It’s a boy! Well, he is not here yet but due to modern technology (which has nothing to do with evolution) Eric and Tanya Hovind discovered yesterday that child #3 for them is a boy. After having two wonderful girls, Stephanie, soon to be 4 and Angie age 2 Â½ this was exciting news for Eric and Tanya. This one will bring the total to 5 grandkids for Jo and I. All live within 100 yards and come see “grandpa” and “granny Jo” every day. What a joy! We enjoyed raising our three but this grandpa stuff is much better!
Dinosaur Adventure Land continues to have visitors every day even with school starting back last week. Our DAL home school classes begin in a few weeks so stop by the bookstore and sign up if you want to come.
Construction and remodeling will begin in a few weeks on “Camp Creation” in Ellisville, Mississippi. Call Dan Vallis, 850-479-3466 ext. 123 if you want to help. He will need painters, framers, finish carpenters, yard workers, trail blazers to clear nature trails and general grunt workers anytime over the next few months. Bring your family and stay in the dorms for a few days if you like.
Other news, the court date over the IRS battle has been moved to Oct. 17 now so keep praying please. Costs of defending ourselves against these bogus charges have been astronomical! Thank you to those who have donated to the “legal defense fund.” You can call in a credit card donation or donate on line.
Eric continues to travel and preach but nearly all my September meetings have been cancelled so if you know of any church, school or group in northern Florida that would be interested in having a creation seminar on short notice please call Marlissa at ext. 113. I must confess though that after traveling hard for 17 years the stay at home break has been great! I am getting things done on the honey do list and seeing more of my wife and family than I have in a long time.
The CSE 101-104 series has been, and continues to be, a blessing to thousands since it was taped in 1999 but now, after months of delay and technical problems, college class CS 201 is finally nearing completion. This new series has much more information to help those wanting to be better prepared to defend their faith against those who believe in evolution. Watch the web site for scores of other new products as well.
We also need a full time web master to come join the ministry team. Â Call Glenda at ext 110 for an application.
All for now,
