Costa Rica Tour- The Learning Experience

Costa Rica Tour- The Learning Experience

Posted on Mar 28, 2017 in Blog Posts, Nuttings from the Front | 0 comments

  Teaching on the 2017 Costa Rica Tour took many forms — on the bus, in the field, and in several evening lectures, and even within these formats they differed to a degree. To the right, Mary Jo is answering a common evolutionary taunt. She is explaining how you can get all the various skin colors from blackest black to whitest white in a single family… simply starting with parents of medium skin color. That coupled with the dispersion at the Tower of Babel...

A STEP INTO TEXAS HISTORY

  This past January, during our winter Discover Creation tour through New Mexico, Texas and Oklahoma, Marilyn and I were able to “step back” into part of Texas history when we had the opportunity to teach at the Independence Baptist Church located in the small town of Independence, Texas. The Independence Baptist Church was organized in August 1839. Since it was begun, the church has never ceased to meet, making it the oldest continuously serving Baptist church in...

  Mary Jo & I have been leading a Creation Tour of Costa Rica for an adventurous group (really not that strenuous… but exciting). This is a wonderful place to teach and experience design features in nature… as well as a marvelous place to appreciate our Creator God and give him thanks! (See Romans 1!) At the beginning of the tour, we were in a cloud forest at the top of a volcano, about 8500 feet. Unfortunately, we couldn’t see into the crater due...

  PSALM 92:1-2 – “It is good to give thanks to the Lord,  And to sing praises to Your name, O Most High;  To declare Your lovingkindness in the morning,  And Your faithfulness every night.”   We are so thankful for the Lord’s lovingkindness and faithfulness as we recently concluded another seminar tour (we are heading out today for another tour). It was a very good trip, not unlike many, many before it, but it was a bit busier than most.  At our first...

  A few days ago we celebrated my Mother’s 90th birthday. My wife, two daughters, sister and a few friends intended to pull off this event as a surprise party. However, my mother is a traveler … she makes several major trips a year (recently returning from a 2 week cruise through the Panama Canal). We decided we probably should let her know what was being planned to insure that she would be here for her own party! Also, she is a very social lady – Church, Genealogy...

Ministry in El Salvador

Ministry in El Salvador

Posted on Mar 7, 2017 in Blog Posts, Nuttings from the Front | 0 comments

  Last week, I had the opportunity to speak at several churches (with groups ranging from 65 to around 200), a university with 25 in attendance, a public school group of about 50 teens and a Christian school of an estimated 125 to 150 high school and middle school students. All of this was in the country of El Salvador. (The sign at the right says: Dave Nutting Welcome to the City of God.) The churches had special services on Saturday night, and Sunday morning as well...

Watching Movies…Easy. Making Movies…

Watching Movies…Easy. Making Movies…

Posted on Mar 3, 2017 in Blog Posts, Marianis from the Front | 0 comments

I love watching movies… I love watching documentaries. I think I tend to learn better visually and with audio. Lately, in fact, as a team, we at AOI have been realizing that video appears to be the way that most people think and learn…or at least prefer to be entertained. So we are realizing that we want to do a better job of capturing our information in video form. And that has been the challenge for me as of lately. Watching videos is great! Making videos should be no big...

How did I Get to El Salvador?!

How did I Get to El Salvador?!

  Life is an adventure when He does the scheduling! Recently (leaving two days ago), I was in El Salvador, a country I had never even thought about going to! So how did it come about? It’s a long winding road – and a real testimony to how God works!  Over 10 years ago, Mary Jo and I were speaking at Summit Ministries in Manitou Springs, CO, when we ended up having lunch with Johnathan, a campus pastor from Minnesota. After hearing him talk about the exciting ministry...

  On a recent trip to Nebraska, while visiting our daughter’s family for the birth of our granddaughter, the church where our son-in-law pastors decided to set up an impromptu three night creation seminar (knowing that Rich was visiting). We had really come to help take care of our one year old grandson during this time, but the Lord allowed us also to be used to train others, specifically some youth who needed answers for a conversation they would be having with an...

THE “EVOLUTION” OF GRAPHIC PRESENTATIONS

THE “EVOLUTION” OF GRAPHIC PRESENTATIONS

Posted on Feb 23, 2017 in Blog Posts, Johnsons from the Front | 1 comment

  You have probably heard that “A picture is worth a thousand words.” Studies have shown that 80% of the knowledge our brain accumulates comes from sight. So with these two thoughts in mind, we have chosen to use pictures and graphics as a powerful tool for teaching. For the last 24 years, Marilyn and I have used many techniques for projecting images. When we first began with AOI, Marilyn was doing the major amount of teaching with a flannel board. This limited us to...

  We are currently teaching and traveling in northwest Kansas. Rich had the unusual opportunity to teach six nights straight as well as the Sunday School and church services. He was also asked to speak at the church Valentine banquet on Friday night. The topic he chose was on love, marriage, and the unique roles that husbands and wives play. The foundation for all of this, of course, comes from the book of Genesis.  All the other sessions were an in depth study...

Oroville Dam — Pending Disaster??

Oroville Dam — Pending Disaster??

  The news was abuzz recently over the potential flood disaster in California. Is it that serious? In the November/December issue of our newsletter, Think & Believe, I wrote an article entitled “China’s Yellow River Floods.” The actions which the emperor took to save millions of lives in danger from the imminent collapse of a 600 foot tall dam raised his reign to the dynasty level. As the story unfolded, about 200,000 people were evacuated from below the Oroville...
