We’ve lost track of how many dozen times Tony Hillen–a Creation Museum charter member—has visited the museum. It’s not as is if he lives around the corner–Columbus, Indiana, is about a one-hour-forty-five-minute drive away. Even more impressively, he and his ministry friends have made sure that over 1,000 people have visited since we opened over 2 1/2 years ago.
Here is what Tony wrote to us recently
Dear AiG: From November 7, 2008, thru December 2009, our ministry has helped, funded, hosted or made arrangements for 1,055 visitors to the AiG Creation Museum! This figure does not include dozens coming prior to opening for behind-the-scenes tours. Best Regards, Tony Hillen, Director Seven Baskets ministry
Special VisitorsHere is a report from one of our Foto FX photographers at the Creation Museum:
Alice M. Brawand visited the Creation Museum today. With her she brought her daughter, Bonnie—and grandson with his fiancée.
They looked like an average family, but after a conversation with her, we found them to be anything but average. Alice is 77 and retired from Wycliffe Bible Translators after a long career as a missionary translator of the Bible. She and her husband, who is now in heaven, worked to translate the New Testament into the Guatemalan language called Rabinal Achi. This was an exceptional challenge, since this language had been only oral. No written form of it existed. The written language and its publication of the New Testament will be dedicated on January 10.
Bonnie Lafitte, Alice’s daughter, grew up in Ecuador from the age of two months. She attended Wheaton College and now lives in the States with her husband, John—whom she met in Ecuador. Together they work for HCJB global, where John is CEO of World Radio Network. They transmit the gospel to 10–20 million listeners in the Central American countries.
When asked what brought them to the museum she said she was visiting her grandson, Jared, who lives in the area—and he had raved about the museum, insisting they come. Her favorite exhibit was Noah’s Ark.
American Football Player Uses Animal Behavior to Comment on Tiger WoodsA news report from Seattle about a football player who played many years for our NFL football team the Cincinnati Bengals stated the following regarding famed golfer Tiger Woods and his well-publicized infidelity::
Everybody and their mother—especially Elin Nordegren’s mother—has thoughts on the Tiger Woods story these days. Which means Seattle Seahawks wide receiver T.J. Houshmandzadeh certainly wasn’t going to shy from the topic.
“You have to be more careful, man. He’s Tiger Woods,” Houshmandzadeh said Friday . . . . “But I don’t see the big deal about it. The president cheated on his wife. We’re all human.”
“Human beings are the only ones that have just one partner. You watch National Geographic and the lions, they have like five or six partners. . . . The human race is the only being that is monogamous with partners. That might not be natural to some.”And his ultimate words of wisdom?
“If you’re going to mess with somebody, mess with somebody famous. They’re going to keep it a secret like you’re going to keep it a secret."I would not want to be on the team playing the Seattle Seahawks—with a player who believes he is just an animal. Who knows what he is likely to do?

Me the fountain of living watersThanks for stopping by and thanks for praying,
(Jeremiah 2:13) For my people have committed two evils; they have forsaken me the fountain of living waters, and hewed them out cisterns, broken cisterns, that can hold no water.
As soul winners we constantly give out to the lost the gospel as water of life from a never-ending fountain of living waters which is the Holy Spirit within us.
