Costa Rica Creation Tour Underway

Costa Rica Creation Tour Underway

Posted on Mar 15, 2017 in Blog Posts, Nuttings from the Front | 0 comments

  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...

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...

How did I Get to El Salvador?!

How did I Get to El Salvador?!

Posted on Mar 2, 2017 in Blog Posts, Nuttings from the Front | 0 comments

  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...

Oroville Dam — Pending Disaster??

Oroville Dam — Pending Disaster??

Posted on Feb 21, 2017 in Blog Posts, Nuttings from the Front | 0 comments

  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...

Is Creation a Salvation Issue?

Is Creation a Salvation Issue?

Posted on Feb 14, 2017 in Blog Posts, Nuttings from the Front | 0 comments

  Someone asked that question last week. The answer is “No,” but in some cases “Yes.” That sounds a bit confusing doesn’t it? The Bible’s clear teaching in Acts 16:31 is, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.”  Ephesians 2:8 says, “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God.” These verses and others say nothing about being able to correctly answer “entrance exam questions” to get into...

Study with Intent to Obey

Study with Intent to Obey

Posted on Feb 9, 2017 in Blog Posts, Nuttings from the Front | 0 comments

  Recently I was listening to a recorded teaching by Dwight Pryor (jcstudies.org). In the course of the teaching, Dwight mentioned that “Greeks” (Gentiles, western thinkers) study the Word of God for understanding – Jews study the Word to revere. In fact, many ancient rabbis taught that the highest form of worship was to study the Word with the intent to obey. This is not new to me, but it got me thinking again about my own study of God’s Word. Why am I reading the...

Team Time – Staff Highlights

Team Time – Staff Highlights

Posted on Feb 3, 2017 in Blog Posts, Nuttings from the Front | 0 comments

  During our team time a couple of weeks ago, each team shared some highlights of their year. Some expressed appreciation for having a newly completed office facility (come by if you haven’t already, and come again if you have) that is comfortable and will be utilized for our expanding local and tourist outreach. Brian & Aimee had several big changes this year, including: buying their first house, having a second child, as well as conducting a 2.5 month...

Brrrrr! It’s Cold Out There!

Brrrrr! It’s Cold Out There!

Posted on Jan 27, 2017 in Blog Posts, Nuttings from the Front | 0 comments

  Yes, I wondered about Dave’s sanity when he scheduled a seminar in north central Wyoming in the middle of January. After all, it’s COLD up there! But, we felt God was in it, so we headed north. And yes, it was cold (down to -20 and below)! However, after speaking at universities where we often find so many cold hearts, it was refreshing to receive a warm welcome and meet people who were willing to come out at sub-zero temperatures to hear the truth about Creation and...

  AOI has recently completed our staff team time in the new AOI office. This is a time when we meet to praise the Lord for what He has accomplished and chart out our year-long goals, anticipating the expanding impact and effectiveness of AOI’s ministry outreach. We will be disclosing some of these plans soon. In the meantime, keep checking our AOI website for developments. First of all, a big THANK YOU to our supporters for the opportunity to launch these plans....

Put on Your Own Mask First

Put on Your Own Mask First

    On a recent flight, the flight attendant went through the “safety talk.” You know the part about “If there is a sudden loss of cabin pressure, oxygen masks will drop from the compartment above you. Pull down on the bag, secure the mask over your nose and mouth, and breathe normally. . . . If you are travelling with a small child or someone who needs assistance, secure your own mask first, before helping them.” Wait a minute! Secure your own mask first? How...

How Does a Bat Know It’s Dark Outside?

How Does a Bat Know It’s Dark Outside?

Posted on Dec 22, 2016 in Blog Posts, Nuttings from the Front | 0 comments

I was recently at a place that has a lot of bats.  Frequently bats will hang from corners of ceilings. Many are found in caves where they come out at night. The other night, dozens of bats flew down the corridor of the hotel we were staying at.  Now that is a bit spooky when dozens of bats are flying right at you — worse, if you saw a spooky show featuring “killer” bats several years ago and shortly thereafter entered a deserted room in an abandoned house which was...

Indian Drawings of Dinosaurs?

Posted on Apr 16, 2015 in Nuttings from the Front | 3 comments

Mary Jo & I are currently leading a geology field trip of the Southwest for Jackson Hole Bible College. Besides seeing a lot of rock layers and formations (love that Flood Geology), they have gotten to see quite a few petroglyphs. One of those we saw looks interestingly like a bi-pedal dinosaur (image to the left). In another spot, we saw a petroglyph that looked like a sauropod dinosaur (the first is an actual photograph and the second is the photographically enhanced...
