Great Job, Sam

Posted on Oct 18, 2013 in Nuttings from the Front | 0 comments

  In one of my last blogs (Presentations at the University) about the university programs in Illinois and Minnesota, I mentioned that I had an interview with a student reporter from the campus newspaper (Minnesota State University at Mankato). I said in that earlier blog, “. . . but you never know about the objectivity of the reporter as well as his editor.  Sometimes there is accurate reporting while at other times —  well, sometimes, I can’t even recognize what they...

Northern Lights in Minnesota

Posted on Oct 3, 2013 in Nuttings from the Front | 0 comments

  Between midnight and 1 AM Wednesday morning, Mary Jo & I were returning to Minneapolis from our university presentations at Duluth. God demonstrated his glory in a great display of northern lights. It was not just a single burst of light, but for many miles along the highway, the display illuminated 1/3 of the sky. The timing was great as this light show punctuated the conversation that we were having with the campus ministry leaders as we were driving. We all...

God Most High

Posted on Oct 2, 2013 in Marianis from the Front | 0 comments

  I sat down today to write about having a high view of God. “This should be easy,” I thought to myself. “After all, there is so much to say about how big, how awesome God is, it should be no big deal to write that down.” I was wrong. It is a daunting task indeed to mentally plumb the depths and scale the heights of the greatness of God. I invite you to take a little trip with me as I trace my thoughts on this subject. Let’s consider…. …The human body – full of...

An Unexpected Surprise

Posted on Sep 5, 2013 in Stepaneks from the Front | 2 comments

  I had an unexpected surprise not too long ago.  A man on a motorcycle appeared in our yard one afternoon, and I was puzzled about who he was and what he wanted.  As I was pondering, I came to the conclusion he was a friend from Nebraska… but what was he doing here?   He lived over 500 miles away!  As we exchanged greetings, he let me know that he took the risk of driving to Grand Junction so he could learn more about creation and Genesis.  We had a wonderful...

The Human Brain – A Problem for Chance an Accident

Posted on Aug 29, 2013 in Johnsons from the Front | 0 comments

  In my last blog (The Mind Boggling Speed of the Human Brain) I wrote about the incredible speed of the human brain  … a man-made supercomputer (consisting of 82,944 processors … only 1 per cent of the neuronal network of a human brain) completed in 40 minutes the equivalent amount of activity that is observed to take place in the living brain within one second! To put that in perspective, that supercomputer is the equivalent of 250,000 personal computers. Yet the...

Creation Clubs In a Town Near You?

Posted on Aug 28, 2013 in Marianis from the Front | 0 comments

  We love how God, in His amazing sovereignty, directs our steps before we have any idea of what’s going to happen. We experienced that recently when we planned a last-minute trip to California to witness my two youngest brothers being baptized. We sent out some emails and contacted several people to see if there was any interest, or opportunity, to do some speaking and sharing about our work with AOI. It has been amazing to see how God has opened doors for us! One...

Creation Evangelism

Posted on Aug 22, 2013 in Stepaneks from the Front | 0 comments

  Looking back over this summer’s camps and VBS programs… we had a wonderful year.  We had a full summer with a number of different teaching opportunities.  Many of the campers either trusted Jesus Christ as their Savior, rededicated their lives to the LORD, or just had a great time of discipleship. I have discovered using creation evangelism is a wonderful way to explain the gospel, and to proclaim the true character of God.  Using Genesis and creation science...

Creation in Kenya

Posted on Aug 21, 2013 in Nuttings from the Front | 0 comments

    Alan and Diane Galbraith are volunteers with AOI and do a wonderful job working with the children. They shared AOI Discover Creation Children’s Adventure with missionary friends who are working in Kenya. The photo shows the Kenyan people using some of the resources in that VBS package. As you can see, the adults are really getting into it – besides the kids! This VBS package was developed by Lanny and Marilyn Johnson, who have been doing a lot of VBS’s...

Biblical Reliability Confirmed Again

Posted on Aug 14, 2013 in Nuttings from the Front | 0 comments

  FoxNews.com (July 18, 2013) reported on an archaeological discovery which once again supports the existence of the Biblical King David as well as the reliability of the Biblical record. In the very region where King David (Israel’s second king, 1010-970 BC) killed Goliath, a 10,000 plus square foot palace has been discovered. The palace is thought to be one of King David’s palaces and dates to the Biblical timeframe of his reign in Israel. Why is this discovery...

An Inside Scoop to Children’s Creation Ministry!

Posted on Aug 13, 2013 in Marianis from the Front | 0 comments

  A recent opportunity has become such a blessing to us, that I thought I would let you in on it.  As Aimee and I are just starting out and plugging in to AOI’s Creation ministry, God is continually teaching us. We had the privilege to go to Redcloud Family Camp and help out with the Children’s ministry. Alan and Diane Galbraith were in charge with a lot of help from their grandson, Griffin. Sue Stepanek, Aimee, and I were all able to help as well. So we had the inside...

Enjoying God’s Creation

Posted on Aug 6, 2013 in Nuttings from the Front | 0 comments

Mary Jo & I recently taught a week long kid’s camp at Camp Shiloh in Wyoming. On the way back, we decided to spend the weekend in the Wind River Range in Wyoming, enjoying God’s Creation… which we had been preaching about that entire week. I hope you enjoy the shots. These “older vintage” hikers managed a 12 mile hike high into the wilderness the first day. As if that wasn’t enough, the next day we took a 5 mile hike to loosen up the sore muscles.  Those sore...

Water in a Dry Place

Posted on Jul 25, 2013 in Nuttings from the Front | 0 comments

  It was a fun, but challenging week at Camp Shiloh in Wyoming, teaching 45 kids, ages 6-16, from extremely diverse backgrounds. Some of the kids were from solid Christian homes and have been at camp every summer for many years. Others were there for the first time and came from extremely difficult home situations. In addition there are cultural differences, as about ¼ of the kids are Native Americans from a nearby reservation. The knowledge level and spiritual...
