I was recently moved by an email from an AiG friend who used to live in our area; while here, he had helped the AiG ministry in many ways. Paul moved to Arizona several weeks ago, but stays in touch; here's what he recently shared with us:
I was just reading Ken's daily blog, and he mentioned 3,000 museum visitors had shown up that day. All of a sudden the enormity of the museum's impact just hit me perspective-wise . . . a MILLION people have been through the museum so far, to see the Lord glorified. And that wonderful movie [The Last Adam] at the end of the walk . . . explains salvation better than anything I've heard.We praise the Lord with Paul over all of this!
A MILLION people—incredible.
I remember arranging the shipment of a small Cat D5C bulldozer from Washington state to Kentucky, [its use] donated [by] a supporter back in 2001 . . . one of the first pieces of equipment you had to start moving dirt. [I had been] called for transport help because I had trucking experience, as marked in your donor profile of me. And now, that plot of land influences 300,000-400,000 people annually for the Lord Jesus Christ. Incredible. [And millions of others through other outreaches of the overall AiG ministry].
This is truly unreal.
I know I'm stating the obvious, even after being at the museum dozens of times (we sure miss that . . . ) and even photographing it inside and out, but sometimes you take a moment to stop and think and realize how huge something is that the Lord has done . . . a million people, and that number isn't stopping.

By the way, Paul is an excellent photographer. Here is photo he took of our museum grounds:
Our staff photographers, Deb and Marty Minnard, have collected their own great photos of the museum gardens for a new book—Gardens at the Creation Museum.
Thanks for stopping by and thanks for praying,
