We are now receiving more and more great feedback from those churches who used AiG’s first-ever VBS program, “Amazon Expedition.” We will be putting a selection of this feedback on our website in the very near future. Here are just two emails received recently:
1. We just finished Amazon Expedition for our VBS 2008. While space doesn’t allow me for all comments, overall it was one of the best VBS programs we have ever done. By far, the material was more relevant and applicable to the students than other VBS programs. We had 4 salvation decisions (Praise the Lord!) in our 5th and 6th grade classes. I just wanted to comment that while you are developing the 2009 VBS, please keep the material different from other VBS programs.
I can’t wait to hear more about VBS 2009. Thanks!
Yes, we will be making the material for all our VBS programs very different from most other such programs available. They will have an emphasis on apologetics, biblical authority, the gospel, and relevancy to where children are at in today’s world. The VBS program for 2009 is well underway and is themed about space. Look for coming promotions of this unique VBS from AiG.
2. Last week at [our church in ] Michigan it was a jungle!! The children really enjoyed the decorations advised in the material you sent for our VBS! It was all so easy to follow and SOOO much information! The children wanted us to continue for another day! We really liked the way you included crafts, games, and snacks to reinforce the lesson for the day. Giving us amounts of food to buy for the snacks was a blessing! We can’t wait to see what you have for us next year! We are so pleased with your program . . . . But thank you for “One of the greatest VBS weeks we have ever had.” A quote from [our] Pastor.
CELL PHONE SAGA
My colleagues and others often “rib” me about the amount of usage I make of my cell phone. They claim I am addicted! However, I want you to know that there is someone who outdoes me with cell phone usage—look at the photograph taken in Wyoming recently.
My wife, Mally, spends more time on her cell phone talking to our kids on a daily basis!
Here are a few photos of interest taken at the Creation Museum lately:

The latest country we received an email from is the Bahamas. This brings us to 106 countries from which AiG has received communications.
Recently we found out that two totally different but powerful advanced pieces of technological equipment are being donated to AiG and the Creation Museum. Once these are installed, I will tell you more about them—but this will help us take the museum experience and certain presentations at the museum to an even higher level than it is now. Praise the Lord for those He has raised up to do this.
(Deut 27:8-9) And thou shalt write upon the stones all the words of this law very plainly. And Moses and the priests the Levites spake unto all Israel, saying, Take heed, and hearken, O Israel; this day thou art become the people of the LORD thy God.
God instructs us as His people to love the Word of God and want it to be read and plainly understood by posting it to make it readily available for all to read.
Thanks for stopping by and thanks for praying.
