Finishing Their Journeys

This Saturday marks a special event at Answers in Genesis and the Creation Museum. Lowell Shoaf, who started walking across the U.S. to raise support for Ark Encounter and Canyon Ministries, will end his 1,800-mile walk here at the Creation Museum.

Our lead article today gives more details about Lowell’s journey, as well as pictures and a link to Lowell’s website. I’ve included the first couple of paragraphs below:

Canyon to Creation Walk and PrayIt is one of the most remarkable feats I have heard of in recent times. Lowell Shoaf, an Ohio resident and supporter of Answers in Genesis, will complete a 1,800-mile walk across America this Saturday, Lord willing, as he arrives at our Creation Museum in the Cincinnati area. Now, a number of people have completed long walks like this, but how many of them were 66 years old and have had a knee replaced? It is remarkable.

Lowell’s ambitious trek is his special fundraising effort to benefit Canyon Ministries (led by Tom Vail), Answers in Genesis, and AiG’s Ark Encounter project. In early June, Lowell started his walk at the bottom of the Grand Canyon. During his four months of walking to the Creation Museum—battling blisters, a hot summer, and careless drivers—Lowell has brought awareness and raised financial support for both Canyon Ministries of Arizona and AiG’s full-size Ark to be built in northern Kentucky. The journey that Lowell has been on is called “The Canyon-to-Creation Walk and Pray.”

AiG Friend and Prominent Christian Leader Chuck Smith Passes Away this Morning

I am sad to report—though I am glad he is no longer suffering from the effects of the Curse—that well-known pastor Chuck Smith of Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa passed away this morning in California. He had been battling cancer. I had the wonderful privilege of hosting Pastor Chuck and some of his Calvary Chapel colleagues at the Creation Museum in April.

For our tribute to this evangelist, Bible expositor, and apologist, please read our lead web article today, which includes photos of his museum visit and a link to a video of Pastor Chuck speaking to our staff. Please then pray for the Smith family.

Thanks for stopping by and for praying,
Ken
