In 1993 the rescue operation and battle now known as Black Hawk Down occurred in Mogadishu, Somalia. This event is recognized as one of the most intense battles ever fought by US forces, with several soldiers being killed and many others injured. One of the Army Rangers involved, Buck Wilford, retired as a Green Beret and is now a pastor near Cleveland, Ohio. He spoke at our 2014 Answers for Pastors Conference and recently visited the Creation Museum with his family.
Pastor Wilford said this of the Creation Museum and Ark Encounter:
We love the Creation Museum and the Ark. Every time we go, it is such a blessing for my wife and kids to see things in a correct biblical perspective. The Ark is an experience I recommend to everyone I know.
We are thankful for pastors who stand on the authority of God’s Word and teach their congregations to do the same. They truly are on the front lines of this spiritual war and cultural battle we’re fighting (Ephesians 6:12). We need many more pastors like Buck!
Thanks for stopping by and thanks for praying,
