Sentiments from the Stepaneks

  As we mark our 20th year in ministry, we are continually amazed and humbled by the faithfulness of the Lord.  We really didn’t know what the future held back in 1997 when we packed up our family and left the farm in Minnesota to go to Colorado. We didn’t know what to expect, but God did.  He is trust-worthy in every area of our lives and has seen us through many good times and some trials as well.  Even just last fall, as we were concerned about the short fall for...

Great Floods

Great Floods

  The other night, I presented a program called “Noah? A Flood of Evidence” to a group of eager learners at AOI’s center in Grand Junction. Part of it dealt with the huge floods resulting from breached dams, including Lake Bonneville and Lake Missoula, both of which almost instantaneously carved enormous canyons. The next morning, I noticed Richard Stepanek’s earlier blog called “A Tour of Catastrophes,” where he mentions how traveling on their speaking trip from...

As Sue and I traveled through Colorado, Utah, Idaho, Washington, and Oregon on a creation tour, we witnessed a number of different terrains and geologic features that speak of a catastrophic past. In Utah, we drove through what used to be ancient Lake Bonneville, which eventually drained causing a catastrophic flood which would carve the Snake River Canyon. The mountains of northern Idaho were a beautiful sight created by the world changing Flood in the days of Noah. As we...

  I thought everyone would like an update regarding the recent JHBC Spring Geology Tour.  Most everything went well except for… Bus problems at the beginning, even before the students arrived from Wyoming, left them stranded in Baggs, Wyoming for 2 nights.   Then, on the very last evening, one of the students found out wings would have been helpful as he fell about 10 feet off a ledge he shouldn’t have been climbing on. We were so thankful he “only” broke his arm...

A LONG JOURNEY

A LONG JOURNEY

  The best laid plans and preparation don’t always go as planned. Last week we prepared our truck and 5th wheel trailer for its first spring road trip. We were heading to Albuquerque, NM, and a nearby community to teach at a church, followed by a three day homeschool conference, where we were speakers as well as having a booth.  I had de-winterized the trailer, checked all the mechanical and electrical equipment and checked propane levels and tire pressures. Then the...

A STEP BACK INTO TIME

A STEP BACK INTO TIME

  Two weeks ago, Marilyn and I had the opportunity to teach at a Christian Academy in Vernal, Utah and a Sunday morning and evening at a church. Since Saturday was a free day, we went on a hunting trip, looking for a picnic and campground that I fondly remembered as a young boy. Sounds simple enough, but the last time I was there was over 60 years ago, and so my memory juices were really put to the test. I didn’t end up finding the campground … it is no longer...

Old and New… no matter

  Our recent travels through northwest Idaho, western Washington, and south central Washington brought us to a variety of different church buildings and congregations. Some churches are old and nostalgic and some were new and technologically savvy, but one thing remained the same—the need for TRUTH. Everyone, whether old or young, rich or poor, educated or uneducated, living in a small rural community or residing in the big city, needs to know the love of God and...

Costa Rican Creation Tour Continues

Costa Rican Creation Tour Continues

  In one of my previous blogs about the Costa Rican Discover Creation Tour, I left you in the misty rain of a cloud forest.  Wet, yes. However, it was an experience our intrepid explorers actually really enjoyed. The rain forests of this major ecosystem need the rain to remain so beautifully green and awe-inspiring.   Afterwards we took in the National Museum, where we were able to see and experience aspects of the country’s history…...

From Youth To Retirees – Something for Everyone

From Youth To Retirees – Something for Everyone

  I want to continue my recollection from recent tours… started in my last blog.  Our Idaho tour began Thursday evening (March 27th) with a night of teaching for the AWANA group at Cambridge Bible Church. They had been studying the beginning of Genesis and wanted to continue the theme, so it was very fitting to use my teaching on Genesis chapter 3.  I only had to make a few alterations of my usual program for these young people, and then I was off teaching.  The...

  Thinking back on a recent seminar tour, the tour I’m remembering began (March 10th) with a homeschool conference in the Salt Lake City, UT area. The beginning event was a museum tour of the North American Museum of Ancient Life in Lehi, UT.  Rich gave a tour and offered a creation perspective on the museum’s exhibits.  It was very well attended, over 70 students and adults, with all the participants attentively listening during the 2 hour presentation....

  We spent about ten days, a few weeks ago, at Cornerstone Bible Institute in Hot Springs, SD.  Rich was the speaker for the first week of their annual Bible Conference. During the 19 hours of regularly scheduled time, and an additional two hours of optional teaching (always looking for a little more time), he worked through Genesis chapters one to three, plus three other sessions – which included:  The Star of Bethlehem, The Creation of Angels, and Evolution,...

  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...
