During a meet and greet at the Creation Museum last week, I met five-year-old Ethan S. His parents told me he had learned the 7C’s of Bible history—which are presented in the museum—by heart. So, I asked him to recite them to me. He then ran through all seven faster than anyone I have ever heard recite them: Creation, Corruption, Catastrophe, Confusion, Christ, Cross, Consummation. Here is a photograph I had taken of Ethan and me:
How I pray we see many more “Ethans” being raised up in a generation who will call this nation back to the authoritative Word of God.
Death at the OlympicsAiG’s Worldwide director, Dr. David R. Crandall, sent this report about the Vancouver Olympic Games:
The Olympic ceremonies were indeed tainted by the tragic death of the Georgian luger Nodar Kumaritashvilli. I certainly am praying for Nodar’s family, friends, teammates, and even his country. Nodar was killed when he was in a practice run on the luge and was traveling 90 miles per hour.
As the story broke I immediately thought about 1996—the location was Centennial Olympic Park in Atlanta, and a bomb went off 12 hours after my wife and I were having lunch on that very spot. That tragic event took two lives and over 100 were injured. It was an event we will never forget.
AiG’s Olympic Ministry begins on Saturday, February 20, with over 110 people coming to the Games, not to be entertained, but to share Christ with the Olympians and the spectators. Olympic booklets, about 200,000, called Gold Rush Vancouver, will be distributed on the Streets of Vancouver, giving folks the good news of the gospel of Christ.Thanks for stopping by and thanks for praying, Ken
Please pray for God’s wisdom as we meet people from all over the world. The AiG ministry in Greece during the 2004 Olympics saw over 200 souls come to Christ and saw a man on his way to commit suicide gloriously saved. Will you pray for our team and let’s ask God for a great harvest of souls?
