Well, here’s the encouraging letter I received from this adopted young lady:
Dear Mr. Ham,
My name is Esther [last name withheld]. I’m 14 years old. I am in a writing class and this I have an assignment to write a letter to someone I admire. You are the person I wanted to write to.
A year and a half ago, I was adopted from China. At that time, I did not believe that the Bible was truth. Evolution is what I was taught in China. But God did not let me go. God started showing me that He was real.
Once my family went to the Creation Museum, all the things I saw, I clearly heard God speaking to me and saying “this is the way to go.” My parents bought the Creation ministry DVDs in Chinese. I began watching the DVDs and started to believe that God created the world in six days and that we all are made by God’s hand. We are not from the Single-celled organisms I had been taught about. I began to read the Bible, and study God’s Word. Now, I am a believer in Jesus Christ. He is my Messiah.
Furthermore, I want to say thank you for your ministry. I learned so much and it has changed my thinking about Science and God’s world that He created.
This girl’s story highlights how important it is to teach Scripture beginning in Genesis! Genesis lays the foundation for the rest of Scripture and the gospel of Jesus Christ. I encourage you to visit our curriculum department in our online store for homeschooling resources, such as our Answers Bible Curriculum, that will help you lay the foundation for your kids.
Thanks for stopping by and thanks for praying,
