Creation Update from Canada
It is such a blessing to see Creation Ministries from around the world serving their communities and presenting the life changing truth of the Gospel to a lost and dying world. Creation speaker and writer, Vance Nelson of Creation Truth Ministries in Alberta, Canada, tours with his traveling Creation Museum. Taking this unique museum to churches and communities, they teach creation facts to the next generation. You may remember Vance from his amazing book Dire Dragons, must-have, high quality, coffee table book for your home. Vance literally traveled to countries around the world documenting the amazing connection between dinosaurs and dragons!
Vance sent us an update from his latest exhibition which took place in Abbotsford, British Columbia, Canada. (I can’t imagine making that trip with an entire museum in tow!)
We set up our traveling museum in Abbotsford, BC from August 2-5, 2013. This was part of the Agrifair which is a rodeo combined with a country fair.
The response was phenomenal. We had over 5,500 people come through our museum which presents evidence for Creation, the Flood, and the Creator. We had about twenty volunteers helping run the museum and engage the visitors in conversation directly related to the trustworthiness of the Bible, and their need for Jesus Christ.
We also had four official speaking sessions which ran once a day in conjunction with the museum display. The response was very positive.
We had all age groups, and various nationalities. It was really incredible, and we praise the Lord for blessing our efforts.
It was telling how many younger people (20’s to 30’s) had been raised in the church, yet, had turned their backs on Christianity once they learned about evolution. Many of these individuals now claim to be atheists.
We had less than ten loudly vocal atheists. Many would bellow out insults and then leave quickly. It is interesting that none of them wanted to engage in a rational discussion. They preferred ad hominem attacks, and straw man arguments. When we tried to engage them, they would leave quickly.
Please continue to pray for the people who came to see the museum, and those we spoke with, that they might be encouraged in their faith if believers, and fall on their knees before the Lord if they are not, asking for forgiveness.
Please pray for Vance and the Creation Truth Ministries as they continue to impact eternity with the creation message.
