Take Me Out to the Creation Museum

This Cincinnati/northern Kentucky area has baseball fever—the Cincinnati Reds, who play about 20–25 minutes from our Creation Museum, won their division and are heading for the playoffs this week. Over the past two years, we’ve had some Reds players visit the museum, but the largest group of players ever to tour was with the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Here is a photo of them taken inside the museum’s portico.  Third from the right is Kentucky native Brandon Webb. One of our staff members shared with me that Brandon earned one of the most prestigious awards in baseball—the Cy Young Award, which is given to the best pitcher in the league.  Brandon won it in 2005. He admitted to us that growing up, he rooted for the Reds.

Mickey Weston (a baseball chaplain) played in the majors as a pitcher, mostly for the Baltimore Orioles and New York Mets in the late 1980s and early 1990s. His baseball ministry can be reached through this website.

A Pastor Ham

Yesterday morning, I spoke at a Baptist church in western Cincinnati where our eldest son Nathan has been appointed as pastor. This was the day for the church to officially welcome Nathan and his family in their new position. Nathan is a computer programmer during the week, and now, in addition to his usual job, is pastoring this church with a burden to reach people in Cincinnati with the gospel.  I gave my testimony concerning my upbringing in Australia, and I told them how my father and mother taught me to stand on the authority of God’s Word—and now Nathan (and the rest of our children) have had that legacy passed on to them.  Even if I say so myself, Nathan is a very good Bible teacher. Here is the church’s website: http://www.harvestbaptistcincy.org/

Here are some photographs taken yesterday:

Devotion

(Deuteronomy 22:1)  Thou shall not see thy brother’s ox or his sheep go astray, and hide thyself from them: thou shall in any case bring them again unto thy brother.

The Creator is the Lord Jesus Christ, and lost souls are His lost property—how important it is to actively search for His lost to bring the gospel to them.

Thanks for stopping by and thanks for praying,
