter of 1944/45, and Dick Sauer served in the Pacific theater. Thank you, men, for your service as well.
Answers in Library’s Read Campaign
One of our friends and supporters sent this in:
I thought Ken Ham might get a kick out of this picture. Nappanee [Indiana] did a read campaign this summer, and Marcus and Debra sponsored me for a picture that is displayed in their coffee shop and I believe also at the city library. When I was asked to hold one of my favorite books, of course my mind went immediately to the [New] Answers Book :=) Hope you are having a great day.
Beyond Our Expectations
If you asked me what is one of the most-heard comments from people who visit the Creation Museum, it would be that it is “beyond their expectations.” Here is a comment received by email this past week:
Thank you so much for all you did for our family! [We] had a wonderful time at the Creation Museum . . . . We were all impressed with the excellence and thoughtfulness put into every display and how the whole complex was beyond our expectations. You have all done a tremendous job of showing how our Creator and Savior loves us from the beginning and to this day.
The entire staff and volunteers were helpful, courteous, and professional. The lecture by Dr. David Menton was educational and the Stargazer’s Planetarium was awe-inspiring. The grounds were peaceful and beautiful, and we enjoyed being out in the midst of the trees, water, and nature. We have already shared our journey with many family and friends, encouraging them to experience it for themselves.
Called thee by thy name
(Isaiah 43:1) But now thus says the Lord that created you, O Jacob, and he that formed you, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed you, I have called you by thy name; you art mine.
The Lord Jesus Christ calls each sinner by his name with an intimate knowledge of everything about him and a deep concern for his eternal destiny.
Thanks for stopping by and thanks for praying,
