We thought we were heading to a warmer climate, but it appears like the plane flew in the wrong direction or they moved Texas to the middle of Canada! Bhrrrrr… It’s cold! Fortunately, we have dodged the sections that had snow and black ice. We have certainly been praying for clear roads!
Mary Jo and I have been filling in for Richard Stepanek at speaking events he had previously scheduled with creation groups in Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio. Due to his wife Sue’s difficult recovery from surgery, Rich needed to stay with her.
I always like a full schedule, so revising and filling up my schedule at the last minute posed a bit of a challenge. However, our schedule worked out fantastically with seminars and presentations at other locations as well. This included a “Classical Conversations” school (homeschool group that meets as a school one day per week). It took place 2 hours after our plane landed. I warned them that if there was a glitch in the flight, they may be doing the program themselves! We also did some church seminars and another full-day homeschool seminar besides the creation groups. So far, this has turned out to be a very full 2 weeks.
Our schedule also allowed us to swing by the Institute for Creation Research. It was good to visit with old friends there and catch up on some of the latest, and quite interesting, research they are conducting there. Hopefully, we will be able to be report on that as it gets to the point where it can be shared in publications. We are so glad that ICR is continuing with their desire to promote high quality research and materials for us to share with others.
It is also good to see creation associations springing up all over, just like the ones we have spoken to on this trip. We have also spoken to other Creation groups across the country, including: Pittsburg, Portland, San Francisco, Phoenix, Tucson, Albuquerque, Denver, Kansas City, and Minneapolis. If you live in any of these locations and want to be part of one of these groups, let us know and we will put you in contact with them.
The Creation movement has certainly spread. We hope that our readers will also continue to light the creation fires!
