God is at work even when we Crash!

God is at work even when we Crash!

Posted on Dec 12, 2018 in Blog Posts, Marianis from the Front | 0 comments

I looked in the rear-view mirror and saw a Semi-truck barreling down on us…no more than 30 feet from us. I knew it was going to be bad. And a second later, I was looking all around trying to survey what just happened. I was still in control of the car, still going straight forward. I looked back in the rearview mirror and my 4-year old son was still sitting in the third row – just stunned – seemingly not in pain. The two younger girls in the second row had awoken from their...

“Scientific evidence does not have to be interpreted. Science is science.”

“Scientific evidence does not have to be interpreted. Science is science.”

Posted on Nov 21, 2017 in Blog Posts, Marianis from the Front | 0 comments

  The above was a response (“Scientific evidence does not have to be interpreted. Science is science.”) that I received while in a debate with an evolutionist. This is how I rejoined in the debate: Crime Scene Scientists, Paleontologists, and Archaeologists along with probably every other scientist is faced with the challenges of how to best interpret the evidence. If you were a crime scene investigator, you would come into a house and observe a dead body laying on the...

BLESSINGS!

In the same stream as my last blog (this time of year actually slows down enough to collect your thoughts again), I want to continue to reminisce on my recent travels.  So step back a little in time with me again (this was also last September).   …One added perk of a traveling creation ministry like ours, is the blessing of passing through parts of the country where our children now live. We currently have three daughters and sons-in-law who are in active...

LOOKING BACK….WHERE WERE YOU DURING THE SOLAR ECLIPSE ?

LOOKING BACK….WHERE WERE YOU DURING THE SOLAR ECLIPSE ?

  Looking back over the end of the summer, I thought I would do a little recollecting of some of the recent travels.  So step back a little in time with me.   … It seemed to us that almost everyone had come to Nebraska to view the solar eclipse! That became especially evident on the return home—more details on that later!  A pastor friend from Harrison, NE, had asked me (Rich) a number of months ago if I would be interested in giving an astronomy talk at his...

Junk DNA… Functional, but still Junk?

Junk DNA… Functional, but still Junk?

Posted on Oct 18, 2017 in Blog Posts, Nuttings from the Front | 1 comment

  This is intriguing. For years evolutionists have been predicting — then claiming without proof — that a high percentage of our DNA is “junk” – the leftovers from millions of years of evolution. Creationists predicted that since God doesn’t make junk, we will find important uses for so-called “junk DNA.” When we pointed out that virtually everything that was called “junk DNA” has now been shown to have important and sometimes vital functions,...

  Recently, my family and I were blessed to be able to help lead the Yellowstone Creation Tour and we had a blast! We had beautiful weather, we saw a lot of animals, and had great fellowship praising God and enjoying His creation together.   Now, here is a confession…I am a nerd. I get excited about the furthering education about all of the history, the facts and the creation evidence as seen at Yellowstone and it is just an amazing experience to be able to go...

Are we Sure of the Glad Tidings…

Are we Sure of the Glad Tidings…

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

  I had the opportunity in July to minister to a great group of third to fifth graders at Glad Tidings Bible Camp (located in northeastern Nebraska). The week was mostly hot and humid, but it was sprinkled with a few more manageable days.  This Coloradoan is not accustomed to the humidly. But as the days passed, I became much more acclimated. I began the week by asking the following question – “How many of you are not sure, if you were to die today, you would go...

The VBS package – Fun and informative

The VBS package – Fun and informative

Posted on Jul 18, 2017 in Blog Posts, Stepaneks from the Front | 2 comments

  Summer is a fantastic time for teaching at Vacation Bible Schools and camps. Rich recently took part in separate VBS programs in two different locations (as many as we can get). A comment we heard from one of the older participants was an encouragement. She told one of the VBS leaders – “Not only is he (Rich) teaching about the Bible, but he is also teaching about science. I learned more science in 30 minutes than I did in six months at school!”   Another...

How Old Are You…Really??

  Before I begin, I have a quick prayer request. AOI speakers have many camps and VBS’ coming up, so please pray for us and for those who will be attending! Now back to the story…   When I am doing a VBS or a camp, I like to start out the week with the following scenario: I tell the students that I am an alien. I have just arrived and I am on a scientific mission to study the human beings on Earth. Let the investigation begin! So I ask one of the campers –...

Sentiments from the Stepaneks

Sentiments from the Stepaneks

Posted on May 26, 2017 in Blog Posts, Stepaneks from the Front | 0 comments

  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

Posted on May 25, 2017 in Blog Posts, Nuttings from the Front | 0 comments

  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...
