Sue has planned a great trip for us, and thanks to her for making a dry run last summer to ensure that things ran smoothly. I have learned to appreciate the Queen city of Cincinnati, and learned more than I thought there was to learn about this area. The Creation Museum was awesome (we have an Awesome God) and I was humbled by the planetarium experience, realizing that our galaxy is but one of millions in the universe, and our solar system only a small part of our galaxy. And then to think that the eternal God chose to create life on earth, and then to come to planet Earth as a man to redeem his fallen creation...claiming us for our eternal home. AWESOME.
It has been good to spend informal time with the students and great to spend time with chaperones -- its been good chemistry. I enjoyed the ribs and picked up a recipe for Cincinnati Chili. We are not looking forward to the all night bus trip but that is part of the journey. It is getting time for devotions...and everyone is looking forward to being home for mother's day weekend. Thanks for your prayers.
I thought Ken Ham was really cool because we saw him in a video a few weeks before and it was cool to see him in person. He had a really cool accent. His message was about how society is no longer based on God's Word and all the trouble we are experiencing because of that. We need to teach our congregation members how to defend their faith and explain why we believe in creationism, even more strongly than evolutionists proclaim their message.
The Creation Museum was really fun. It was totally pretty and really interesting. My favorite part was the gardens because of all of the flowers and plants. Another cool part was the walk through of creation. The statues looked real :)
The duck rides were fun and we learned a lot of facts about Cincinatti and the surrounding area. Did you know the thompson sub-machine gun was made here? We also learned where to go if there is a tornado. (The Bengals football field....There has never been a touchdown there!)
Walking to Kentucky (the parents are way behind us). Then we walked back to Ohio. It took a really long time! My feet started hurting!
We walked across the blue suspension bridge that looks like the Brooklyn Bridge and then on the way back we walked across the Purple People Bridge.
