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...

The Power of Prayer

  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...

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...

Handyman by Day, Speaker by Night

  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...

Not There for the First Crawl

Not There for the First Crawl

Posted on Feb 10, 2017 in Blog Posts, Johnsons from the Front | 0 comments

  As most of the speakers at AOI can attest, being out on the road at speaking venues takes us away from many of the accomplishments of our kids or grandkids. Marilyn and I have been there for the birth of all seven of our grandkids, so that has been a real blessing; however, we have also missed many of their concerts, recitals, plays, games and “firsts”. While out on the present speaking trip, we missed our 7 month old Reed taking his first crawl. I really thought he...

Team Time – Staff Highlights

  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...

  I forgot my camera recently (would have loved a picture), but we were blessed with the opportunity to speak at an Albuquerque, New Mexico Christian School… and during chapel time we had 500 high school students, followed by 400 middle school students.  The remainder of the day Lanny taught 6 different 7th grade classroom sessions with 40-60 students at a time. From 7:15 am until 3:00 pm, it was non-stop talking!  If that wasn’t enough teaching for the...

An Encouraging Christmas Card

An Encouraging Christmas Card

Posted on Jan 18, 2017 in Blog Posts, Stepaneks from the Front | 0 comments

One of the great blessings of the Christmas season is to connect by cards and letters with family and friends that we have not seen or spoken with through the year. One recent card we received was from a family that had attended an AOI creation seminar. The mom shared how she, a teacher, was able to explain to her students the difference between micro and macro evolution. “My students are listening!” she said, “what they do with it is up to them.” We never know the impact...
