Cool Testimony!!

Posted on Feb 1, 2022 in Blog Posts, Creation Nuggets, Johnsons from the Front | 0 comments

I came across this article in an older Think & Believe Newsletter. As I was, I think you will be blessed by Lanny’s testimony here: “All of the AOI speakers minister to thousands of people every year both in groups and one-to-one. Because of the traveling nature of AOI’s ministry, we share for a brief time, but then travel down the road to a new event. Mostly, all we are able to do is plant a seed of truth and encouragement, and pray that it falls on fertile soil. The...

Economic Crunch

Posted on Jul 1, 2011 in Johnsons from the Front | 0 comments

This last week we were to teach at the 3rd camp at IdRaHaJe, working with High school age campers. Unfortunately, one of the groups that normally bring youth in from Utah had to cancel because of economics … fuel prices are just too high. Just before we headed out the door to return up to the camp, after a short 2 days home between camps, the director called with the news that they had to cancel the High school camp for financial reasons. Since we had to return to the camp...

Camp IdRaHaJe West – Week 2

Posted on Jun 29, 2011 in Johnsons from the Front | 0 comments

Marilyn and I spent another week at Camp IdRaHaJe West above Paonia, CO. This week we taught Creation to the Middle School Camp (6th – 9th Grade) of 60 campers, 12 counselors, and numerous other staff. We had another very exciting week. As at the Junior Camp, we had a mixture of church-going kids, non-churched kids, and kids coming from churches where the Bible is not taught. The Holy Spirit was really evident at this camp …we had 30 campers put their faith and trust in...

Camp IdRaHaJe West

Posted on Jun 23, 2011 in Johnsons from the Front | 0 comments

Marilyn and I spent last week at Camp IdRaHaJe West above Paonia, CO., where we taught Creation to a Junior Camp (2nd – 6th Grade) of 56 campers, 12 counselors, and numerous other staff. IdRaHaJe stands for I’d Rather Have Jesus. It was an exciting week, where we had the blessing of being able to teach two 1 ½ hour chapels a day. The campers were very enthusiastic … they were actually running to chapel, and coming 10 to 15 minutes early! After the first chapel, some...

A Rose is Still a Rose

Posted on Jun 17, 2011 in Johnsons from the Front | 0 comments

The roses around our house are now in full bloom reminding me of an article I recently read from Creation Moments –  A Rose Is Still A Rose. Man has been breeding roses for quite a long time. The Chinese began breeding roses about 4,000 years ago. Rose breeders around the world have produced over 4,000 variations of roses that vary in size, color, frequency of bloom and scent. Over 25 different scents have been developed! Walter Lammerts, a leading world authority on...

BUT GOD YOU PROMISED!

Posted on Feb 17, 2011 in Johnsons from the Front | 0 comments

Isaac was 40 years old when he married Rebekah.  Grandpa Abraham had been promised many offspring, but after several years of marriage, Rebecca had still not conceived.  I imagine that Isaac was saying, “But God you promised!”  He probably wondered if he should have married sooner or have had more faith. Who knows his doubts?  Gen. 25:21 says Isaac pleaded with the Lord and Rebekah conceived.  Prayer answered … smooth sailing … NOT! Verse 22 says the twin babies...

“Historic-earth” Creationist

Posted on Jan 5, 2011 in Johnsons from the Front | 2 comments

“Are you a Young Earth or an Old Earth creationist?” This is a question we get quite often, especially when trying to set up seminars with churches or groups that have never seen or heard of our program. My answer used to always be “Young Earth”. However, I now give a different answer to the question. Now don’t get me wrong … I do believe in a young earth, recently created about 6000 years ago. I believe in that age because of the genealogies...

Black Bart the Friendly Pirate

Posted on Dec 29, 2010 in Johnsons from the Front | 0 comments

Just before Christmas, we had a visitor adopt us … a coal black raven. I have been putting scraps, left over from butchering an elk, out near our pond for the wildlife to enjoy. The birds have really enjoyed this “manna” from heaven. Within minutes of putting out the scraps, magpies show up, followed by ravens, blue birds, and then an occasional red-tailed hawk. Coyotes and bobcats have also visited the banquet. One day I was kneeling on the ground out in the...

What is Christmas?

Posted on Dec 23, 2010 in Johnsons from the Front | 0 comments

The celebration of Christmas is a wonderful time of year that I enjoy very much. However, the Christmas season is not about traditions, emotions, the giving of presents, family, or decorations … and it’s certainly not about Santa Claus. Even though these can all bring us delight and give us warm “fuzzies”, these are not the true meaning of Christmas. At Christmas, we celebrate the birth of Jesus the Christ child. What that infant did when he grew into a...

AOI’s Newsletters

Posted on Dec 22, 2010 in Johnsons from the Front | 2 comments

I was able to get the Kids Think & Believe Too! newsletter finished and ready for the printer before the busyness of Christmas season took over. AOI publishes an adult newsletter and a children’s newsletter every 2 months. Dave and Mary Jo Nutting, along with occasional guest writers, write the articles for Think and Believe, and then have graphic artist Mark Sonmor add the artwork and layout. I (with occasional help from my wife Marilyn) write the Kids Think...

Prophecy Fulfilled

Posted on Dec 17, 2010 in Johnsons from the Front | 0 comments

In the 1830’s Charles Lyell created uniformitarianism, the idea that “the present is the key to the past”, a popular philosophy. From this philosophy came the foundation of modern geology – billions of years of slow and gradual geological processes. With this timescale in place, Darwin’s theory of organic evolution emerged to try to explain the development of all life on earth. As a result, the worldview in place today has turned away from the...

Creation Ministries – Making an Impact

Posted on Dec 15, 2010 in Johnsons from the Front | 0 comments

Recently I was in the doctor’s office getting some stitches in a couple of my fingers as a result of an accident in the workshop. As the doctor, still in residency, was stitching me up, I began to ask him about his education, where he was from, etc. … just getting to know him. After a short time, he asked what I did for a living. Since I was dressed in old patched insulated coveralls (covered with grease, sawdust, and fresh blood), and beat-up work boots (with grease...
