Ark Encounter on ABC–TV News . . . Tonight?

The Ark Encounter is scheduled to be featured on ABC–TV’s newscast sometime soon, possibly tonight.

Diane Sawyer, anchor for the ABC–TV news program World News, has been airing a promo announcement today that AiG’s Ark Encounter will be featured tonight (Tuesday) on her evening newscast.

Of course, late-breaking news could mean that the segment will be postponed again. Also, here is an article about the Ark project that appeared in yesterday’s New York Times.

Even with some mocking coverage in the media, we are grateful to God for the wide media exposure.
