The Ark Encounter Opens!
DAY 9 - Tuesday, July 5, 2016
Williamstown, KY and Hebron, KY www.arkencounter.org
Psalm 106:1 “Praise the Lord. Give thanks to the Lord, for He is Good; His love endures forever.”
THE ARK ENCOUNTER in Williamstown, KY - Ribbon Cutting Ceremony. We weren’t prepared for the traffic - but the Williamstown police were and we got to the parking lot of the Ark Encounter a little later than we’d hoped but we got there safely. Then we joined a huge line of other donors and AIG supporters for the bus transport to drive us to the exhibit were the ribbon cutting ceremony would be held. We could see a side of the Ark from the line - Magnificent! Williamstown had their local marching band perform, There were Jewish Ram's Horn Players and other ceremonial music. It was a privilege to hear Ken Ham speak in person and to hear how the Holy Spirit directed their team to move to Kentucky and build these Museums and Exhibits. And boy did God ever bring together an amazing team of designers, builders, and many more excellent craftsmen - incredible Amish teams too! They knew God had skilled them and prepared them
Traffic on I-75 trying to get to Ark
There was a lot of people trying to get to the Ribbon Cutting
for this exact project. Thank you, Lord! The staff even released doves from the Ark door right after the ribbon was cut! Spectacular! We sang "Amazing Grace" and "How Great Thou Art" and even ate some scrumptious Chic-Fil-A sandwiches - mmmm, mmmm, tasty!
Geoff and I have supported Ken Ham and Answers in Genesis for 18 years. We’ve read about his Gospel dreams and prayed for him, his family and ministry throughout this time. It was incredibly emotional to be here with over 7,000 other brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus who have shared in this vision together! Thanks be to God! Creator of all things seen and unseen! To God be all the glory, great things He has done!
Now back to Hebron, KY to enjoy our second and final day at the Creation Museum. The towns are about a 45 minutes drive apart. That may be inconvenient for locals but when you’ve driven over 2,000 miles to get here a one hour drive is nothing! 😊 Our final day at the Creation Museum was more relaxed and less people. We watched a special effects show, “Men in White” and a planetarium show,
“Aliens: Fact or Fiction?” There’s a Zip Line course too - maybe Kai will do that for his birthday tomorrow? The kids got excited about the Summer Camps they have here “Camp Infinity” and there’s family camps also. So many incredible experiences to look forward too! I know we live quite a distance away but God can do anything! Our children are already planning to come back, Lord-willing! That will be tremendous!
We found the petting zoo and the girls got to ride a camel! They both LOVED IT! The animals were super sweet (and a little smelly). We’re still getting used to the Kentucky heat and humidity. We strolled through the bridges and gardens and wrapped up our time at the Creation Museum Summer 2016!
Back “home” to the Indian Springs Campground. One neighbor has a sign on his rig that states, “Home is where you park it!” Amen, brother! 😊 A few showers and a few s’mores and off to sleep we pray.
