What would prompt two 16-year-old twin sisters in Ohio, USA, to
spend most of their waking hours for more than two months making
quilt blankets to donate to Answers in Genesis–US and
its museum project?
all the animals and man had been evolved in this ascendant
manner, then there had been no first parents, no Eden, and
no Fall. And if there had been no fall, then the entire
historical fabric of Christianity, the story of the first
sin and the reason for an atonement, upon which the current
teaching based Christian emotion and morality, collapsed
like a house of cards.’
– Wells, H.G.,
The Outline of History: Being a Plain History of Life
and Mankind, 4th rev., Cassell & Company Ltd, London,
U.K., p. 616, 1925.
A: As we
shared last month on our website, Sarah and Elizabeth Garcia decided
to use their quilting talents to raise up to $30,000 for the Creation
Museum, under construction in Northern Kentucky.
In May, the girls and their parents drove down from their central
Ohio home and presented AiG with 115 donated ‘ragtime
child-sized quilts.’ The family had also donated all the
materials needed to make the quilt blankets (and the beanie-style
dinosaur wrapped inside each), so that for a museum gift of $250
or more, the entire amount of a person’s museum donation could
be tax-deductible (for US citizens).
Today, we are announcing that these young ladies have also sewn
larger quilts. For a larger donation to the museum, the Garcias
see this as a special way for them (and AiG) to thank you for your
donation to the museum building fund, and hope that this would be
an opportunity to get a smaller ragtime child-sized quilt for a
newborn in your family—or as a gift for the family of someone
you know who is expecting a child or has just had one. Or these
larger quilts could be used by older children … and even adults.
The large quilt packages include a number of carefully chosen accessories
(unique to each quilt), a wide selection of AiG materials (books,
videos and music), a hand-numbered tag and a ‘care card’
containing words of dedication to the museum—all designed
to be mementos of your support of this project. There is only one
of each of these quilt packages, so don’t wait too long if
one of them catches your eye!

the Wind an accurate portrayal of the Scopes Trial?
Rarely does a year go by that the Jerome Lawrence and Robert E.
Lee play and film Inherit the Wind is not produced by a local
school or shown on television somewhere. Inherit the Wind
is not a documentary, but it is perceived by many viewers to be
a documentary-drama of the famous 1925 Scopes ‘monkey’ trial. What
are the differences between the two?

Praise and Prayer | Upcoming AiG Events
Praise and Prayer
Please pray over the following items during the next two weeks
Please pray for the numerous advance museum tours that AiG has
been hosting recently. Pray that the many people who are attending
these eye-opening tours would ‘spread the word’ and
get many more people behind the Creation Museum (faith target
date—Spring ‘07) . For more information please go
for construction and design updates. If interested in scheduling
a personal tour please contact Sharon Mardis at 859-727-2222 ext.
In just a few weeks we will be hosting our first ever Creation
‘College’ (in nearby Indiana). So far, over 500
people have registered for this intensive training session for
creation speakers (including prospective ones), researchers
and writers. Pray that as they leave this ‘college,’
the participants will be better equipped to impact their churches
and communities with the creation/gospel message.
We give thanks to the Lord for the many parents who have written
AiG recently expressing their gratitude for our materials in
supporting them in their responsibilities as parents.
Pray for an important upcoming meeting with a family who has
written VBS curriculum using AiG’s materials. Pray that
we will be able to work with them to produce a very special
resource that we can offer to the world.
